So, we heard you like chunky shoes. If you're anything like us, you're probably head-over-heels in love with that heinous, uneasy feeling you get when you realize that you actually want that meme-able pair of gargantuan clogs. Call clunky stompers ugly if you will, but you have to agree that they wield a visual power that no skinny sandal will ever offer.

In the interest of indulging your chunky footwear fixation, we've rounded up 11 pairs that you'll want to add to cart, stat. This list covers everything from alien boots and doll clogs to benign, thick-soled sandals and loafers that could rival a tractor. Scroll through at your own risk. 

Without further ado, here–11 irresistible pairs to shop for your chunky shoe obsession: 

1. Suicoke Kisee-V Sandals 

Suicoke is a cult fave Japanese brand renowned for their toothy, thick-strapped sandals. Our suggestion: If you want to cop this particular white pair, make sure to start collecting socks in funky colors to go with it.

2. Gucci Rubber Slide

Admit it—your childhood Barbie had shoes like this that you had to stop yourself from eating. We don't blame you, though. This demure, potent pink looks a bit too much like candy, and that, along with the chunky enough shape, is what makes this Gucci pair so alluring.

3. The Attico Flat Thong

This inventive slipper from relative newcomer The Attico looks like a cross between lingerie and and a car tire, and it's a total win, thank you very much. Audacious, confusing shoes are the best kinds of shoes. Wear this with a long cami dress for maximum impact.

4. Bottega Veneta Leather Platform Chelsea Boots

This mad boot from the very au courant Bottega Veneta takes us back to when we realized this valuable tidbit: Villains in cartoons always had the best wardrobes. The curvy, flame-shaped sole of this high boot is impossible to resist, and that shade of green is utterly divisive and powerful. What's not to love?

6. United Nude Delta Wedge Sandal 

Radical shoe brand United Nude was founded by Rem D. Koolhaas, a Dutch architect, and the shoes reflect that commitment to intelligent composition. In fact, this pair is vaguely threatening—it dares you to try it on. It's a fashion statement in every regard.

Next up, we have this fetching watergun-esque sneaker from Balenciaga. The Triple S comes in a variety of colorways, but we're particularly drawn to the honeyed hues of this pair in beige leather. We would wear this to death!

10. Jacquemus Les Sabots

These heavy ship clogs from Jacquemus guarantee an unsinkable OOTD. Wear it with flared blue jeans, a gold-buckled belt, and anything with '70s-inspired prints. So unapologetically groovy.

11. Crocs Platform Clogs

Ah, Crocs. This list wouldn't feel complete without them. We uniroinically love the platform iteration now, and wouldn't mind hoarding Jibbitz as well. The fashion cycle is so fickle and thrilling all the same!
