There were a handful of sandal trends that dominated our feeds last spring and summer, from tricky toe straps to the bedazzled heels we saw grace the feet of just about every fashion girl. As we approach open-toe season once again, there’s another cool-girl style to keep on your radar, one that’s been trending for the last couple of years and showing no signs of slowing down: chunky sole sandals. These lean more into the “ugly” footwear category and are arguably more comfortable than their stiletto-heeled counterparts—something that anyone who isn’t particularly a fan of a towering heel (AKA me) can appreciate.
Sandal season may seem like a distant dream for some of us—it’s currently snowing outside of my NYC apartment as I type this—but the fact is, spring will be here again before we know it. I like to get my seasonal shopping done ahead of time, so I went ahead and rounded up the 24 chunky sole sandals that are guaranteed to sell out by March. Keep scrolling to shop my picks before it’s too late.
