The Ugly {Sexy} Sandals

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? πŸ™‚

So what do you think of this trend? Would you wear them or maybe skip this trend?

    Oh my land. Those sandles in the top picture…I remember when they were popular like ten plus years ago and people used to wear them with socks. I was so glad when I never saw them again. Why are they a thing?!
