The loafer has been a go to best seller for Gucci for decades. I love this update to the classic horse bit buckle shoe. The platform gives it character, and the heels are in balance. A totally walkable shoe, for sure.
This pair, also from Gucci, features their interlocking G Horse bit buckle. The soft rounded shape is now, yet timeless.
Louis Vuitton features a shoe update to fall lug sole boots, logo derbys. Sensible yet chic. Good for all the long walks you should be taking.
The heels on this pair of loafers are built to mimic the LV logo. Add the logo buckle and you find your sole mate for spring right here.
Fendi offers a very cool loafer as well. A mid height sling back loafer with chunky sculptural heels is new. And it looks like white is one of the go to colors for the season.
Chloe’s cool loafer has laser cuts to make the leather look knitted or woven. This is perfect spring shoe.
Incorporating woven leather and some tough embellishment, this pair is a nice hybrid shoe. Thank you Phillip Lim.
The Bottega Veneta shoe is not a proper loafer, as it has kitten heels. It does do a good job of lifting the loafer to a higher standard. All of these shoes are tweaked classics that are keepers.
Miu Miu sneakers make an impact. They have a little bit of bling and a lot of sole. Sneakers, or trainers, are not going away any time soon. As our lives go casual, so does our footwear.
Another pair of Miu Miu sneakers has more sparkle and is sleeker. Meant for the customer who doesn’t love the chunky sneaker, this pair will get you around in shiny style.
Gucci embraces metallics with this glittering pair. The print contrasts nicely against the lame. A comfortable, but not chunky sneaker for sure.
Chanel offers a toned down metallic look, that is sturdy and sporty.
Fendi takes the chunky clunky route with this multi-color pair. The plaid laces are a perfect touch to tie it all together. And unisex too.
I must admit that I am a fan of Dior Men. I would wear these in a heartbeat in my size. Sneakers don’t have a gender.
Here is another pair of Dior Men’s sneakers that are perfect. An interesting design but not OTT.
Here are a few of the famous Vuitton Archlight sneakers. Chunky to the max. I wonder if you bounce when you walk in these?
Vuitton also does the chunky sneaker with molded soles that are less contorted than the Archlight. A colorful pair.
This last pair of LV kicks are more down to earth. They are simpler and almost have a preppy look, which is refreshing.
Here is a new version of the coveted Triple S with a clear sole from Balenciaga. The Triple S was original chunky, clunky sneaker.
The newest Balenciaga is the Track. There is a lot going on in this shoe. The Balenciaga fans will not doubt flock to buy it.
When one sees a Louboutin shoe, one doesn’t normally think of restraint. This beautifully classic with a twist sneaker is a Louboutin.
This shoe is has more of a Louboutin vibe. The spikes, and the glitzy logo canvas sit well together. And offer comfort with style in spades.
Fall statement footwear featured boots. Chunky boots. Those boots have been updated for spring. These beaded, studded lace-ups from Louboutin mix tough with chic.
These Zadig and Voltaire boots stand out with their studded panels.
Vuitton’s spring combat boots are sweetened with pastel colors.
Miu Miu endorses lace up heeled boots that hark back to the early 20th century. The wild print livens them up and makes them 20th century boots.
The same boot also looks great in solid patent leather
Dior lover tough chic too. The laser cut-outs provide some breathing room and style.
Not all boots are clunky. This sleek pair from Phillip Lim is like an ankle boot coupled with a loafer. It’s a great look.
Gucci goes sleek too with these cool updates to the chelsea boot.
Fenty, Rihanna’s fashion venture, loves relaxed gold foil bots with a slim heel. Chic with attitude.
Chanel offers a great boot in a variety of fabrics. The tweed ones are more on brand, but the mesh ones certainly make a cool statement.
Gucci loves boots with heels too. This pair hits the spot with the stitched pleats tied around the ankles. You will make a statement when you don this pair.
