Hate the stubborn clothing trend – and embrace comfy sandals and slides that make it really stylish
For for years I have complained that people go out in public with their pajama pants and house shoes on. Since when is it going? How did we go from casual Fridays and sportswear to a simple walk to the grocery store in our jammies?
It’s been a constant slide, bringing a lot of people into what appears to be a complete surrender mode.
That’s why when I first noticed women wearing a cutting-edge new take on homemade slippers and over-the-top puffy, fuzzy slides, I thought it was a joke. It looked like fashion had waved the white flag and overturned. Like the designers shrugged their shoulders and just thought if you can’t beat them, join them.
Now I am on board. The world may be slowly emerging from its pandemic stretch pants, but at least we can get our feet wet. There is no need to punish them with strappy sandals and spiked heels just yet.
No other shoe trend is gaining more attention right now than ultra-cozy and comfortable sandals and slides. They are puffy and fluffy, so relaxed and super trendy this season.
Here’s where you can find them in Fort Worth (most are also available online):
