The ever so popular chunky sneakers show no signs of slowing down as we enter a new decade. 2020 introduces a wealth of new designs, silhouettes and technical detailing in a bid to add fresh new energy to the oversaturated trend.

While the Balenciaga Triple S will always be on the top of my chunky sneaker wish list, my bank account has other plans for how I spend my money this year. So instead, I am opting for the cheaper alternative from the high street.

Where can I buy the best chunky sneakers this season?


The latest sneaker from Zara takes the running sneaker to new heights. The sneaker features a knitted upper detail with pull tabs on the tongue and at the back. The sole is bold and features a unique design in a contrasting colour.
