Fore Front Fashion

Are “shower shoes” the new must-have spring sandals?

By: Laura Serino

Remember last summer when Birkenstocks made a big comeback? Well hold onto your seats ladies and gentlemen, because next season we’ll be upping the ante in none other than shower shoes.

You probably wore them in college or in your high school locker room. They’re the athletic slides (I had this pair) with a velcro adjustable front and perforated soles that felt like your tootsies were getting a constant massage. Though they aren’t the best looking sandals around, I suppose there’s nothing wrong with a little comfort and support! Just please, I beg you, don’t wear them with tube socks.

Refinery29 reported on this trend and has a great roundup if you’re in the mood to buy a pair right here.  So what do you think? Should I expect to see this around town once the warm weather hits? Or should this stay designated to the dorms?
