The comfiest boot trend for 2022 | Womens chunky sole boots AKA Lug sole boots
Chunky boots and chunky platform boots were a massive trend last year and lug sole boots are here to stay for 2022. Chunky sole boots AKA lug sole boots are everywhere from the runway to the high street to Instagram. As much as I’m a higher the heel the better kind of girl I can still appreciate this edgy, cool girl, functional fashion and boot trend. Men and women’s chunky sole boots are a great for Fall, Winter and transitional season style. So I definitely expect them to stick around for Spring 2022. If you’re looking for a city or country walking boot or taking a break from your heels these are what to do it in. Designers like Ganni, Bottega Veneta and Prada have released some of the best chunky sole boots this year that are ultra practical but cool. It doesn’t matter if they’re lug sole Chelsea boots, embellished with edgy gold buckles, white chunky sole boots, chunky black boots, rubber knee highs, chunky heel boots or Prada lug sole boots. It’s all about the tough chunky silhouette whether they’re flat or a heel.
Why are chunky boots so popular
The beauty of womens chunky sole boots is that they go with pretty much everything and it’s not just chunky black boots that are in fashion for 2022. Bright colors like white, red, orange and green were all over the Spring Summer runway shows. Style flat, chunky heel or platform boots with your sweater dresses and tights, leggings or skinny jeans. They’re one of those versatile boots that work so well for everyday. If you’re looking for the most practical version, go for a waterproof boot you can splash around in the puddles and to avoid being Bambi on ice in the snow.
What’s a Lug Sole boot?
It’s what most of us are just calling a chunky sole but a lug sole is defined by the material, depth and width of the ridges. Lug sole boots are meant to be practical, stable, give traction and stand up to the snow. So they should be made of rubber and the indentations need to be deep to give enough grip. There’s no specific measurement and a lot of lug boots don’t call them that in their description so if you’re not sure but like them, that’s all that matters.

A lot of these chunky black boots ship really quickly. So if you’re looking for a last minute gift or going to visit family back East, Europe or going to a ski resort there’s still time to order.
Ganni is not only one of the leaders of the womens chunky sole boots trend (along with Prada, Dior and Bottega Veneta) but does one of the most affordable designer pairs. Their rubber lug sole chunky Chelsea boots are on sale for under $150! The Prada chunky sole boots come in both black and white. They’re more expensive but they’re a bit less clunky, smarter and more stylish. They don’t have to be flat, chunky heel boots are also in style for 2022.
Neutral & chunky white sole boots
White flat or chunky platform boots look so fresh and crisp. Even though it’s not one trend I’m personally jumping on. If I was, it would be the white Prada Monolith boot. I love the cute little purse on the ankle and bright white color. They’re giving me total ski lodge vibes and if I was going to the Christmas markets in Europe it would probably be in these or the black Versace safety pin lace up boots that are on sale.
