Every so often a polarizing trend comes along that fashion girls unapologetically adore (chunky sneakers being an au courant favorite). After a while, such a look manages to reach a state of normalcy that even the most reluctant of shoppers will come around to, and with warm weather upon us, a certain “ugly” favorite is back: comfort slides.
