“Ugly” Shoe Trend
Ugliness, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, even for women’s shoes. So, what is this buzz about? The ugly shoes trend is stirring up a storm and the fashion magazine, Vogue has finally confirmed that ugly shoes are in. You would have never guessed in a thousand years that the word “ugly” existed in the high fashion glossary. This is such a big step forward in the fashion world towards increasing the comfort of shoes rather than solely focusing on how they look. The mantra beauty is pain is no longer the phrase designers live by. In 2014, ugly is the new beautiful. Powerhouse designers like Chloe, Marc Jacob, Tommy Hilfiger, and Prada took casual sandals off the street and onto the runway. They added a creative twist by pairing Birkenstock-inspired shoes with feminine frocks, tailored pants, and edgy cropped tops and denim. Ugly shoes are now being brought into the light of day and onto the feet of fashion editors, celebrities, and bloggers alike. Make Me Chic has always been a great fan of the comfortable “ugly” shoes.
