What’s With All the Fluffy Shoes at London Fashion Week?
This year’s London Fashion Week is the fluffiest we’ve ever seen it. While attending the Burberry show on Sept. 18, celebrities took a page out of Dr. Seuss’s book, wearing iterations of the fashion house’s iconic shearling sandals for an unexpectedly fuzzy phenomenon. Some, like Kylie Minogue, went totally classic, exposing their tufted heels and toes to create a head-turning statement piece. Others, like Jourdan Dunn, got even bolder with their Seussical shoes, stepping out with what seemed like entire truffula trees on their feet.
Given that fluffy heels are a signature Burberry item, it’s no wonder so many people found the style appropriate for the show. But in their excitement to debut the finest mules in all of Whoville, a multitude of Fashion Week attendees ended up wearing almost identical footwear, their fluffy heels intermingling around the runway.
To their credit, we imagine these sandals are among the comfiest shoes you could wear for a long day of watching runway shows (or helping the Grinch steal Christmas). The Seuss heels aren’t cheap (clocking in at around $1,190, for reference), but they are surprisingly versatile. Take it from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who styled her mustard yellow pair with a chic trench coat and oversize shades. If velvet rose sandals aren’t your thing, rest assured there’s plenty more to choose from. You could try the shaggy rounded-toe mules or Dunn’s strappy sandals, which were practically overflowing with fluff. So long as they’re fuzzy, you can’t go wrong.
