A lug sole is a thick shoe sole with deep indentations, or lugs, designed to improve traction and stability. Lug soles are most frequently found in utility and outdoor footwear, such as work boots and hiking boots. Lug soles are generally made of synthetic rubber and can have many different patterns of indentation depending on the type of surface and conditions for which they are intended.
Hush Puppies Authentic Lug Pleasant Surprise

Reviewer: Charles from Washington, DC
The shoes initially seemed shockingly light and flimsy; the insoles seemed attached with a dab of glue that quickly came loose. I was tempted to return them, but decided to stick it out, and they've held up.

Hush Puppies Brogue Lug Great shoes

Reviewer: Chris from DC Hush Puppies did a fine job capturing an earlier age in these shoes. The look, feel, fit and comfort are all outstanding, and I was happy to finally find a wide shoe on shoebuy.com - they're often short such options. These are terrific for weekend wear, with a uniqe color and tone highlighted by the off-white lug soles and white laces. I highly recommend them as a casual Friday/weekend option. Great shoes.
