Let’s face it, the lug sole boot trend is the best thing to happen to fall and winter fashion. Toothy-like rubber soles that can actually withstand inclement weather and city sidewalks now line the bottoms of most of fall’s most stylish boots, and this Ganni pair makes for one of the most practical It items of the cold-weather season—along with puffer coats, balaclavas, and this season’s Prada gloves. Who said fashion couldn’t be functional?
Crafted with 50% recycled scraps, the entire boot is actually made of rubber—giving it a utilitarian feel that’s totally weatherproof without compromising its design aesthetic. And what sets these apart from other basic rain booties and Chelsea boots on the market is all in the details. There are classic elastic side-panel details, but the color options are what really give this boot its panache.
It’s offered in two-tone colorways and monochrome options—from white to pink—with a contrasting cap toe, heel, and pull-on tabs. It all makes for a great-looking boot you might forget is meant to be stomped and splashed around in.
And at $245, these leather boot alternatives feel like a steal. Ahead, a lugged sole boot so good, you’ll want one in every color.
