The Wörishofer: Granny Chic or Fashion Geek?

Louboutin lovers and Ferragamo fetishists might want to turn away now. The latest footwear trend amongst New York's celebs and hipsters is none other than the humble Wörishofer. Perhaps better known a 'those orthopedic sandals designed for grandmas' Wörishofers have found their way on to some pretty A-list feet of late, including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michelle Williams and Kirsten Dunst.

Available in a range of styles and colours, with a cork wedge heel, the ultra comfortable Wörishofer has been around for about 70 years but only recently has it gained fashion-league status.

Now, over at FashionJunkie Towers, we do like unexpected new trends and we applaud health-conscious style. But is this all just a step too far? The Great Birkenstock Revival of 2003 (who could forget it?) was something of a fashion curveball, but we went with it. Similarly the attack of the Croc - yes it was ugly but there was comedy value to be had. But Wörishofers? We may take some persuading...

Wörishofers are now available in the UK exclusively from Love Those Shoes, starting at a bargainous £55. So if you think you've got what it takes to worship the Wörishofer, you'd better get clicking.
