Ah, the “lug sole”! It’s the name the fashion world has given to that chunky, heavy-treaded rubber platform that started to crop up on footwear a year or so ago, and, like so many other aspects of the fashion world, it’s something of a “grower”: the first few times I saw one of these soles on a shoe I thought it looked very out of place, but these days? These days I actually quite like it: go figure!
These Rock & Republic shoes have more than just the sole for me to like, however: I’m also rather keen on the bright pink suede uppers, and the curved side, which helps offset the chunkiness of the platform.
What do you think of them?
