    i keep seeing all these girls with the slide on mocassin type shoes...
    they're mules...open in back
    and flat...
    and can't be very expensive because i see them everywhere...

    who makes these?...are they steve madden or something?...i'm so curious now... :unsure:

    yes...puckered seams...and i admit that i don't love them either...which is why i can't understand why they're everywhere i turn...so i figure they MUST be cheap..it's the only explanation...

    what are they???... :unsure:

    Heya Softie. I dont know what the technical term is... but I call 'em moccasin slides.. Steve madden had them out.. they still do... so do several steve madden-ish stores. I have a pair of steve madden ones but they hurt my feet like hell... i prefer the ones i got from anthropologie in silver(pic above)... Are these what you're talkin about?

    Right now Steve madden is selling them for 59. I bought mine for a bit more... but make sure you try them on and give them a test before you buy, a lot of the ones i tried on were made horribly and pieces of leather were rubbing on the sides of my feet.. which soon caused blisters...

    i'm not really thinking of getting them for myself luna... i'm just interested in where the trend is coming from...because i didn't seee this one coming and suddenly it's everywhere...

    i even saw people on long island in the suburbs wearing them...

    They started showing up early spring... They're a slight spin off of the popular beaded slippers + moccasin trend....

    In my opinion, these shoes will be just like those chinese beaded slippers next year. EVERYONE will be wearing them.. even the homeless people on the subway.

    Yup - they've been around here since mid spring to summer time :wacko:

    i don't have a clue where they've popped up from either - i haven't even seen them in shops around here and i live in a city full of shoe shops :shock: !

    i'm thinking there may be a moccasin slide fairy working some magic and they just turn up on peoples feet and they can't get them off because i have not seen them in shops and i can tell you i'm not one to walk past a shoe shop and not have a look. :innocent:

    Tis quite strange. I can honestly say i shall not be wearing them though.
