When we heard about one of the hottest spring shoe trends, we had to talk about it.

So-called "ugly" shoes are all the rage.

Women from New York to Paris are wearing these flat sandals.

And it's not just for comfort.

Ugly shoes with velcro and chunky soles are making a statement.

Apparently, stiletto heels just look too old-lady now, and ugly shoes give the message that we're not trying too hard.

So how do you pull this look off?

He calls them "earthy sandals." See how he pairs them with suits.
