Fashion Week trend alert: lug soles

Posted on

Here’s how three designers employed the utility boot trend in their Fall-Winter 2013 shows.


At Carven, Guillaume Henry showed lug-soled boots in a few variations to match the industrial meets pretty-in-pink vibe of his collection. Delicate ankle strap shoes with a chunky sole were also matched by patent shoes with more of a hiking boot feel, and the colors matched the clothes, along with a marbled inverted zebra print. Another variation came with a contrasted upper of satin, bandaging the foot.

Stella’s models tottered on super-chunky platform heels with a lug sole. The shoes came in black, white and beige faux leather finishes in two models, one with a zip up the back, the other a slip-on.

Miuccia Prada’s lug-soled boots came either in all black or with a splash of color in the form of a bright faux-spats detail. Utility soles also appeared on thicker ankle strap heels worn with striped socks.
