40 Super Chunky Shoes

From Twisted Coil Booties to High Heeled Army Boots

— July 5, 2010 — Fashion
Sometimes fashion changes so much, it's hard to keep pace--even if you're a devoted clothes horse like myself. Once, ultra-skinny stilettos were all the rage (and for many style mavens, still are), but fashion is paving a new road for large and in charge, super chunky shoes.

Not only is the clunky clog back, other forms of thick, chunky footwear are making their return from the 90s. Check out this cluster of super chunky soles--it includes everything from heeled army boots to fiercely high platforms!
