Nude Shoes: from Crocs to Flops

Nude Shoes: from Crocs to Flops
Guy Brighton

Is your green side tempting you to pick up a pair of florescent Crocs? Think again, Dopie has a new solution for those desiring a lightweight, minimalist shoe that’s designed to both take some punishment and make a sustainability statement. Mix one part Ninja-Turtle foot with one part futuristic Buddhist monk and you’ve got a good idea of the aesthetic.

Dopie shoes are designed by Matthew Harrison and Cian Plumbe; together they run Studiohead, a design studio in Stoke Newtingon, London. The eco friendly flip flops have been selling exceptionally well in London, says Great Green Goods, as they’re priced at a mere £30.00.

Thankfully, Dopies look poised to replace Crocs as the eco-trendy footwear of choice. They’re a great answer to the bulky, gardener-esque vibe of Crocs; as well as provide a super-minimalist alternative to the overstated image. Wear them with or without the strap, skate in them, get them wet, dirty, whatever. They might not be the prettiest shoes on the block, but they’re sure the most naked. If the trend catches, grab a pair at Wal-Mart. Till then, check Terraplana.
