Chunky Heels, Shoes, Sandals, Boots and Sneakers for Women

It looks like the ugly shoe trend is not going anywhere. In fact, we’re now seeing it extend its reach into heels, which have long been dominated by sexy styles. Stilettos have morphed into thick blocks, platforms have grown industrial lug soles and slinky straps are heavily burdened with buckles, studs, and other metal doodads.

If you’ve already embraced ugly shoes, then scroll through for eight ways to pull off this new look of clunky, chunky high-heel sandals. If you haven’t, then check out how awesome they look on top trendsetters like Gigi Hadid and Irina Shayk. That should dispel any fears you might have on experimenting with this trend.

8 Easy Ways to Wear Clunky, Chunky High-Heel Sandals Like a Celebrity

1. Wear with a sparkly dress like Gigi Hadid

When wearing a sparkly dress, feel free to bypass pretty, princess-y heels and go straight to clunky sandals. The contrast between the two totally works, as demonstrated by fashion’s favorite model-of-the-moment, Gigi Hadid, with a pair of Versace “Medusa” tri-strap platform sandals.

2. Pair with comfy shorts and a cute sweatshirt like Nina Dobrev

Shake up your favorite shorts and sweatshirt combo! That’s what Nina Dobrev did with a cute printed set and a pair of Stuart Weitzman “Fourbucks” sandals.

3. Toughen up a revealing crop top and miniskirt outfit like Hailey Baldwin

Feeling way too exposed in a crop top or a miniskirt (or both)? Balance out the look with a heavy-duty pair of chunky Versace platform heels like Hailey Baldwin. The 19-year-old model also wisely carried a jacket with her to add or remove coverage as she pleased.

4. Nail the sexy military chic aesthetic like Bella Thorne

Another Versace platform sandal lover, Bella Thorne tried a military-inspired look with her pair and absolutely nailed it.

5. Add some pep to a casual denim jumpsuit ensemble like Emma Roberts

Subtle wedge heels and a high-shine metallic silver hue on her Loeffler Randall “Pia” sandals elevated Emma Roberts’ casual shopping outfit to a whole ‘nother level.

6. Make like a model a la Irina Shayk

Okay, this one’s a little tricky. We’re not saying you have to have Irina Shayk’s looks to pull off the ugly shoe trend, but it certainly helped the supermodel get away with wearing lug-soled Versace heels to a high-profile modeling gig.

The 30-year-old also seems to be very well-versed in the trend. She was seen effortlessly pulling off the lower-heeled version of the Versace sandals. She utilized a flash of skin and some peekaboo lace on black jumpsuit to excellent results.

7. Anchor a floaty, feminine frock like Jaimie Alexander

Jaimie Alexander kept her ultra-feminine look grounded with a pair of Stuart Weitzman “Fourbucks” sandals.

8. Try a ’90s goth babe look like Lily Aldridge

Lily Aldridge looked so retro ’90s in her chain-strapped LBD, dark lipstick, and Alexander Wang “Sandrah” studded flatforms — and we’re heavily digging it.
