Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 finds on their current wish list.
I’ve harped on and on about how my style always veers more toward classic looks: ballet flats, classic gold jewelry, the list goes on. So when a trend hits, I take longer to pick it up (if I even do at all). This season? That trend is chunky shoes, specifically chunky-soled boots. Going from the softer silhouette of a ballet flat or loafer to a chunky and heavy shoe felt like a huge change for me, but there was something about it that kept making me rethink the trend. TBH, they remind me of the platform, extra-chunky shoes I used to wear in the '90s and early '00's, specifically from Steve Madden.
I had a change of heart while I was scouring the internet for a pair of winter boots and landed on this pair. Sure, they're not the exact definition of a lug sole, but the heel is a solid block and a nice transition for me into the world of chunky-sole shoes. What makes shopping for a trend I'm still testing easier is that I can use Shop Pay’s installments feature in partnership with Affirm, for a flexible and transparent way to pay later for whatever I'm shopping for. All I have to do is select Shop Pay at checkout and choose to pay in 4 installments. Best of all, paying later won’t impact my credit score, is interest-free and has no hidden fees. So from thick block heels to a true lug sole (and even a few sneakers), these are the 25 under-$150 pairs I have my eye on for when I'm ready to take the plunge.
I've seen pairs similar to these white mock-crock embossed boots all over my IG feed, and I have to say, these are perfect to wear with a shorter skirt and a blazer with a pair of opaque tights.
With Shop Pay, get them for four interest-free payments of $28.73
