The Chunky Boot Obsession

It began with my beloved studded Romwe boots, then spread to another Romwe pair (this time laced) and has resulted in this gorgeous Chelsea boot-styled number from Topshop. Being very petite and often a sufferer of very sore feet while wearing flat soles, chunky platform boots like this are a godsend.

Don't be mistaken by their height, each pair is incredibly comfortable and easy to walk in. They also do not look or feel clumpy at all, even with more delicate looking outfits. I like to wear all of these casually (dressed up on certain occasions too, though) but I do feel like the Topshop pair are a little more sophisticated looking, with the laced pair being on the opposite end of the spectrum, and the spiked pair a happy medium.

Being a black boot they do go with almost any outfit you could imagine, and provide a high level of comfort with that bonus height. You may see that my studded pair are suffering, they've been worn constantly for six months and now need resoled at the front!

If you don't own a chunky pair of black boots, what are you doing? Go try a pair on, you may be pleasantly surprised. And for those of you who share my growing obsession, let's not feel bad if we feel like buying yet another pair, okay? They are so versatile. As least, that's what I will keep telling myself.

P.S. And why not tell me what you would choose to wear with any of these boots? I always love getting outfit suggestions!


  1. I love big black chunky boots! Such a lovely post!

  2. These are quite possibly my favourite type of shoe! I love silver studded items, I probably own far too many pairs of black boots too!

    I like to wear these type of boots if I want a dress to look more casual, and I suppose not so girly looking!

    Love the blog, i'm now a new subscriber! :)

    1. I have my eye on so many more pairs, it's a problem! Oh yes, they're the perfect way of adding a bit more of an edge to an outfit, I don't like looking too girly girly. And thank you so much! I had a look and gave you a 'lil follow back ^_^

  3. =O I actually own the Topshop pair and I've worn them with every single outfit I can possibly put them with!

    I love wearing them with those little frilled ankle socks so it's like Chunky heel with girly filled sock but not too much girlyness, haha =D Plus I love wearing it with an A-line skirt or black skinnies and an oversized blazer...OMG I wear them with everything -.- pmsl!

    Great blog! Whilst my stupid computer is making me post Anonymously I will be becoming a new subscriber when I can :p

    1. Haha, I wear them with everything too! I'm trying to branch out now that we've got hot weather, but it's difficult. I love wearing them with frilly socks, it looks so cute ^_^ And thank you sweets!

  4. what are the sizes of those chunky boots? I am also obsessed with chunky soles boots however, I got big feet. I already found size 8 online but I am afraid if this is right for my feet.

  5. These are all a size 3 - the Topshop ones are true to size, and I'd say the Romwe two are juuuust slightly roomy. They don't slip or anything, but they're quite wide in the foot for my narrow feet. So, I think you'd be fine with any of these pairs!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment - I read every single one and reply as quickly as I can, so be sure to check back!
