Birkenstock on our feet have been our faithful companions through the summer for the last few years. This year, the comfortable shoes are being replaced by a serious competitor. It's hard to believe, but: the well-known flip-flops are back on our feet. And not just on the beach…
It girls like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid love the classic summer shoes. And combine it with casual vintage looks and stylish dresses. Brands such as Versace, Coperni and Miu Miu have reinterpreted flip-flops for the 2022 summer season and convey a retro feeling and glamour. As already mentioned, flip-flops are no longer only worn on the beach, but also to parties and social events.
Extravagant details instead of rubber
Flip-flops with platform heels are particularly popular this year, like the ones Kendall Jenner combines with a summer dress on Instagram. The stylish alternative to this are flip-flops with kitten heels - i.e. a narrow mini-heel three to five centimeters high. In addition, the shoes designed for the beach no longer only consist of rubber soles and simple toe posts. The designers have given the summer shoe a stylish update. Instead of rubber, flip-flops can be made of leather or decorated with sequin or feather details.
