Are these Princetown Gucci slippers the ugliest shoes to have taken fashion by storm?
The mullet of footwear, these shoes are all about the comfort of a cozy down blanket on the back and classic, preppy Gucci style on the front. Since their controversial launch in 2015 the kangaroo fur trimmed slides have become a popular favorite among the fashion elite.
Two years since the $995 shoe made its first appearance it has been spotted on celebrities, models and fashionistas alike cementing its place as the coolest casual slip on. Though the trendy loafer has been around for quite a while now, there seem to be no signs of love for the style slowing down anytime soon.
Vogue.com said they were “head over heels” for the shoe Gucci’s “Princetown” shoes but it no surprise that not every one is not a fan.
Are they stylish or hideous? Or just a bit of bit of both?
