I can only stand an extra half a foot taller for so long! Smoking shoes have been turning up everywhere as of late and certainly, it’s in-part attributed to spring’s big pajama trend (do not wear these with an oversized, striped silk button-down or else you’ll look like you’ve been doing some serious sleepwalking!). But I can’t help but think, isn’t it a backlash to the six-inchers we’ve been wearing for so long?
I don’t care why they’re here – Charles Philip’s slipper-shoes look so nonchalantly chic, they are impossible to resist. And while they might knock us down, flat to the ground, they are a definite upgrade. Think Lauren Bacall in her heyday: innately sophisticated, always unbothered, and just a tad masculine. Shipped straight from Paris, leopard, black, and abstract-spot pony-skin are all equally appealing. I say, très bien to this trend! On Farfetch for $216.
