10 Ways to Wear and Style Lug Sole Boots

Known for their durability and utilitarian style, lug sole boots are a fun way to shape-shift everything from your most basic to your hyper-feminine looks. Mavette elevates the lug sole beyond simple functionality, bringing a feminine touch to a silhouette that can toe the line between urban and rustic. Crafted from luxurious Italian leather or suede, our lug sole boots range from classic combat boots to refined knee-high styles that can transform everything from your basic jeans to hyper-feminine dresses. Seamlessly blending rugged practicality with refined taste, lug sole shoes are more than just a trend; they're a commitment to durability without compromising on sophistication. Let the lug sole become your next versatile wardrobe companion.

Understanding Our Different Styles

Mavette offers two uniquely different approaches to the lug sole boot. The most classic is the Aida boot, a combat-style ankle boot with a slim silhouette that has been designed to be worn everywhere. It comes in two Italian leather colorways, a pebbled black and a smooth ivory,  is cushioned from heel to toe with a padded insole, easy-entry side zipper, and leather laces.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Alberta boot is a knee-high lug boot made from water-resistant Italian stretch suede and is available in both classic black and a rich brown. Cushioned from heel to toe, it has an easy-entry side zipper and leather piping details, truly perfect for every calf size thanks to its unique built-in stretch.

Once you have picked the style that speaks most to you - or you splurge for both because you cannot choose - the ways to style a lug sole boot are endless. If you need some inspiration, here are ten of our favorites.

10 Ways to Style Lug Sole Boots


 Whether you’re on your way to or from a fitness class or just want to be comfortable, it doesn’t matter - this look combines athletic details with chic and walkable boots. Pair your favorite black leggings with a sherpa or denim jacket, and layer on the Alberta in black suede. This laidback look can take you from yoga to brunch to the farmer’s market without breaking a sweat.


When you need to run around the city and look the part, grab your favorite lug sole and get to work. A tailored blazer over a cashmere tank is perfect as the weather cools down. Depending on how dressed up, you can tuck your boots beneath a distressed boyfriend jean for a more casual look or put on a tailored pair of slim-fit trousers that match back to your blazer for something a bit more business appropriate.


Reach for the Alberta in brown and style them with a full, billowy midi skirt or dress. Bring on the layers by playing with texture - think a deliciously soft cashmere or an intriguing, chunky oversized sweater. Keep the tones earthy and autumnal and this look will take you from wine tastings to fireside hangs with ease.


Leather makes everything fashion-forward. Go tone on tone and pair the Alberta with whatever color leather you have, and have fun playing with the silhouette (you can easily wear leggings or a mini skirt here). On top, let your plans dictate the direction, and choose a supple knit, fitted bodysuit, or something with a fun drape to it.


Mavette’s lug sole boot options make travel days a breeze, thanks to their easy access side zip closures. Worn over leggings or under a dress, whatever comfortable airport outfit you travel in will be instantly elevated with either the Aida or Alberta. TSA will thank you for how quickly your boots come off and go on again, and getting in your steps if your flight is delayed will be super comfortable with fully padded insoles. Pair them with leggings or a dress, and stay super comfortable and stylish!


The pebbled black leather of the Aida boot is the star of this look. Pair it with slouchy denim and either a romantic off-the-shoulder knit or a semi-sheer black turtleneck with a statement earring for a chic, relaxed outfit.


The goal here is seaside-chic. A pair of jeans that have been well-loved and well-worn, a fisherman-style chunky knit worn over your favorite vintage tee, all topped with an oversized shearling coat and your biggest scarf - all you need to add is your choice of the Aida boot. 


A play on textures, a monochrome look, in this case, works best when you mix materials in the same color. Either color of Aida or Alberta works here. Pick your shoe and then have fun with building an outfit with pieces of the same color, the more luxurious the texture, the better: silks, satins, leathers, suedes, cashmere. 


Prairie girl gets a makeover when you add an edgy boot to it. As a sharp contrast to a sweetly feminine outfit, a lug sole boot keeps things from becoming cloying. Offset your paisleys, florals, or oversized collared dresses with a boot, choosing the Aida for a grunge effect or the Alberta for a luxe way to sneak in some extra warmth.


For a look that is fashion-forward, go for black on black and play with your silhouettes. One particular favorite? The black suede Alberta with a black silk mini skirt, a cashmere crewneck, sleek hair, a bold lip, and your biggest sunnies. You’ll turn sidewalks into runways and have everyone asking, “Where’d she get those boots?”
