We’re not saying never ever to Everest-high stilettos — we’re saying not yet. Baby steps.
If a year of staying in and staying put has left your legs ever-so-slightly moulded to the fuzzy fleece lining of your favourite sweatpants, well, you’re not alone. They’re comfortable! Dependable. The sartorial equivalent of a warm hug from someone you love; someone you miss. A favourite show you no longer remember watching the first-time round.
Now, as whispers of re-emergence outfits begin to take hold, we’ve had a few battles to conquer. The motions of getting dressed, for one. “Hard pants” (see: jeans), for another — that was a tough one. Your next scheduled skirmish: footwear. A middle ground for shoes beyond the shearling insoles; beyond the orthopaedic.
You might sneer at these love-’em-or-hate-’em sandals now but they are soft, plush places to tuck your toes. Just until you’re ready for something more advanced. Kitten heels, maybe?
