Jolie Laide Slip-On Sneakers
They’re funky, they’re clunky, and are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I’ve ever worn. Here’s how they wound up on my feet…
We’re away on a long weekend road trip to celebrate le Monsieur’s birthday. I’d packed a pair of low wedge pumps that are two or three years old. I haven’t worn them in a while but they’d never given me any trouble before. So I put them on to go to dinner. After walking a short distance, my feet hit the wall. They just weren’t having it, and I knew I had to get out of those shoes, STAT. It was a shoe-mergency.
We were next door to a shopping mall, and the first potentially workable store that I spotted was Vince. I knew they were having a 25% off Friends and Family promotion. I hobbled in hoping to find some sort of simple loafer or sandal. After trying and being unmoved by several pairs, I tried these on out of desperation. They didn’t have much shelf appeal, but won me over when I saw how they looked on, not to mention how good they felt. I know they won’t be everyone’s cup of French Roast, but I think they’re really cool. They add a bit of insouciance to a smart casual outfit.
