Celebrities have brought forward some questionable shoe trends that took off this summer. First, it was the revival of Birkenstocks, the “ugly” sandal that has graced the feet of stars like Reese Witherspoon and Katie Holmes. Then, it was the rise of squishy pool slides, a water-repellent style that supermodels like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber can’t stop wearing. And now, it’s the emergence of ruched sandals, a slip-on shoe with ruffle detailing that we’ve spotted a handful of our favorite celebrities wearing.
This texture is not new and has already taken over other walks of fashion. It was dominant on tops and bikinis – mainly by the stars’ beloved brand Hunza G, and had also found its footing in the bags department, partly due to Amazon’s viral “Gabi” bag. And, now, it is making its mark in the shoe section as well. Many stars have been already spotted sporting this shoe style recently. Jessica Alba opted for a kelly green pair from Staud with a bright patterned midi skirt and a tied white button-down shirt for a trip to NYC, and Jennifer Lawrence wore the same $265 sandal in caramel brown with a mustard yellow midi dress.
