21 Best UGGs for Women in 2022 (Boots, Slippers, More)

Nothing reminds us of the early aughts quite like furry UGG boots. Along with other Y2K staples like Juicy Couture sweatsuits, UGGs had a special place in our heart—and a prominent place in our closet—back in the day. First made cool by Australian surfers back in the '60s who loved their warmth and slip-on ease, UGGS in all their sheepskin glory were early trendsetters of the athleisiure look. Comfort-chic has become more of a mainstay than a fleeting trend during these pandemic years when all we really, really want is sartorial ease. Celebs and models (like Dua Lipa, Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber, and even Cher who is the new face of brand) have been proudly rocking their UGGs, making the boots feel of-the-moment, again. Even if they never went out of style for some of us, UGGs are definitely B...

17 Best Crocs of 2022 for Women, Men & Kids

Quite possibly the most divisive shoe in fashion history, Crocs were created first as a boating shoe over 20 years. Hence the, ahem, unique waterproof, good grip, easy-on-and-off design. Kids and chefs were early adopters of these comfy, foam-based shoes and Crocs (which are named after those pre-historic amphibians who love both land and water) has now blown up to become both a billion-dollar company and an iconic shoe brand. And while the haters are gonna hate, many a skeptic has been converted, especially in this continued era of comfortable fashion. In fact, Crocs have only grown more popular these last years with high-profile collabs featuring Balenciaga, Bad Bunny, Justin Bieber, Saweetie, and Karol G, among other A-listers. And if you just can't get down with the original style, the...

Custom Initial D x Nike Dunk Sneakers Are Simply Beautiful

While the Dunk craze is surely reaching its saturation point—I was in Sydney earlier this week and it felt like 40% of kids were rocking Pandas—there’s always room for innovation and amazing design work on the decades-old shoe.

I Just Got Rid of So Many Pairs of Shoes—These Are the Ones I Kicked and Kept

As someone who loves shoes, I have a bit of a storage problem. No one has an infinite amount of space for shoes, so we've all been here—I recently found myself at maximum shoe capacity in my closet. And at that point, the only thing left to do is weed out. One of my rules of thumb when it comes to deciding which shoes to get rid of is whether or not they're covered in a thick layer of dust. If the answer is yes, into the donation pile they go. I also take trends and comfort into consideration. That said, it's still difficult parting with shoes, but my best advice is to consider treating yourself to a new pair once you've freed up all that space.After doing the recent shoe clean-out in my own closet, I made several observations that might help to motivate you to do some decluttering of your...
