The must-have shoes of Spring ’16? Leather slip-ons! There are already plenty to choose between, from the skate shoe-inspired to the extremely minimalist, but none are as chic as Derek Lam’s handcrafted Santa Monica slippers. Derek has a way of elevating even the most basic of staples, and you need not look past his latest casual shoe to see that.
Soft nappa leather, in your choice of black, natural cream, or khaki green, has been delicately laser-cut to deliver a peekaboo effect, perfect for when you want to get in the mode for spring without wearing an open-toed style. Speaking of delicate, these ingeniously embroidered slip-ons are just nuanced enough to go with anything from your new floral dress to ripped jeans to chic yoga gear. Sure, they’ll look great strolling down their namesake Santa Monica pier, but they’re also versatile enough to wear just about anywhere. Get creative, and style them to your heart’s content. Derek Lam sneakers at Derek Lam for $595.
