This Gigi Hadid-Approved Shoe Is Like Birkenstocks, But Better
Gigi Hadid never fails to school us on need-to-know fashions, from affordable, under-the-radar brands to micro trends like jorts. The latest wardrobe must-have that she recently put on our radar is the M.Gemi Matilde Due slides. Of course, the cozy cork-sole sandals sold out nearly instantly after photos of Hadid wearing them started to circulate. But finally, the time has come for those who missed out to get their hands—or I guess I should really say feet—on a pair.
Move fast and you might be able to preorder Hadid’s white Matilde Due slides. It’s only being produced in small batches, of course, because founder Maria Gangemi only works with highly skilled Italian artisans in family-owned workshops to make by hand all shoes, handbags, and leather goods crafted under the M.Gemi brand, which was founded in 2015.
If you’re into darker colorways (because it’s certainly not easy to keep a white shoe clean), the label also released the shoe in a peanut-butter-brown hue and a sleek matte black tone. Since cooler fall temperatures will be here before we know it, the M.Gemi Matilde Due slides are also up for grabs once again with cozy shearling-lined footbeds.
