Why are the chunky sole trainers so popular? It could be due to the ugly nature of the design, from the multilateral elements to the exaggerated chunky sole, it’s hard not to see the beauty in the beast. Like a mother with an ugly child, you have no choice but to love it.
The king of the chunky sneaker is without a doubt the Balenciaga Tripe S, but am I the only one that doesn’t want to fork out £600 for sneakers? While I still envy people on the street wearing them, I am comfortable with the fact that the high street has affordable alternatives to carry me through this trend.
Here are my favourite chunky sole trainers you can buy from the high street.
PATCHWORK OF COLOUR
Try a combination of clashing colours to ensure your chunky trainers are the centre of attention.
PULL AND BEAR
Simple and clean with a plain colour palette perfect for creating contrast with your outfit.
BREAK THE BANK
Shun the affordability and invest in a high priced chunky sole trainer.
