As possibly the trashiest of all trashionistas, I am all about comfort and ease — I promise you — even so, I just cannot squash the urge to sock anyone over the age of 12, with money, who pretends to care about looking decent and has the nerve to wear those wretched “Crocs” shoes out in public (unless they are gardening). I try to avoid telling other people what they should or should not do as I’m sure my unkempt appearance bums out a lot of traditional fashionistas but in this particular instance, I just can’t help it. People need to understand that they can be super-comfortable and ultra-casual without looking like their footwear just tumbled out of a 25 cent toystore vending machine.
Stylish people of the world, please take a cue from California-based designers, Trovata, who had the sense to team up with TOMS Shoes for their Spring 2007 Fashion Week presentation. Now this is how effortless SHOULD be done…
Available in 18 unisex colors and combinations, TOMS shoes are seriously amazing in more ways than one. Not only are these Argentine Utilitarian-Inspired slip-ons super soft, practical and comfy but they also operate under the ‘NO SWEATSHOP‘ credo AND have a greater cause. Each pair sold is personally matched with a donated pair to a child in need. Now that reason alone, if any, is enough to make you kiss your Crocs goodbye (Even though I wish you’d never said “Hello” in the first place).
I expect these to be my official slip-on shoe of the Spring/Summer seasons. Add layered necklaces, tousle hair and go!
