Unconventional shoes. You know them. That’s what we usually call those chunky ”dad” sandals that tourists sometimes wear with socks (why?) Well, those footwear pieces do promise comfort but are often found severely lacking in style.
However, as the last few years have taught us, comfort is a big thing. But so is style for some of us! Lately, the trend of the unconventional shoe has re-emerged. Only, it does not seem so unconventional anymore. Brands like Paris-born Arizona Love have let their creativity flourish and rethought designs and details that make a beautiful difference on chunky soles. Perhaps they were reborn to a beauty from a beast after all?
Below you can find some of our favourite choices for several style types from the Arizona Love collection
Classic with a twist. This design encapsulates both a wild and adventurous spirit by using the beloved leopard print as primary and also a hippie-bandana vibe through the red detail. As with all the sandals in their collection, Arizona Love uses the black sole as its basic canvas on which it builds their bold yet pretty shoes on.

She Wore Green Velvet
Royal green and the undeniably luxurious feel of velvet. The ”unconventional shoes” seem almost preppy now. The Arizona Love sandals may be called ”trekky” but they surely do not look typically so.
