I think “chunky” is the word I’m looking for here, no? And possibly the phrase “1974, represent!” These definitely have a late 60s/early 70s feel to them – in fact, I’m now feeling the urge to start using words like “groovy”, but I will resist – and I suspect that may divide opinion on them. For myself, well, I probably wouldn’t wear them, because I suspect my feet would look like boats in them (and I speak as someone who doesn’t even have particularly large feet), but I do enjoy looking at them – the silhouette is very bold, very different from the kind of shoes we’re used to seeing right now, and, I may as well say it, very groovy, baby. Or maybe not.
