Are These Stuffed Animals or Just Really Fluffy Shoes On Our Feet?
Doesn't matter as long as they look fly AF. Plus, half of these are actually sweaty weather-friendly.| July 20, 2017
Is it too early to start shopping for fall? Never. Not that weather has really ever stopped us from wearing or shopping for what we wanted. Kids, as long as you set your mind to it, you can convince yourself that the weather isn’t as bad as it seems. That, or just take it on your chin and bear it in the name of vanity.
For some strange reason – well, not so strange considering that the pre-fall collections are starting to roll out – we’re noticing the resurfacing of furry and feathery kicks. Now, furry shoes have been around for a while thanks to Gucci and that formidable fur-lined backless loafer. Prada’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection was punctuated with feather slippers and Miu Miu has never backed down from popping in a shearling pump or two, no matter rain, shine or snow.
But, considering the horrendous weather we’re having, fluffy shoes seem like a bad idea…right? No. For one, most of the fluffy shoes we’re seeing take the form of slippers and sandals. Even the shearling. So that’s one small step for sweaty summer feet, and one giant leap for ventilation. For two – who says you have to stick to an entire shoe covered with fluff? Tassels and pom-poms qualify! They’re fluffy enough. If all else fails, there’s always velvet. We can’t think of a better transitional shoe that’ll help you walk straight into pre-fall looking flawless like your dreams. (Please tell me you’ve seen that viral video or this reference would be pointless.)
