Chances are, your shoe of choice for any moves that need to be made on the cover — hitting the corner store, knocking out last- nanosecond errands, pulling up to an improvisational hang is some kind of slide. Worn solo in the summer( or with scuzzy camp socks when the rainfall is less accommodating), it’s a no- frills figure that demands minimum trouble from its wear and tear. Simply slip one on and continue with your day.
For style- inclined Angelenos of a certain disposition( suppose Seth Rogen or Jonah Hill), the slide du jour is Fear of God’s California figure, a featherlight, froth- suchlike model that’s cropped up on red carpets and press jaunts with a surprising frequence. So for his rearmost collaboration, FOG kahuna Jerry Lorenzo went straight to the snug- footbed source, teaming up with the German slip- on whizzes at Birkenstock on a deluxe sandal fated to be another megahit.
On the face, the figure is enough understated, but the inflated heel mug, wide swatch, and thick rubber soles make just enough of a statement to distinguish it from the rest of Birkenstock’s red-hot multifariousness. Which is exactly the point. Buying anything — indeed a brace of knock- around slides just for the sake of it's noway sound policy, a notion Lorenzo is particularly attuned to. His rearmost collection, he told GQ last time, was informed by his desire to draft perfect performances of the pieces missing from his wardrobe, without having to worry about buying it all again the coming season. The hunt for perfect slides may not be as involved, but the one- and- done approach holds true just the same.
