With nowhere to go and no reason to wear anything but ultra plush cushioning under your feet, the slipper shoes trend has officially reached an all-time high. And, judging from recent runways, it appears to be here to stay. Although 2020 might have been a slow year for fashion, designers have been fast at work crafting impeccably designed footbeds meant to cradle your every step. From shearling linings to cashmere coverings and supple second-skin like leather, here are some of the best takes on slipper shoes you can wear year-round.
The Crochet Slipper, Dolce & Gabbana
Playing into Dolce & Gabbana’s ongoing focus on “Fatto a Mano” (handmade), these heavenly crochet slippers give a knit sweater feel to your feet.
