Chunky Sneaker at JmksportShops
Thick soles, eye-catching designs and wild color combos - hardly any other sneaker has been as hyped in recent years as the chunky sneaker. And that's despite (or perhaps harper) so many consider the Ugly Shoes to be anything but beautiful. We celebrate the chunky kicks not only for their comfort, but also harper they simply make a cool statement piece.
Chunky sneaker - the shoe with the chunky sole
The chunky sneaker is a sporty shoe that is characterized by one thing in particular: a thick, partly futuristic platform sole. Eye-catching colorways, colorful stitching and laces as well as a mix of suede, mesh and co. make the kick a real eye-catcher that not only looks exceedingly casual, but is also maximally comfortable thanks to the chunky sole.
Another positive side effect: On feet, the sneaker visually lengthens the leg - thanks to the extra centimeters of the sole. This makes styles and outfits look completely different. Especially as a style break to the business look or as a color statement with any Favorite, sneaker heads reach for the chunky kick.
However, this trend is not new. Like so many hip fashion Sandalen, the chunky sneaker has its origins in the flashy nineties. But there, like the dad shoe, it was worn primarily for one reason: comfort - and not as a fashion statement. Even today, not everyone is a fan of the chunky runner, which is why it is also known as the Ugly Sneaker.
So after ridicule and gloating, the chunky sneaker made its big comeback in the late 2010s. The pioneer was the French designer brand Balenciaga, which really got the ball rolling with the Triple S in 2017. Since then, Ugly Fashion has conquered the catwalks and streets of the big cities, so that even the major sneaker manufacturers are releasing more and more models of the retro classic with the special look. A former fashion no-go becomes a go-to - a trend that speaks against the classic fashion image, instead working with nostalgia and promising more reality.
