Stylish Lug Sole Shoes Under $100

By Wardrobeoxygen @wardrobe_oxygen

Last week I shared my picks of the best fall fashion trends, and I recommended buying a pair of lug-soled shoes for fall. The lug sole shoe is a hot trend this season, and a comfortable one at that. Looking great with jeans, dresses, trousers, and more, the lug sole shoe is an easy way to update your existing wardrobe for fall. Below I share my picks of lug sole shoes under $100 to embrace this trend.

What is a Lug Sole?

A lug sole is a thick rubber sole with deep indentations in a pattern designed to provide secure footing. Lug soles are often seen on work boots and give Dr. Martens their iconic style. Lug sole shoes are great for stability and comfort as well as on-trend style for the season.

Stylish Lug Sole Shoes Under $100

While I am a big fan of the lug sole trend and hope it sticks around for more than this season, I am hesitant to spend a lot on a trend its first season. Below I share several stylish lug sole shoes under $100 so you can try out this comfy and chic trend without breaking the bank.

Lug Sole Loafers Under $100

Most come in other colors or textures; this one for example has nine different colors. Lug sole loafers are an easy way to update your current wardrobe for fall. Pair with your ankle pants and jeans, or wider-leg menswear-inspired trousers and looser denim.

Lug Sole Oxfords and Brogues Under $100

Oxfords or brogues are harder to find under $100 but I found some chic styles that would be great for work or play. Like the lug sole loafers, these can be worn with most anything.

Lug Sole Warm-Climate Shoes Under $100

After the response I got from my article on fall fashion trends for warm climates, I had to share some lug sole shoes for those who live in the south and warmer locations! You're in luck, as lug soles were popular this summer and many styles in fall colors and fabrics are now on sale. However, many retailers have come out with lug sole slide versions of loafers for fall which look so chic with jeans and trousers. You can rock them all winter long while we'll have to store them for styles that can accommodate rain and show!

Lug Sole Pull-On and Chelsea Boots Under $100

With our new lifestyle, it's nice to have a boot that's easy to slip on and off when leaving the house. Whether it's running late to work or leaving the home to run errands, a pull-on or Chelsea-style lug sole boot will get plenty of wear this fall and still look classic enough to wear next year.

What Socks To Wear With Lug Sole Shoes?

A rule of thumb is if your ankles will show, don't have visible hosiery. A pair of no-see socks will keep you comfortable without ruining the line of your outfit. If your ankles are covered with longer pants, wear what feels comfortable. I've been wearing my Bombas wool hiking socks under my Doc Martens; they're long enough to protect my ankle and wick away moisture but don't peek out of the top of the boot.

Tights and patterned hosiery are back; if you are wearing lug soles with a dress or skirt a pair of opaque tights or a sheer black patterned stocking is on trend.

If you are one who loves creative hosiery, a trouser sock or dress sock in a fabulous pattern can add a lot to a look. However, this isn't for novices as proportion and pant length determine if you look polished or like Pee-Wee Herman. If your hosiery is showing between your hem and your lug sole shoe, it should be fitted and either match your shoe or be a contrast or print to complement your ensemble.
