Bottega Veneta BV Lug Boots
Italian luxury brand, Bottega Veneta’s BV Lug Boots are a key component in the chunky boot trend. The iconic half-calf boot stacked with a lug sole transformed the way we wear a flat boot. These boots are well and truly an investment item, but we’re sure this trend will be sticking around for a while yet! Crafted from smooth leather Bottega Veneta has found the sweet spot between elegant and an omnipotent boot.
Bottega Veneta BV Tire Boots
For Aw’20 Bottega Veneta released a new addition— the BV Tire Boots. While still supporting the half-calf style and loops the tire boots have a little more pzazz. The updated take are set on transparent soles and traced with curving strips to excentrate a layered chunky sole effect. Released in varying colours with contrasting soles for all the statement you could need.

Dr. Martens x Marc Jacobs 1460 Boot
You could say that Dr Martens is the mother of all chunky boots. Originally a punk statement that trickled down into a fashionable trend has clearly influenced other brands. Dr Martens boots are still a treasured staple by many. Marc Jacobs has become the latest to team up with Dr Martens for the ongoing 1460 remastered release. Paying homage to Dr Martens wearers customisation of the boots over the years— Marc Jacobs has styled them with dazzling trinkets for maximum reckoning.
