Summer Trend Spotting: Heeled Flip Flops

Posted by Catherine Kallon

There once was a time when flip flops were confined to the beach, park or shopping centres, now they are popping up on the red carpet.

Some consider flip flops a crime against fashion as they make your feet dirty, and the make an annoying clappy clap sound when you walk in them, so it’s rather baffling that someone decided to add a heel to them, and make them this summer hottest fashion item.

First spotted on the feet of several street style stars during Copenhagen Fashion Week, the trend has been embraced by several brands from Yeezy to Instagrammable Staud.

So with the retro design having some pretty powerful sartorial backers, does this rubber soled shoe deserved a place in our wardrobe?

    Flip flops are for the beach. Period.

    Why are people so obsessed with the 90s and early 2000s…Like, they were here 20 years ago, no need to bring them back. I can’t wait for this to be over.
    The only thing I think of is how today’s teens will look at their pictures in 10 years and roll their eyes at them just as much as I do at mine and my fashion sense. There was a lot of kitsch in it which seems to have surfaced again.

    All the discomfort of a heel, plus the weird tan lines and toe wedgie of a flip flop! What’s not to love?

    I thought white pumps were bad but these shoes are really awful. Please do not let these become a thing.

    As if normal flip flops weren’t bad enough.

    An unappealing trend which I shan’t be buying into.
