With track-sole boots becoming virtually ubiquitous last winter, it was only a matter of time before the chunky-sole trend infiltrated other types of footwear.

The Italian fashion house launched logo-embellished chunky loafers in 2020, garnering the attention of models and influencers including Elsa Hosk, Pernille Teisbæk and more. (The coveted style has since sold out across multiple platforms.)
