The Range: Trendy Plexi Flats

Did you know that clear-plastic shoes are on trend this season?  Neither did I until I spotted them on Jean’s Instagram.  But, apparently, they are a very fashion forward choice.  Here are some flats that let you bring this trend into your business casual workplace.

Corner Office 

Gianvito Rossi Plexi Ballerinas ($695)

Cubicle Farm

Black Suede Sarina Flat ($195)

Front Desk

Dener Ladies Transparent Slip Shoes ($15)

    I am loving this trend. Oh, there isn’t a link for the front desk that I can see.

    Oh, why? Are these like the grown-up office appropriate version of jellies? I just envision my feet sweating to death and/or getting weird blisters. Why not just wear d’orsay flats? I do appreciate the effort you made to find it in various price points though!! It’s just not for me.

      Totally agree on sweating. That plastic doesn’t breathe and I don’t want beads of sweat or obvious signs of wetness on the plastic. Ick.

      All understandable points, but for casual Friday or for something fun – I’m in to try them

      I knew when I posted these that they wouldn’t be for everyone. But I thought it might be a fun alternative for women who work in creative fields.

        Personally – I like seeing posts like this that some people are like “Yes!” and others are “No!”. That’s part of what makes fashion fun, IMO.

          Totally agreed! Normally these wouldn’t be my thing, but after seeing them on ExtraPetite (Jean), I tried a pair of pumps and I’m loving the trend. But definitely get that they don’t work for everyone…

      I too had an immediate flashback to the massive blisters I got from jellies when I was oh I don’t know, 4 maybe? Clearly a formative experience. Yet another trend I will be sitting out on (see also, ruffles, when will they end).

      The biomechanics of my feet mean that I can’t wear most sandals or d’orsay flats. These look like a summery alternative to being stuck in full ballet flats.Having lived through jelly shoes the first time, I likely won’t try them, but I can see why there might be a place for them.

    Sorry, nope. Never will these ever enter my closet.

    I like the style but my feet are usually in a rather mangled state and nobody needs to see that! 🙂

      This is how I feel, too, and why I get pedicures, but in these Cinderella-esque closed-toe slippers, no one would even see my pedicure!

      No, thanks, but have fun, sweet young things!

    I have to be honest. Just the thought of these types of shoes skeeves me out. Seeing sweaty feet and toes squished against the clear material turns my stomach. I mean, looking at them like this (empty with no feet) they DO look pretty. But sweaty feet ruins the look for me.

    I had a pair of these transparent shoes 25 years ago as a high school freshman. Cue the humiliating flashback to them FOGGING UP and the cute boy in class loudly pointing it out. Ugh.

    What’s the difference between the first choice and the third??

      I think they’re basically the same shoe, just at different price points.
