Last January, I wrote that I’ve been seeing those Adidas ’90s shower slides in fashion editorial spreads and Spring/Summer ’14 lookbooks – although the initial reaction of my peers in the fashion world was one with a tad bit of horror, against all odds, this humble pool slide has come back with a vengeance. I’ve been seeing some colleagues sporting them in magazine features and from what I hear, the Adidas Mi Adilette (yes, that’s what its called) is sold out at its NYC store. Even in Manila, it seems difficult to find the simple black and white pair. My cousin was somehow able to get me a pair (though I haven’t worn them yet), so if you have them lurking somewhere in the back of your closet, time to dust them off or maybe just grab them from your gym bag. Once I get around to wearing them however, I don’t think I’ll wear them to work – maybe I’ll remove my heels once I get to my desk and wear them when no one is looking, or perhaps on errand days. How do you plan to wear yours?
