This is D3 The Concrete, bringing you fashion from the street.

Being comfortable in fashion is becoming the new “it” factor, especially in the realm of streetwear. Gone are the days, when esteemed fashion icon/designer Karl Lagerfeld said, ”

“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some [sweatpants].”

Now, with the advent of “luxury joggers” (glorified sweatpants), Riri zippered hoodies, and Comfort Colors tees,  it is only logical that I would write an article about the next step toward a fly and comfy lifestyle: the slide. Besides, streetwear is a direct afront to “high fashion” anyway, right?

Take a look at these slide, and if you have others, then shoot me an email here: d3theconcrete@gmail.com OR hit me up on IG, Twitter, or FB here: @d3theconcrete.

  1. Undefeated House Slippers

Anybody that knows me KNOWS that I love Undefeated. This shows you why I do. The detailing and the packaging of this pair of slides is second to none, in my opinion. The bag has a logo hit in the bottom right corner (picture shown). Lined in warm faux fur, these shoes will keep you warm on a cool, spring evening. www.undefeated.com. $48

2. Nike Kawa Slide

This is it. The quintessential slide for ALL people who consider themselves athletes, in reality and in the theater of their minds. Remember in high school, when the varsity basketball players would be getting ready for a game. They didn’t wear shoes, right? They wore these. (Or sometimes these.) If this is the mood you are trying to recapture, then grab these shoes. www.nike.com. $29.99.

 

3. Raised By Wolves Sheepskin Mule Slippers

Every now and then, I like to put my people one to brands that they may not be privy to in the streetwear world. Canadian-based brand Raised By Wolves is an example of a brand that should receive more light and exposure. You know what this shoe reminds me of? Smoking jackets, fireplaces, wooden pipes, and matching pajamas. To put it quite frankly, this is a beautiful piece of footwear. Leather, suede, and sheepskin(!) lining, you cannot beat that combination with a 10 foot pole! www.raisedbywolves.ca. $76.36.

4. Staple Pigeon x SANDALBOYZ

Yo! Who remembers the Staple x Nike “Pigeon Dunks” collaboration? If you do, then you are probably a part of that “Sneakerhead 99%” who did not get their hands on the well sought after pair of kicks. If so, then you may want to try again and get a pair of these sandals. The hashtag/brand #SANDALBOYZ, started by sneaker aficionado trio, Andrew Dharmosetio, Ray Santos, and Fran Marchello (bka Franalations), paired up with Jeff “jeffstaple” Ng, to do this fun brand melding, creating this fun project. Pop Up Shop Location: 126 S La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036. $65.

5. Pali Hawaiian Sandals

Bruh. This is the most comfortable slide you will EVER wear in life. This is not satire. I own a pair of these in black and brown. They call these “Jesus sandals”, probably because of the way they make your feet feel: perfect. So, if you are not able to afford the other slides I mentioned above, get these ASAP! Mark my words, you will not regret it. www.coppinsgifts.com/pahasa.html. $10.99.
