This Is the Surprise Shoe That You Might Just Find Yourself Wearing This Spring
While Gucci's hairy slippers reigned supreme as last year's surprise shoe hit (only for the very, very brave), it looks like 2016 could be the year of the "Babouche." Inspired by traditional Moroccan footwear, the popularity of the flat slip-on with its sharp pointed toe has been fuelled by Phoebe Philo, who showed the style on the Céline catwalk for Spring. Victoria Beckham and Opening Ceremony quickly followed with similar styles, and a trend was born.
At first glance, the overlong tip might seem a bit strange, but once you start working your way through these photos of bloggers seamlessly working the slim leather shoe into their wardrobe, you see how it might eventually win you over. Especially if it means that, for one season at least, you can leave your high heels at home!
