There has been a lot of buzz lately about the trend of the Ugly sandals. I first saw them via Instagram on The Zoe Report when they posted the below photo of Teva’s.
When I saw the picture scroll back I had to scroll back up because two things 1) I didn’t think it came from the Zoe Report and 2) I thought maybe it was an April Fool’s Joke. But, this is no joke. It’s not just Teva’s, it’s Birkenstocks too. As I find more and more designers like Marc Jacobs, Prada, Zara , Rebecca Minkoff and many more, have their version of this ugly sandals.
Now, I am all for comfort, and there is no denying that these all look completely comfortable, but I just can’t get past the fact that they remind me so much of the faux pas of the Pacific Northwest. I.E. “Socks and Sandal guy.”
Lets pretend I would hop on this trend I think the only option would be a pair of Birkenstocks, but I don’t know.
I guess the style of the PNW has rubbed off, maybe they had it right all along? 🙂
So what do you think of this trend? Would you wear them or maybe skip this trend?
