So Many Styles of This Ugly "It Shoe" Are Marked Down at Nordstrom — and Prices Start at $12
It's official: "ugly" slide sandals are this summer's reigning shoe. Many versions of the supermodel-approved style have been spotted in the wild lately, from fluffy Uggs to poolside slip-ons to OG Birkenstocks, and new variations only continue to crop up as we approach the thick heat of the warmer months.
Ready to slip into a pair of your own ugly slides? Look no further than Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale, where countless options are up for grabs. If you're in need of a little encouragement to take the plunge on the controversial trend, rest assured style icons like Hailey Bieber, Gwenyth Paltrow, Katie Holmes, Gigi Hadid, Megan Fox, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have already paved the way by wearing this questionable style in place of classically cute sandals.
Taking into account the molded footbeds and quilted, bubbly bands some designs boast — we're looking at you two, Canny Slide Sandal and Kari Slide Sandal — ugly sandals' cushiony, feet-friendly feel sounds far more appealing than the skin-digging straps and unsupportive heels our current shoe racks hold. Plus, when dozens of celebrities silently create a fashion movement, how can we not follow suit?

Plush Slide Slippers with a fuzzy, cloud-like sole that's perfect for wearing around the house, or styles with stronger foundations, like the Dr. Scholl's Pisces Slides that have a cushioned EVA footbed with arch support.
