Welcome to Sandalcore
The Daily Mail has belatedly reported that, “according to those in the know, high heels are on their way out – with ‘ugly flats‘ set to be all the rage this spring.”
It seems stores are selling out of friend-deterring Isabel Marant sandals. They have brown soles, two straps of leather that pass for “adornment”, and they’re comfortable. They also demonstrate to everyone looking south of your ankles that you simply DGAF. If your feet are at a 90 degree angle with the floor, you need an update. Slip those stilettos off…off. We see you. No, your footwear doesn’t need to make a statement. No one’s that important. Submit. Welcome to sandalcore.
It’s true, Givenchy, Edun, and Celine got down to earth with Birkenstocks and flat sandals a few seasons ago. Now the public is responding by paying extra to tuck their toesies into two slightly less crunchy lifeless blocks that perform orthopedic functions. Here they are on eBay for the bargain price of $620. What a steal. (There are $20 versions too.) Do it, (at a more reasonable price.) Your feet will thank you.
