Remember those circa 2004 days when all we wanted was those feminine, girly strap shoes on heels? As you might have guessed, these days are over. So even though chunky shoes are not a total newcomer in 2016 (think of Céline’s Phoebe Philo giving the Birkenstock a major comeback for SS13), the fashion world is going crazy about them, and that in all variations possible. Whether characterised by broad, often dark, straps or by XL platforms doesn’t matter – the main target is to incorporate a little bit of apocalypse into a fashion season that is otherwise marked by Alessandro Michele’s joie de vivre. From Alexander Wang over MM6 to Isabel Marant, we saw heavy, chunky shoes E-VER-Y-WHERE.
So in order to spare you the task of scanning the internet for the ideal model, we’ve thought ahead and taken care of it. Check out the gallery to see more of it!
