Last year, Prada debuted its Monolith boots on the men’s and women’s Fall Winter runways. And while the concept of a chunky, thick-soled boot is not a new one, this utilitarian option seems to be the shoe that defined this season’s footwear mood for street style stars at New York Fashion Week.
It’s not hard to see why street style stars love them – New York saw a number of storms last week, and these platformed boots seem to be practically made for walking through puddles without drenching the feet.
From punky vibes with all-black and goth-inspired outfits to adorning them with delicate floral prints, the chunky boots have by far been one of the best styling accessories of the season, thanks to its versatility. Plus, for smaller girls – these boots are a great way to add some height without having to slip on a pair of heeled footwear.
Above and below, the street style stars for your styling inspiration, and where to get your own pair of chunky soled boots for your stomping pleasure.
