9 Stylish Slip On Sneakers

I’m not sure when avoiding laces became a “thing,” but the slip-on sneaker trend has invaded my closet and I’m not turning back. I’ve got styles in all price points like the Salvatore Ferragamo pair bought in Venice as in Venice, Italy while on vacation with my husband. We were looking at ties for him and while I found the prints on the ties amusing I thought they were too small to make an impact so I gravitated to the shoe section and BAM! the slip-on sneaker with the signature Ferragamo bow caught my eye. Then I was pulling clothes at Kohl’s for a TV segment and a simple black leather pair from Vera Wang caught my eye. This is the pair that just about everyone owns when they venture towards this trend; the pair that I bought for about , but some pay 0 plus for the same style. Then came the pair while in NYC for Thanksgiving. I moved to LA from NYC about six years and while I head back often for work, this holiday is the yearly trek my husband and I make for family, friends, food and the theater. And for some reason we seem to stop into the same Cole Haan store in Rockefeller Plaza every year and buy something. No joke! I think it’s because I always need a second look at the Bergdorf windows nearby. By day we see the windows with my family and at night it’s just the two of us and as we walk down Fifth Avenue afterwards and look at the twinkling lights beckoning us in store windows we always walk into Cole Haan for some reason. This past holiday it was for the very last pair of leather gloves they had in the store. Daysun, the hubby, always forgoes gloves, but with my prodding and temps below 30 he succumbed and I bought him a pair. Then I walked into the shoe department and found yet another pair of slip-on sneakers that would continue to forge my fondness for the trend. A coppery, brassy colored faux snakeskin style that in my mind would be an alternative to flats when worn with skinny jeans. Next up, a pale marsala colored canvas pair from Vans. I  haven’t worn these yet, but they’re ready and waiting for a turn in my wardrobe. So with four pairs I’m going to try and stop since it’s halfway towards my obsession with brogues (I own eight pairs of them and half of them have come from that same NYC Cole Haan store). I find it fascinating that this simple slip-on can range so drastically in price. My savvy-minded approach says there’ll probably all made in about three factories, but priced vastly different depending on the brand. The stylist in me says just go with it; they’re comfortable and  you like them no matter the price.
