PopSocket Sneakers Now Exist And, Yes, We Would 100 Percent Wear Them

This fall, take ergonomics, but make it fashion. There are two ways you can do this: Go big, like Balenciaga's platform Crocs; or go small, like the sensible spring-coil heel Christopher Kane sent down his AW18 runway during London Fashion Week. Both are very much A Decision™, but, hey, once Rihanna's caught rocking them, everyone will want a pair.

So be ahead of the trend. Set yourself a Google alert for when these Christopher Kane sneakers hit the market. They're designed with Z-CoiL's spring heel technology that, according to Z-CoiL's site, helps reduce back, neck, and foot pain through its shock-absorbing heel cushion. Christopher Kane bedazzled the front and added some of-the-moment velcro ties, which will likely raise the OG's $300 price point to something, like, $500 because glitter, proper posture, and ease come at a price. 

That's a small sum to pay for a party in the front, hoary comfort in the back situation. I haven't tried a pair myself but like the PopSockets they so closely resemble—you know, the circle contraptions people attach to the back of their phones?—I'm positive I will be convinced of their absolute necessity the moment I do. And if all else fails, there's always thigh-high UGG boots to slip on.
