Oprah Highly Recommends Two Pairs of Unappealing Yet Popular Sandals

Once upon a time, everyone thought that the Birkenstocks took the cake as the unappealing summer poolside footwear. This year, the cloud slides that went viral on TikTok gave them a run for their money. Even though the slippers can be considered rather unappealing, apparently, they’re quite comfortable. Oprah Winfrey even went so far as to recommend two pairs that she owns and loves.

The last two years of fashion trends and shopping lists were all about comfort. Oprah is continuing the trend by putting two pairs of these trending slippers on the list. She compares walking in these slippers to walking on pillow-like clouds. Ones made by APL and others by Roam, these slides aren’t too much to look at, but they have Oprah’s seal of approval, which means a lot.

Oprah recommends wearing these slides around the house after an intense workout. In her words, they hug the soles of your feet because of their special contouring. These open-toed slippers have a rubber sole and a quilted footbed and strap. Available in dark green, champagne, and blue on Amazon, they’re not very easy to pair with outfits, but it’s all about comfort. Unisex sizing is available so couples can match!

Winfrey says these puffy slides are a dream to wear and that their comfort factor lives up to their name. She’s impressed with the pillowy cushion that feels as if it was sculpted for one’s feet. It’s also important to point out that they’re fully man-made and vegan. The soles are made from Bio Eva which is made of sugar cane, so kudos for using sustainable and renewable materials! The moisture-wicking neoprene footbeds help to keep the feet dry. The pillowy strap was designed for comfort and this model is available on Amazon in the black/tan combo, light sage, and nude.
