Buckles, zippers and ties, oh my. Perhaps it’s just me, but every time I’m trying to run out the door, I resent trying to remember which hole makes for the best fit on my super skinny ankle strap sandals. And then I have to push the itty bitty buckle prong in there — tres annoying. Thankfully, easy-on, easy-off pairs are coming out in swarms right now, right in time for toe-covering weather. I’m not talking about your standard Repetto fare (though of course, there’s always a place for ballet flats), slip-on style is widening and diversifying like never before. See for yourself.
