Every Fashion Girl Owns a Pair of These Shoes

Ever since Phoebe Philo introduced furry pool slides into our lives, we’ve held a special place for the “ugly sandals” trend in our hearts. They’re comfortable, unexpected, and a little bit strange; a positive attribute when you’re looking to step out of the box. Thankfully, so many other of our favorite brands also value this offbeat look, like Marni and Acne Studios and even fast-fashion sites like Zara and Mango. Also, let’s not forget classic footwear labels like Teva, Birkenstock, and Dr. Scholl’s also fit into this category.

To aid in proving that these shoes can, in fact, be cool and even you (yes, you) can wear them this summer, we rounded up a strong handful of fashion girls illustrating how to style them. We also included our favorite sandals so you can stock up.

See below, and let us know what you think of the trend in the comments.
