UNRULY | Sporty Sandals Are Seriously Having a Moment Right Now

I Hate Sports, but I LuUuUv Sporty Sandals

LMAO, what even is 2019 right now? It feels like fashion trends are just all over place. Ugly is cool, everything is ironic and I’m just trying to keep up with it all. But I’m not one to dismiss a trend just because I’m not totally sure about it upon first glance—including the sporty sandals trend. I mean, I’m not sporty at all, but it truly doesn’t even matter. Sporty sandals are worn for the ~aesthetic~ and not so you play actual sports in them. (Although, I’m sure the original versions of these shoes were created for people who really are sporty. Fashion over function, though, am I right?)

While the sporty sandal trend was initially off-putting to me, I’ve grown rather fond of these chunky, kind of ugly but definitely comfortable shoes. If fashion trends are gravitating toward comfort and ugliness on purpose, who am I to complain? I’m happy to sit back in my oversized tees, bike shorts and sporty sandals and look like I know the current trends. Frankly, that sounds like heaven.

If anyone is on the fence about a trend, my advice is always just to try it. I’ve found that sometimes I surprise myself with how stylish I can make an article of clothing—or, in this case, a pair of sporty sandals—look. To give you a peek at what kind of options you have in terms of sporty sandals, I rounded up some of my favorite pairs. You’re sure to see these babies everywhere this summer, so you might as well get on board.
