Casual street style with rubber shoes: You can really go to town with these 3 looks
Opinions are divided when it comes to rubber shoes: For some, they are clunky shoes that belong in the operating room rather than on the catwalk. For others, Adilettes, Crocs etc. are creations that are not only comfortable, but also instantly give any look a big helping of coolness. The soft soles are anything but floppy, and are capturing the hearts (and feet) of trendsetters. Anyone who doesn’t consider rubber shoes to be a fashion statement can at least look smart in the new designs where they were originally designed for: at the swimming pool. Come on, get your slides on! This is how rubber shoes can be styled for the casual street look!
1. Rubber shoes with dresses and skirts
Black oversized dresses with large side pockets are skillfully highlighted with slides. A shoulder bag with rivets, a pair of dark sunglasses and a cool sun visor make the sporty shoes ready for the street. A black plisse skirt made from cotton can be pepped up with a white blouse, a pink tie, black knee socks and rubber shoes.
2. Rubber shoes with shorts
Combined with knee-length denim shorts or sexy hotpants, crocs work just as well as slides or rubber boots. Off-duty style looks particularly casual with a oversized V-necklong sleeved top, a Newsboy-Cap and a hobo style bag. Even men can’t miss out on this trend. Adilettes with Bermuda shorts and a T-shirt look as good on the street as they do on the beach.
3. Rubber shoes with jeans
Jeans are a fashion staple and can be worn with anything – rubber shoes included. Surely you wouldn’t go to college or school in classic Adilettes? Well, you could. Have confidence in yourself! Together with a white T-shirt, rolled up boyfriend jeans, a long blazer and an elegant clutch, the stylish slides become a guaranteed eye-catcher. Men don’t have to go without comfortable flip-flops, either. With black jeans, a white T-shirt and a sports jacket you’re perfectly dressed for the next lecture. Want to bet that this courageous look earns some applause?
For years, rubber shoes were denounced as “pleb wear”, and were considered to be the epitome of bad taste. Those days are long gone. Be it for men or women: These comfortable shoes have become totally acceptable.
