Move over Birkenstock, there's a new ugly shoe in town. Teva.
Birkenstocks, so last season dahling. Jump on board the cool kid train and embrace the sandal of the season the new normcore hiking sandal inspired by the Teva brand. Part sporty sandal mixed with chunky rubber sole and bright colour. This is the flat shoe your Dad wears on holiday, but this time around its totally upgraded to fash pack status.
Along the same lines of the normcore Birkenstocks, think chunky flatform soles, primary colours and the all important velcro straps.
Spotted last Summer on early adopters these are now the new hot sandal shape.
Despite being 30 years old the Teva brand is having its moment, with its distinctive velcro straps and minimal design. For Summer 2015 they are taking a walk down memory lane and re-launching the Teva Originals from more than 30 years ago. Along with durability and comfort, look out for new leather styles and embellishment.Totally practical, comfortable and cool, where else do we sign up I hear you cry? Well there is a plethora of options out there from the originals Teva sold at Schuh and Office to the bargains on the High Street with their inspired versions, hello Primark to the fash pack favourite Marni.
Wondering what to wear with? We are feeling that they are the new festival must have, just add denim cut offs and a comfy oversized sweater for the ultimate normcore look. Going for a more blingy style? Why not wear head to toe black with skinny jeans and black crop top that will take you dancing all night in Ibiza.
So get yourself pedi ready and embrace the cool comfort of the new ugly sandal.
Colour blocking, a flatform sole and comfortable, whats not to love?
Yes they can be blingy too, never mind hiking, these 'Koral' bad boys would take us dancing all night long at our Summer festivals.
Bright neon and totally on trend, this is our High Street pick.
Not just for day, try a shiny metallic finish to add some fun to your look.
We think these have a designer look at High Street prices, add to basket.
Just add silk PJ style shorts and a cashmere sweater for a easy weekend look.
