What’s the story with shoes this Spring? Everyone has suddenly decided comfort is king.
Have you seen all the tennies (does anyone else say that? ), Vans and Van wanna-bes about?

Then I read in Bazaar yesterday they declared wedge sandals out and you should ‘store’ them. What? I happen to like my wedges. ( Humph) They say it is the season of the flat sandal.
Remember these Adidas Shower Sandals?
Apparently, the shoes of cute swimmers are back and you’ll see a lot of different takes on them
Fashion Police this week they said they loved the flat and low sandals with everything.
Then there’s the whole Birkenstock revival going on.
I just love this look.

I tried this pair on at the Nordstrom Rack the other day…
This look wasn’t the same on me, but they did feel comfy. They are a lot more affordable there.
Maybe a more fashiony pair is more me. I like the cream and black versions.
I did get these..
They are Steve Madden and were $22 on the clearance section. Very comfortable and I like the zip in back- no fussing with a buckle. I’m lazy that way. Who can’t resist another pair of nude sandals? They have a very low wedge and are more flattering than you think…I am hoping to wear these with distressed skinny Current Elliot jeans and a flesh toned silk blouse. Are they too disco with all the studs?
As far as Vans, I still have memories of going to downtown Los Gatos with my high school bestie, Monica to Alex’s Surf Shop, with wadded up babysitting dollars to buy white Vans around 1983. Monica got a custom pink and blue version with checkerboard rubber trim. Hers were way more flash. Story of my life. I’m a sucker for the classics I guess even then.
Somehow, the all-white Vans still hold some charm for me as I got a little thrill opening the J. Crew Catalog and seeing this..
I swear I had the exact pair and washed them with Tide in my mother’s machine. I wore them with dolphin shorts and a long sleeve Dr Zoggs T. ( Vaurnet glasses with a leash too of course!)
So can you still go back if it’s been 30 years?
I’m thinking I might get a pair for Summer escapades. (God know those are to the exciting grocery.)
On the been there, done that note, what about these Wayfarers? I also had those back in the day and just bought these. My 12 year old told me under no circumstances should I be wearing these and aviators are better for moms. Who made him Tim Gunn?
