These Teva Flatforms Are Already On Backorder For Spring
I am beyond obsessed with these Teva flatforms I just spotted at Nordstrom (they're the best of both worlds--the flatform trend and the sporty sandal trend!), and it turns out that I am not the only one--it's not even April yet and they're already backordered! You'll have to wait until at least April 13th to get them, and that's if you order now. If you wait any longer you might miss out completely. They are still available in size 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 (no 5 or 6) and the 10 is the only size that doesn't currently have a backorder (as of press time). Check 'em out: Teva 'Universal' Flatform Sandal ($49.95, back-ordered until April 13)
Teva x Opening Ceremony Is All The Proof We Need That Normcore Isn’t Going Away
Last month, we explained Normcore and what to wear to nail this look. So it's no surprise that the fashion world is getting on board with this trend. Teva sandals, yes the shoes you thought you'd never be caught dead in, are getting a snazzy makeover from Opening Ceremony. But should we be that surprised? After all, sport sandals are making a major comeback for spring and dressing like a Midwestern tourist is "in," so fashionable Tevas seem pretty logical. The Opening Ceremony and Teva Collection features three unisex styles, all including the nylon straps and comfy soles associated with this sandal. There's the “Universal Hurricane,” which is the classic Teva Hurricane sandal updated with gold and silver removable ankle straps. Then there's the brand new "Gladiator Hurricane" which features Teva’s classic patterns on ankle-high sandals. And the last style is a re-issue of a Teva favorite from the archive, the "Psyclon," which has a neoprene upper strap in black and teal. The collection hits Opening Ceremony stores and online May 23rd, prices range from $70-$90. Click the slideshow to see all six sandals from the collex!
