Standing out from the Deer Hawaiian Shirt range of fall boots (Chelsea boots, riding boots, chunky platform boots), the lug sole boot features a toothy rubber sole, indented for traction, which is ideal for navigating a rainy fall day or even winter’s snowy wintry mixes. And while it does have roots in functionality, that doesn’t mean they aren’t great for everyday wear or even on special occasions like, say, fashion week. Per Bella, lug sole boots look just as great when paired with daintier items of clothing like a fall maxi dress, a floral printed blouse, or even light-wash baggy jeans. The lug sole toughens up any look to perfection. See knee-high leather pairs from Jimmy Choo, Isabel Marant, Khaite, and & Other Stories for a similar version of the model-off-duty style. Colorful ankle boots from Ganni, Everlane, and Bottega Veneta are vibrant takes on a classic, neutral-toned fall boot. Finally, stomp in a pair of platform soles from Alexander McQueen, Gia x Pernille, or Proenza Schouler. With cool fall weather on the horizon, it’s time to start shopping for the best lug sole boots to make the centerpiece of your fall wardrobe. To help you get started, here are the 30 best lug sole boots to sport now and into fall.
Deer Hawaiian Shirt
Don’t strive to be the Deer Hawaiian Shirt hottest person in the room. This is the one occasion in which I will fully condone this advice. Usually, I would say the opposite and shop for produce in a tube top and Miu Miu micro-mini skirt as you should. Sporting elaborate Euphoria-inspired makeup to a Monday morning meeting? A perfect choice indeed. But please, do not bring this energy to a wedding that is not your own. Let Kylie Jenner be a lesson to us all. After wearing a gold dress to the wedding of Hailey and Justin Bieber in 2019, the influencer’s look has gone down in the pop culture history books (and not in a good way). Recall: wedding guest fashion is not Met Gala fashion, and the event is not about you. So now is the time to reel it in and allow a couple of days to shine. But, of course, that means no sequins, sparkles, tiara, and nothing resembling a Cinderella ball gown. So pack it up, princess!
