I’m a Shoe Hoarder—And these Flats Are By Far My Favorite Of the Season

Hi, my name is Judith Jones and I’m a shoe hoarder. What can I say? Good shoes take you good places! As a shoe devotee, there are certain styles I gravitate towards more than any others—and since I’ve been leaning into comfort more than anything this year there is a certain silhouette I just can’t seem to get enough of. Shearling slides—whether sandals, mules, slippers, or flats—have been a fashion favorite this season. Not only are they luxuriously cushy and comfortable, but they're easy to slip on and 100% on trend for the spring season—spotted on a plethora of designer collections from Balenciaga to Simon Miller.

Whether you dress them up with a floral frock or pair them with athletic shorts and a basic tank, they’ll add a cool and trendy touch to your wardrobe right now. Ready to slip your feet into a plush pair? Keep scrolling for my absolute favorites of the season and see how cool girls are wearing them right now.
