At one point or another, we’ve all felt like the odd man out. Everyone else seems to agree that something is great, and you just don’t know what you’re missing. I’m here to say that it’s okay to feel this way–in fact, it’s more than okay. Even this fashion writer can’t get on board with some of the most gushed-about shoes of the season.
Last year, it was Birkenstocks (in case you were wondering, my negative feelings are still the same), and this year, I can’t get on board with flat platform sandals. I try to keep an open mend about new styles and trends, and I always try to imagine new trends blending into my wardrobe in some way. For example, while last year’s androgynous slides may not fit into my personal style, I am quickly becoming a fan of the dressed up slides we talked about a few weeks ago
I’m always a supporter of comfortable footwear, but no matter how comfortable everyone tells me flatforms, are I will be shallow and say the aesthetic of the shoe is enough to keep me away.
With so many footwear trends happening right now, are there any you just aren’t into?
