Plastic Fantastic: You Should Give Cinderella-Inspired Shoes A Try!

Stuck in a shoe rut? You're not alone. I've gotta admit: Living in my flats and sneakers is a temptation I've given into. While I bask in the comfort of wearing such shoes on a daily basis, I have now hit that point of boredom and am looking for something to shake things up in the footwear department. While on the quest to look for my next purchase, I've come across a trend that makes wearing plastic fantastic, quite literally. Read on to see why...

One shoe trend that's making its presence felt apart from dad-inspired chunky rubbershoes are transparent shoes or what fashion insiders would call "Cinderella" shoes, because well, they do look like those glass slippers from the fairy tale, except they're not really made of glass. It's 2018, and wearing faux glass shoes is the cool thing to do. The likes of Kim Kardashian is a fan of these shoes made using PVC plastic, making it a lot more comfortable and wearble. We're not sure they're a great choice for the rain, but hey, they're cute, so reserve them for those dressier occasions held indoors.
