Now Fixating

Lug Sole Heeled Boots

Okay, so lug soles aren’t exactly new. The trend popped up a few years ago adding a tough-chic vibe to footwear, but it wasn’t until I saw more recent iterations on boots that I really got on board. (Thanks Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Dsquared…). The new takes are more hiker/combat boot than previous styles; which I love.

The key detail for me is the heel: I’m looking for a tall, block heeled version. I don’t want a tapered heel (too prissy), too fat a heel (kinda gothy) or a low heel (too casual. And I already own a pair). Other must-haves are a distinct lug sole and streamlined details like lace hooks, eyelets or buckles.

Here are the ones I am currently obsessing over so you can see what I mean:

lug sole, platform boot, lace up boot, combat boot, track sole boot

left to right: Louis Vuitton, Prada, Dsquared, Zara (from last year and sold out everywhere.. otherwise I would already own them because they are perfect)

Stay tuned! I am determined to find the perfect pair without breaking the bank since Canadian winters are hard on footwear.
