Bella Hadid's shoe staple is hit or miss but taking over the internet

It's a thing now, apparently.

Ugly clothing is in right now and like it or not, it's something we're definitely seeing a lot more of.


Whether it's a bulky bag or an old lady cardigan, in some cases the uglier something seems in today's world, the more fashionable it is.

And this is especially true when it comes to shoes. Think of those chunky Balenciaga's everyone wanted or even the fact that Crocs have made a comeback - ugly shoes are hot.

Bella Hadid is no stranger to this trend and her latest off duty shoe style is exactly that. Sporting Hoka Hoparas, she has redefined what it means to make an ugly shoe look good.

While most people are under the impression that Bella herself could make anything look good, even these are a hard one to pull off.


Retailing for €125, these shoes look as if a grandad's sandal and a marathon runner's shoes had a baby. With cutouts galore, it's considered street style chic.

Wearing the shoes a number of times in Paris during Paris Fashion Week, Bella was seen sporting them as she left the Balenciaga show, again stepping out in them on a night out.

While they may not be everybody's cup of tea, they are something we're seeing a lot more of. Think back to the rugged Salomon sneakers and Vibram Five Fingers toe shoes, these type of footwear are the new "it" thing and it looks like they're here to stay.


And even when it comes to less high fashion brands, think Birkenstocks and Tevas, staple brands that consistently come out with these types of shoe.

But let's talk logistics with these shoes, they're versatile. Say what you want about them, but they can go with a lot of looks. Breathable for summer but enough coverage for autumn and spring, they're an almost all year round shoe. While Bella may be able to wear them in a warmer Californian winter, we wouldn't recommend trying them out during an Irish one.
