So, I know we're on the down-swing of summer and I'm really not thinking too much about summer sandals right now, but I saw an article on these granny shoes that "all the hipsters are wearing". Mainstream news outlets can be so funny, no? Anyhoo... they're called Worishofers. They're hand-crafted in Germany. And they are extremely orthopedic looking. Maybe you're already hip to these, but my being oh-so-not hip, this is the first time I've seen them.
The article I read said they'd been spotted on the likes of Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kirsten Dunst and Michelle William. Now, I don't really follow "celebrity fashion" but if I did, I'm certain these ladies would be at the top of my list. Plus they look darn cute on the gals in the street style snaps above. The jury is still out as far as I'm concerned. They do look awfully comfortable which is more than I can say for a lot of sandals. What do you think? So ugly they're cute?
