We have had a few sunny days (albeit cold) but it got us thinking about wearing this season’s hottet footwear – the footbed sandal. It just so happens that not only do these slider style sandals look stylish, they are also incredibly comfortable. Win win!
Footbed styles are everywhere, with high end designers Joseph, Michael Kors and Chloe getting in on the action, as well as a host of stylish celebs. Miley Cyrus reportedly has no fewer than five versions of the slides Celine sent down the catwalk in autumn last year.
If you’re desperate to start wearing your slides as soon as possible, they’re not just confined to the beach.
Take inspiration from Joseph and team them with a sports luxe ensemble of sleek trousers, slouchy t-shirt and a relaxed blazer or channel Michael Kors in long floaty skirts and chunky knits.
To really be on top of the trend, take your slides into the evening by buying a bold metallic pair as seen at Stine Goya and Chloe. This Hoxton cross strap pair are perfect. Or, if you really want those extra few inches height, buy a chunky soled pair.
For the really fashion forward, defy convention and team your sandals with socks – word on the street is it’s no longer a fashion no-no.
