Bon Iver, Now With More Kittens!

Y’all know I’m not a huge Bon Iver fan, and though he has wide acclaim as some sort of indie rock heartthrob, I find the idea of sexing Bon Iver to be as repugnant as, say, Frenching a trout. Last year, he unleashed his shoe collaboration with the shoe company Keep. What qualified Bon Iver as a shoe designer, I don’t know, but anyway, he made some sneakers with an (of course) feather on them. Just now, we’ve uncovered the commercial Bon Iver made to promote the shoes. It was apparently made on a farm with free-range kittens and pups (all of whom were rescued). It is also deeply earnest and Bon Iver-y, which of course means I had to blow up its spot. After the jump, Bon Iver’s imagined director’s commentary for the video. Keep reading »

Nope, I Do Not Accept Adidas Slides As High Fashion Accessories

High fashion Adidas Slides

Adidas slides have been the purview of college bros for decades now, the choice footwear for pairing with over-sized basketball shorts and visor caps. But of late, they’ve been making insidious inroads in the fashion world. Witness the style shoot above, for the brand Aitken Jolly: the knee-high athletics socks were bad enough, but the slides? You are taking it to a Next Level Awful place.

And Aitken Jolly aren’t the only ones: Fashionista spoke to Nonoo designer Misha Nonoo, who said, “I just thought the Adidas shower sandals really spoke to something that’s kind of l’air du temps.” Uh, what?

Fashion “experts” say that the renewed interest in Adidas slides goes back to high-end designer Phoebe Philo and her collections for Celine. “The clean lines and shape of the Adidas sandal are very much on point with where fashion accessories are going right now–the first example that comes to mind on a designer level is the Celine sandals in regards to shape and style,” said stylist Danielle Nachmani.

How to wear orange wedges

I received these shoes as a gift recently and I am racking my brain trying to figure out what to wear with them that is daytime casual. I feel like an orange dress would be too much. Any thoughts?––Gina

First off Gina, hi! I gotta say, I think it’s kind of weird to gift someone a pair of shoes. Shoes are so particular and personal, but then again, maybe I’m just prejudiced because the one time somebody wanted to buy me shoes it was really weird. Anyways! Those shoes have a lot of personality, which means that you should keep the rest of your outfit pretty tame. Let the shoes do the talking (and walking, as it were). Keep reading »

Awesomely Affordable: 10 Pairs Of Work-Friendly Sandals

Ladies, step away from the flip flops. As comfy as they may be around the house or in the dorm/gym shower (please, you’re not going in there barefoot, are you?), flip flops aren’t appropriate in, like, 99 percent of office environments. You might think if you put a massive foam platform on it or something, it’s okay, but no. Also, those foam platform flip flops gross me out in the same way espadrilles do.

So what is appropriate? First, check if your workplace has any kind of dress code. Here at The Frisky, the general rule is, “go ahead, wear some clothes, and maybe some shoes — though you really don’t necessarily need to even keep them on all day.” Yeah, we’re gross. But most places, not so much. As a general rule, it’s a good idea to make sure more of your foot is covered than uncovered — especially if you work in any kind of public-facing job (aka retail). Nobody needs to see your shrimp cocktail toes.

Above, 10 awesome, affordable pairs of summer sandals that we think would work in most offices (all under $100 bucks!).
