13 chunky dad sandals we love for spring: From M&S to ASOS & of course Birkenstocks

Catwalk-ready dad sandals right this way… 

Leanne Bayley

If you've been lusting over the Chanel dad sandals but can't quite justify the £1000 price tag, we've shopped the high-street for all the best chunky-soled sandals that look like they've come straight from the catwalk but without the splurge.

Dad sandals were scoffed at when the trend emerged back in 2015, but since then they've gained popularity - no doubt because they're hella comfy - and peaked when Chanel launched the cult famous sandals in 2018.

In fact, chunky summer sandals have become so popular that according to the Lyst 2021 report, Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals were the world's number one hottest shoe for women this year. Searches for the sandals spiked 225% and they sold out across many retailers. If you've yet to join the chunky shoe club, scroll down to pick your favourites...
