Call it the French flip-flop

There was the summer of Keds, the summer of Supergas, the summer of velcro Reebok high-tops, and in Paris this is the summer of the Bensimon. Ked-like, these simple canvas shoes have rubber toe caps and come in lots of pastels and at least two styles — one is a slip-on, the other a lace-up. Though the chic way to wear the lace-ups is sans laces.

They look great with skirts or cropped pants — just think of them as the French take on the now-ubiquitous flip-flop.
