Return of the Plimsolls
The great folks over at Kempt have made their prediction that this spring will mark the return of the plimsoll.
Although they can be a fun way to add some color or patterns to a relatively simple shape, I can’t help but hope this is wrong. We’ve seen so many plimsolls in the past few years, aren’t we due for something different? I thought espadrilles made for a fun summer (although I think we can all agree that one year is really enough), but something a little more structured would be nice.
Take these new Nike Pre-Montreal racers found at J. Crew; they provide a little more structure, but still look great with shorts or rolled denim. In the end, can you really ask more of a shoe during the spring?
