Fashion’s Most Comfortable Shoe Trends Are Back & Better Than Ever


As our day-to-day outfits have conformed to the current dynamics of our world, shoe trends have also drastically shifted to meet our most recent leisure needs. Because we are leaving the house less and limiting our exposure to the outside more, our demand for comfortable footwear has become a matter of even greater importance. Although life has gotten less hectic for many of us and we now have more time to lounge around in style, our priorities have gone from stunning statements to subtle chic real quick, forcing us to frantically adjust our shopping needs to fit our new lifestyles.

While temperatures rise, we're wearing less these days from our heads to our toes. As we run errands and find creative ways to be active outdoors, we've become less pressured to go full glam while subscribing to a new form of effortlessly wearing not-so-ordinary basics but making them fashion.

No longer limited to dull neutral tones and flat thin soles, creative variations of slides, Velcro straps, quilted, and chunky platform sandals are on the rise. With contrasting colors, textures, and intricate designs, this is the revitalized luxe shoe trend to slide your feet in for the remainder of summer 2020.

Growing up, my parents always told me to save my money. Did I always listen? Of course not, but it’s one of the pieces of financial advice that I remember. I was also told not to depend on credit cards. I often saw my parents use their debit cards to pay for everything, and it wasn’t until I got older that I learned how to use credit cards to my advantage.

While talking to Natalia Brown and Dasha Kennedy, I learned I wasn’t the only one who grew up with similar teachings. Natalia serves as the Chief Compliance and Consumer Affairs Officer for National Debt Relief (NDR), and Dasha is a Financial Wellness Board Member for NDR and also runs the online platform The Broke Black Girl. Together, they are educating Black women and others on debt, the good and the bad.
