Flat Sandals – Here to Stay

We’re now 5 days deep into Fashion Week and out of all the new trends we’re seeing for Spring, an old familiar from last fall is still prevalent on the runways this season.  Thank Phoebe Philo for the furkenstock, which subsequently spawned an army of flat, ugly-in-a-good-way, comfortable sandals.

That’s right my friends, flat sandals are here to stay.

We’re seeing a hybrid between Adidas slides, Birkenstocks and Tevas evidenced by Suno, Helmut Lang, and Jason Wu to name a few endorsing the trend.

We’ve come around on the idea of flat shoes but the flat sandal, while extremely ubiquitous, is still puzzling.

Not to tire you with the conversation on ugly shoes, but these new collections have left me wondering if I’ll be hemming my trousers come spring.  While I can’t say for sure,  I can say that sandals are on sale now as summer has come to a close so an investment might be on the horizon.
