I’ve always viewed sports sandals as a necessary evil; on the practical side, they’re great for athletes and for putting on in a moment’s notice when you have to run and errand. On the other hand, these pair of shoes was reluctantly adopted by mankind after all the other stylish shoes hijacked the fashion gene from the footwear game.
But guess what? Like a Kardashian they’ve undergone a facelift and are the ‘it’ shoe for both men and women. They slowly started to creep onto the fashion scene last year appearing in designer runway shows and showing up in the pages of magazines. I saw a few people sport (pun intended) on the streets, but they’ve now hit the mainstream full blown. For the longest while I’ve been putting off succumbing to their world domination but I’m now a convert. Can you believe it?
If not, then let me introduce you to two pairs that will east your transition into this trend. For the ladies, you’ll like the Lisa Lo by United Nude; this sporty yet minimalistic number is versatile for casual and dressy occasions.
For the men, the Mustache Slides by Hunter Boots adhere to the masculine aesthetics of the traditional sport sandal but with a hit of colour and streamlined shape. And you know the best part? These shoes are part of Shopbop’s and Eastdane’s spring sale. Can we say “Time to shop?” You better act quickly because the sale ends in just a few days.
