Now that we’ve basically kicked that whole wedge sneaker trend, celebrities, who have always been big fans of comfortable footwear, are gravitating towards a shoe that seems to be a hybrid between the classic flat and a comfortable sneaker. The slip on is essentially what it would look like if a ballet flat had one too many martinis and woke up next to a tennis shoe… nine months later. A style of shoe made most popular by skateboarders sporting Vans all over Southern California in the 1970′s, the casual shoe has been reinvented by designer brands like Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Prada. While the feel is definitely a bit more downtown, I get the feeling even uptown girls will be heading to Barney’s to shop the look.
