So, what do you think? Are these heels Hot or Not?

We’ve seen plenty of chunky heels and they’re cute, but there’s a new trend brewing that we’re not so sure about: chunky soles. And we don’t mean the thick tread that you see on hiking boots. The look appeared first with avante garde labels like in the Maison Martin Margiela pumps you see above.
