The last time I wore a pair of slides I was in high school.
I remember that very embarrassing day, walking the halls with these black Nike slides three sizes too big. They belonged to one of my friends who I begged to borrow from after someone else accidently ripped one of my favorite sandals. There I was in the middle of the school day and Seth, my 7 ft classmate with size 16 feet stepped on my sandals and they were done. My only option other than walking the dirty halls barefoot, as if I had no broughtupcy (Bahamian for being raised properly), was to borrow a pair of slides from a friend. They were huge! I thought no one would notice but, of course the fact that my already large feet were now gigantic stood out without a doubt. That was the last time I wore slides.
Seven years later and I’m sitting on my dining room floor creating a pair to make up for that less than exciting day in high school. Did Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma create a new trend? No, she’s just an international superstar with a name big enough to take all the credit. Which is pretty dope!
