Julia Fox has had a busy year. She started her 2022 (and everyone else’s) with a bang with six-week relationship with Kanye West. Since then, she became a fashion icon in her own right, right from the moment she opened LaQuan Smith’s NYFW Program wear a modern day revenge dress to wear a (literally) burning jacket for a rooftop photo shoot.
When she’s not busy burning up the internet, she’s just like us, doing normal human chores like running errands with her one-year-old son in his stroller or put a new license plate on her Dodge Challenger. To prove it, just take a quick look at her go-to footwear choices for regular human activities — she’s been spotted wearing her favorite outfit. Merrell Hydro Moc wear clogs all summer.
As soon as we saw pictures of her wearing monstrous clogs, we believed we needed a pair. Imagine our surprise to find out that they only cost Full price $55! This woman has a whole world of fashion at her disposal and she wears a pair of shoes that we can all get our hands on. The current that we can get behind. And it’s still better: They’re on sale right now! Looks like my self-control has been defeated.
Hydro Mocs are lightweight and comfortable skates made of rubber-like materials that are durable enough to hit the pavement while also being completely waterproof (they’re waterproof shoes, after all). Hydro Moc also fits Julia’s signature style thanks to its fun web-like structure. While they’re perfect for running errands or walking around town, these practical shoes can even be worn when styled with care — perhaps with nap dress or (in true Julia style) with low-rise jeans and T-shirt or tanks. Either way, make sure to bring this energy into your Water Wood aspect:
Julia’s choice of Water Wood is black, but Red and grapefruit has the best deal on Merrell’s site right now for $41. Those colors are of the ‘BLOOM™’ category, which means they’re made from 10% algae, which cleans the water green in the process, one of Merrell’s sustainability initiatives. Please also note that the Thuy Moc is quite generous in size for easy putting on and taking off, so if you’re wearing a half size, we recommend reducing the size to the full size smaller.
