Pillow Shoes—The Latest Trend to Win Over the Fashion Set

Taking a look through the spring collections, there is no denying the influx of comfortable shoe trends from designers. A turn away from the usually dominant runway heels, we spotted styles like cushy thongs, clogs, and a range of house shoes including everything from shaggy logo slippers to colorful platforms to woven leather slides. In their S/S 21 collection, Louis Vuitton offered another take on the cozy shoe with their “pillow boots”—a sock-like ankle boot crafted from quilted nylon and finished with the brand’s iconic monogram logo. Just launched this week, we’re already seeing them everywhere.

The fashion set has been quick to embrace the high-fashion take on a comfy shoe. Pairing them with everything from sweatpants to leggings, nothing could feel more spot-on for 2020 than this cozy take on an It-shoe. Part of a larger movement towards comfortable shoes, we expect to see even more versions popping up for spring. Ahead, see how fashion insiders are already wearing the pillow shoe trend that’s about to go viral.
