Chunky Sneakers are at the pinnacle of modern shoe fashion.
The name refers to all sneakers with a bulky appearance, such as an abnormally thick sole, a large upper, or a lot of overlays. Another advantage is that the thick sole is designed for comfortable walking.
Nike Air Force 1 Shadow (Metallic Copper)
The Nike Air Force 1 Shadow is the coolest silhouette. In 1982, Nike introduced the Air Force 1. Nike has not only launched several hues but also multiple versions of the classic, like the Shadow, since its first introduction. The Shadow features two overlays that add extra shadow.’ The top of this pair is made of leather, and practically all of the components are white.
New Balance W MR530SG (White & Grey)
The New Balance 530, one of the most anticipated trainers of 2023, also makes our list. The bulky trainer has a classic design with the colors white and dark blue. The sneaker also sports a mesh top with leather accents. The silver accents on the toe and heel give the shoe a retro feel.
VEJA Venturi is a sustainable and environmentally beneficial product. This shoe also boasts a thick outsole and an upper composed of B-mesh (100% recycled plastic bottles) with water-repellent suede and TPU overlays.
Since 2005, VEJA has been uniquely creating shoes by merging social causes, economic fairness, and environmentally friendly materials. The business employs organic cotton from Brazil and Peru for the canvas and laces, Amazonian rubber for the soles, and a variety of unique materials such as recycled plastic bottles.
Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Move (Black)
The legendary Chuck Taylor All-Star has been given a contemporary makeover. The iconic toe box supports the sturdy canvas upper. The strong but dynamic design offers a futuristic appearance.
PUMA Mayze (White/ Black)
The PUMA Mayze is for the hype females, street aficionados, and trendsetters. The shoe boasts a clean, substantial appearance, as well as a big platform sole. The top is made of leather and suede, and the sole adds substantial flair with its many parts.
adidas Ozweego (Cloud White)
The massive Adidas Ozweego sneaker blends the late-90s and early-00s design with futuristic elements. This hefty sneaker’s upper is constructed of mesh, suede, and TPU. Cushioning that is targeted gives a pleasant sensation.
Converse Run Star Motion (White)
We continue with a more eye-catching sneaker: the Converse Run Star Motion in ‘White’. The shape features whimsical and twisted contours as well as a CX foam midsole. This model will look great with a variety of outfits from your closet.
adidas FORUM Bonega
The Adidas Forum originally appeared in 1984. It has been difficult to picture the streetwear industry without the model since 2021, and the silhouette is now more popular than ever. The quality leather top and big platform sole are trademark elements of this design.
PUMA Cali Dream Ivy League
The suede top of the California beach-inspired Cali shoes is padded, as is the lace-up closure and ankle collar. The iconic PUMA logo appears as well.
New Balance CT302 (White Moonbeam)
Let’s begin our selection of chunky trainers with the New Balance CT302, a style that is now highly popular. To create a modern silhouette, the shoe mixes a traditional design with an on-trend chunky outsole. The leather upper of the trainers ensures durability and comfort.
Nike WMNS Air Jordan 1 Mid
Whether you consider yourself a sneakerhead or not, you’ve probably heard of the Nike Dunk, one of the most famous styles in sneaker history. The Grey Sail hue is a timeless but fashionable option for adding to your collection or investing in your first pair. Furthermore, as Yip points out, they have the appearance and feel of the Nike Dior collaboration but at a far lower price range.
