The Babouche, 2016’s New It Shoe

Written by Souad El Mghari

UK fashion magazine; Grazia has lately unveiled the must-have It Shoe for the year 2016, and it’s non-other than Moroccan original, the Babouche.

Extremely comfortable and laid-back, according to Grazia UK, the Babouche is all set to take over the world of trendy footwear, by becoming the It Shoe for 2016. Following the strong popularity that the likes of the Birkenstocks’ sandals, or the furry slippers had for the last couple of years, this originally Moroccan fashion staple has already started taking the style world by storm.

High-end fashion brands as Céline, Victoria Beckham, Opening Ceremony and Narciso Rodriguez have actually already gotten their designing hands on these comfy beauties, and that by including them in their pre-fall collections (photos below).

I have to say that we kind of seen this one coming (in our previous article: A must-have: The revisited Moroccan mules), since so many fashion personalities have been making mandatory stops in Moroccan bazaars and souks whenever they came for a visit mostly to Marrakech, and made it a point to flaunt their locally bought babouches on social media.
