How hilariously amazing are these $600 Givenchy slides? Rihanna’s Puma slides are more cost-effective version of the trend, but they have been selling out so fast that you have to catch them the moment they restock. Then, I had a flashback to our DIY leather slides from two summers ago. I hadn’t worn mine too much since I bought the Eva Birkenstocks last year. And guess how easy it is to find faux fur fabric on Etsy? Thus, a DIY project was born.
I purchased 1/8 of a yard of grey shag fabric from FurFauxFabrics, and it was probably enough for 3 or 4 pairs of sandals. I chose grey to match the base of my sandal for a monochromatic look. Grey is also the newest color of the Rihanna release, which crashed the site as soon as the restock went live. If I made another pair, I would probably choose the eggplant, pink black, or hot pink to copy the Givenchy pair. The sandals I purchased for the last DIY are the Nike Benassi slides, which are still available for $20. I followed the instructions from our last post and voila!
Totally crazy and totally fun. What do you think about the furry footwear trend?
