After contemplating buying into the Birkenstock trend for seasons now (but being put off by seeing it everywhere) I finally decided to go for a pair of black and white Adilettes – the (in)famous Adidas slipper. Years and years ago I had a pair in pink, worn exclusively when showering by the public swimming pools. For some reason I always had a soft spot for this classic slipper plagued by bad-taste association, but their weird charm finally wore me down once again.
So I have decided that they will be a part of my summer uniform this year, worn with my mostly black wardrobe items, stripey cotton tshirts and straw hats, and for the record – sans socks. Starting today.
