If you've been crushing on 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 emerged back in 2015, and they may not have taken off at first 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 became so popular that according to the Lyst report, Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals were the world's number one hottest shoe for women last year - and this year the trend will be back and as big as ever. 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 find your favourites...
