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 person. 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 shows 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 fond of towering heels 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 that 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 best pairs of chunky-sole sandals that are guaranteed to sell out by March. Keep scrolling to shop my picks before it’s too late.
