11 Slip-On Sneakers That Scream “Chic,” Not “High School Punk Phase”

Aside from most forms of pasta and ice cream, there are few things I love more than a new shoe trend. Does it make sense to lace up heels to the knees? Not really. Will I like to wear a leopard print sneaker in a year? Probably not. Did the wedge sneaker look totally weird in almost every scenario? Absoutely. However, there’s something about the constant rotation of shoe trends that makes me love them even more. Unlike your outfit, shoes are a little more daring and there’s always, always, always something new to try. And they always adapt. Enough said.

When I started seeing the slip-on sneaker pop up on my favorite style blogs and shopping sites, I was a little unsure at first. I had flashbacks of my pair of neon pink and black plaid slip-on vans (Dark Days) and was immediately confused by the idea that they were coming back in style. But then I saw them in leopard print, and I was convinced. Usually a neutral girl (although many people consider animal prints to be neutral…), I tend to steer clear of any animal prints you might see on safari. But for some reason, I was drawn to the trend (again) and suddenly Googled left and right to find the perfect pair of slip-ons. And like most fashionable shoes, there are so many options.
