Looking for a new flat that will give you comfort, coverage and a pop of color? Try a “Smoking Slipper”. This hot footwear trend is the newest style of comfort footwear embraced by designers and worn by celebrities. The new “ballet flat” of the season comes in neutrals, brights or patterns.

I gave the Aerosole Betunia slip-ons a try. While the comfort and great color were there, I am not a fan of this shoe style. It has a very “man lounging by the fireplace” look to me. Remember not all trends are meant to be followed by all people. I’m sitting this one out (anyone want a pair of size 9.5 blue suede?).

If you like this style and are looking for a new style in flats to work in your wardrobe, check out the many colors/prints available in this Betunia style. As you know, Aerosoles are super comfortable and are great quality. I’ve got my eye on a couple of the boot styles, namely Role Call and Tapenade.

What are your thoughts on the Smoking Slippers? Your style, yay or nay? Please join the convo on Facebook!

  1. I like the shoe, not the name. But they don’t look too great on me either 🙁 So unless I find a pair that I just “can’t live without” I don’t see them in my closet either 🙁
