Are Lug Sole Boots in Style for 2021?

Should you get a pair?

If you’ve been wondering if lug sole boots are in style for fall 2021, here’s the quick answer: definitely.

Designers seem to have taken a liking to this style for autumn this year. We’ve seen it all over the runways of Ganni, Loewe, 31. Philip Lim, and Stella McCartney. Prada also has a utilitarian pair that has tiny pockets on the sides.

On the streets, the style’s been pretty popular too. I’m sure you’ve seen an influencer or two on Instagram wearing the coveted Bottega Veneta Lug leather ankle boots. 

Are you here for it? I sure am. Think of lug sole boots for fall 2021 as the complete opposite of the comfy slides we’ve been wearing for more than a year now. 

It only seems apt that we embrace something that’s a bit more structured and sturdy as we try to regain a bit of normalcy in this ongoing health crisis.

But more than the proverbial turn from what has become part of our daily lives, lug sole boots are actually the perfect shoes for autumn because they’re not only stylish but also quite practical.

The toothed rubber soles of these reliable pairs are great for withstanding rainy, cold weather and damp city streets. Most pairs are made with easy-to-clean materials too — just wipe them and go.

If you’re not ready to invest in a designer pair for an item that will definitely get wear and tear, the high street has lots of options that are just as stylish and functional and some can also last long with proper care.

Get ready to pick a pair or two from this selection of lug sole boots that will carry you through fall 2021 — and maybe even beyond.
