A Boy Shoe No More

Skater Slip-On Sneakers Get a Chic Makeover from Top Designers

BY // 07.22.15

Once a classic boys shoe, now a necessity for the chicest of casual outfits … How has this skater slip-on sneaker fallen into the arsenals of some of the top designers?

Easy. They’re comfortable, effortless and stylish — a combination we all love. Gone are the days of sacrificing a great outfit because of your frumpy flats. Designers Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, Saint Laurent and others have put out a variety of slip-ons to match every occasion. Throw on a leather jacket with your slip-ons for some edgy street cred, or slide into a more feminine pair for a perfect midi-skirt combination.

For the days when heels aren’t happening, the easy slip-on will lend major style points.
