Pretty Slip On Shoes For Men

Updated on October 13, 2009

Slip on shoes are favored by women because they are pretty enough to wear out and about in the world, and yet still comfortable, casual and easy to put on. In fact, you could argue that for a woman faced with the prospect of an entire day tottering about in a world suddenly comprised entirely of subway grates, flat slip on shoes are like manna from heaven for your feet.

Flat shoes have come into fashion lately, icons such as Lily Allen, Condoleeza Rice and Mother Theresa have all been seen rocking these shoes. (Okay, perhaps the last two not so much, I'm not even sure that Mother Theresa is still alive right now. Wow. A Google search reveals that she died in 1997. 1997. That was over 12 years ago. It seems like just yesterday I forgot that she died. Huh. How odd.)

One caveat here: Crocs do not count. A great many witty people have written on the subject of crocs, so I will refrain from adding my voice, but I will quote others. Maddox, from the best page in the universe had this to say:

“When I see people wearing Crocs, I know immediately that we have nothing in common, and that we could never be friends or have any meaningful kind of relationship. They come in every color imaginable yet look bad with every other article of clothing ever created. The only thing that goes with Crocs is social ostracism. “

And that's why you shouldn't wear crocs.

(Of course, I personally wouldn't ostracize anyone because of their footwear, that would be completely hypocritical given the content of my articles. But other people would. Gee, some other people are jerks.)

You should however, wear pretty gem encrusted slip on slip ons, or hand painted slip ons, or slip ons with pink hearts all over them. The beauty of the women's slip on shoe is that it is indistinguishable in many respects from a man's slip on shoe. Nobody is going to be any the wiser, apart from you, and that will make you feel tingly inside and save you the tiresome ritual of avoiding accusatory stares and having a thinly veiled conversation about “proper business attire” with your boss.

Oh, and did I mention that they're comfortable? Because they are. Incredibly. Not quite as comfortable as Micheal Jordan air Nike shoes from the 80's, but lets not dwell on the past.

I've included a whole range of pretty slip on shoes down the side of the page, so feast your eyes. Some of them may even be edible (hemp shoes, I'm looking at you.)

      Womens shoes tick me off....

      So many pretty styles just like lingerie except one major glaring difference....SIZING. Because I wear a larger sized mens shoe, womens shoes that fit in any style are severely limited and generally not available to me.

      I do have a couple pairs of ladies running shoes and I love them to death, I was extremely lucky to find them.
