Sorry for the delay. It’s that busy time of year. You know, the too hot to move, let alone put a scorching hot laptop on your lap for more than 30 seconds, time of year.
Speaking of summer laziness, I’m contemplating going against personal principle and making my first purchase of slip-on shoes. Always one to prefer a few laces on my shoes, I never jumped on the slip-on trend. Maybe it was the thick monochromatic soles, always present in staples like Vans (even if the rest of the shoe is customizable).
But Zuriick offers a nice blend of a more classic cut with contemporary design, shoes that are less likely to remind you of what you were sporting back when the NKOTB were peaking in popularity.
They’re becoming more widely available in stores – just recently I went to Urban Outfitters to check out their Beata design. This is probably the biggest threat to my first purchase of slip-ons – a refresh of the classic desert boot design.
