Believe It: Fur Sandals Are the Hottest Shoes This Summer

Fashion this summer brings us the unlikeliest, most inappropriate trend for the hot-weather months: fur. We couldn’t believe it either, but it’s becoming harder and harder to deny.

The fur trend first began to bud late last year when Kim Kardashian was spotted wearing Celine ankle-strap sandals with rabbit fur on the insoles on two occasions. Her $6,600 shoes are from an old fall 2010 collection, so we initially thought nothing of it. It was just Kim re-wearing her old clothes; besides, it was still the cold months, so wearing fur was still appropriate.

Then, it was Rihanna who was spotted wearing fur on her footwear. And we know how RiRi impacts fashion; when she wears it, you can count on it selling out and becoming a major trend. The 27-year-old Barbadian singer looked like she swept the floors clean with her Simone Rocha fur-trimmed flats and, with it, swept fashion away with her latest discovery. RiRi must really love the fur trend because she even brought out the Celine fur-lined slides that were huge in 2013.

Fur sandals aren’t the most practical of trends, but then again, we could say the same thing for many fashion trends that have come and gone. Will you be going furry this summer?
