Apparently we are all going to be wearing them. I am talking about, “looks like Grandpa’s from Kmart” kind of shoes. Except more sparkly and in more rad colours.
I am teetering on the fence with this one. I saw these feature in some of the autumn collections on a few online stores I frequent (their autumn, our spring, yeah?), and then again when I was wandering through my local shopping centre this week. But I just don’t know.
Part of me, the part which “yippeeees” with delight at the latest and greatest craze, kind of loves this, and is urging me to go and purchase the bright blue pair I saw during my shopping stroll.
The other part of me is picturing an Emperor’s New Clothes kind of scenario – where I am blissfully strolling the streets in my way cool slipper loafers, the coolest new shoe there is, and everyone is whispering and laughing at me, until some plucky kid proclaims “Ah, why are you wearing your grandpa’s old slippers???”
Who am I kidding? I love a new craze.
I am getting tired of ballet flats anyway, and this means I can (kind of) wear pyjamas in public.
