I get a commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.
Sorry to tell you, but luxe pool slides are somehow . If 2018 was all about luxe pool slides, 2019 is clearly not. 2019 number one summer shoes are flip-flops. Well, maybe not number one, since Teva sandals and strappy nude sandals are popular as well. But flip-flops are undoubtedly top 3 2019 summer shoes.
Yes, that ugly summer flats that make you look sloppy, your feet gigantic and make you feel small and underdressed. Well, truth to be told, I’m not sure if flip-flops actually make you feel underdressed. But that is what they should make you feel.
At least before summer 2019. When flip-flops are officially fashionable again.
You know, once something is back in fashion, it feels all right to wear it everywhere. But work, of course. Luckily flip-flops are still out of the office. Leaving the place for more work appropriate and more comfortable shoes.
Ps. The list of summer 2019 IT office shoes is already on Brunette from Wall Street soon. You can, check what shoes to wear for work in 2019 over here.
ARE FLIP-FLOPS TRULY BACK IN FASHION FOR SUMMER 2019?
Whatsoever, it’s the flip-flops we are talking about today. Because yes, flip-flops are truly back in style for summer 2019.
Remember I wrote about fashionistas wearing flip flops during Copenhagen fashion week last August? Here in case, you missed. Back then we all thought flip-flops were just a microtrend. And Danish girls were wearing them just because they were trying to set a new fashion trend. But in the end, flip flops would stay in the trash bins at the beach or in the dusty shoe boxes. Like mines.
However, we were all wrong. Well done, Danish girls! Flip flops walked from the streets of Copenhagen straight to the runways. The ugly strappy flops were all over the spring-summer 2019 runways. Seen in almost every fashion show. From New York to Paris.
WILL I SWAP LUXE POOL SLIDES FOR FLIP FLOPS IN SUMMER 2019?
Honestly, I still can’t believe everyone fashionable is shopping flip-flops for summer 2019. And making these ugly flats IT summer shoes fashionable long before summer 2019.
Everyone fashionable but me. Because, hell no, I’m not wearing flip flops in summer 2019. I simply can’t. Flip-flops are heading straight to my Never going to wear list (see here). I’m wearing espadrilles instead.
I mean just put them next to the luxe pool slides. It’s quite clear flip-flops are that ugly summer flats that look better in the shoe box than on your feet.
Not that they actually look bad on me. Flip-flops do look hideous on my sister though. Only flip-flops are just the most uncomfortable and unpractical summer shoes I have ever worn. Although I must admit, I only wore them once or twice to the swimming pool.
Sure, you can put them on in a second, but you can’t walk in flip-flops from street to office. What street? You can’t even wear them on the street. Obviously, Danish girls during the fashion week are an exception. Street style during fashion week doesn’t count. We all wear uncanny outfits during the fashion week.
Anyway, Danish girls aside, as said I’m not wearing flip-flops this summer. Nor ever again. Yes, I dare to say that! Although I admit, I don’t find all the flip-flops from the widget below hideous. Ugly, yes, but somehow wearable. That is if you manage to walk in flip-flops without stumbling.
Whatsoever, I picked those flip-flops for you. Just in case you actually like flip-flops.
BEST FLIP-FLOPS TO WEAR IN SUMMER 2019
So here they are. The flip-flops I would wear in summer 2019 if it was between death and life, and I had no choice but to put on flip-flops.
Ps. Don’t blame me if something bad happens to you while walking around in flip-flops. Remember I claim flip-flops are not the best summer shoes for your feet. Studies prove so. By the way, you might want to read this study as well – Effect of thong style flip-flops on children’s barefoot walking and jogging kinematics.
There is another study you might want to read about an alternative to fashionable flip-flops. According to this study “Does flip-flop style footwear modify ankle biomechanics and foot loading patterns?” FitFlops are supposed to be a better choice since the wider strap.
Nevertheless, I don’t trust this study before trying FitFlops by myself. Results could have been interpreted to prove FirFlops as the best alternative. Even so, since FitFlops don’t look that bad, I added them to the widget as well. They are those flip-flops with a wider strap.
