When the warm weather comes around, Katie Holmes can often be spotted wearing the ugly sandals everyone loves to hate. But the truth is, we don't mind and actually spent much of the last month stocking up on Birkenstocks for a fraction of the price at the latest Gilt sale.

But if you're a huge fan of Holmes's style and not necessarily ready to jump on the Birkenstocks bandwagon yet, she was just spotted out in another comfortable shoe trend that's a bit more elevated and far less controversial: white loafers.

Of course, Holmes wore an expensive take of the comeback comfortable shoe trend by Gucci while wearing her go-to Evolvetogether face mask. Holmes's designer Brixton loafers cost under $1,000, but they are still pricey at $830. They're also a favorite amongst Hollywood, and everyone from Dakota Johnson to Selena Gomez owns a pair of the classic shoe. Thankfully Gucci isn't the only one making them, and you can easily score a nearly identical pair on Amazon for as little as $27.

There are also plenty of options on Nordstrom for under $100. Loafers are having a big moment in 2021, and considering they're a classic silhouette that isn't too trendy, buying a pair is basically an investment. A white pair is also the perfect alternative to white sneakers if you want to feel a little more dressed up. And if you choose these instead of Birkenstocks, you're still channeling Katie Holmes without enraging half the internet. It's a win-win.
