There are very few things in life actually worth dying for, but sometimes danger and its magnetic appeal can cloud one's better judgment. Enter the smoking slipper. With a name evoking ideas of forbidden action and a structure uniquely suited for pairing with anything from skinny jeans to full-on Hugh-Hefner-esque robes, this season's proverbial "bad boy" of shoes is alluring in the most satisfying way--the wearer reaps the best of both worlds, as these flats are safe enough to wear without fear of falling but just perplexing enough to feel that rush of bending the rules. Now that makes them a clear, cloudless choice if you ask me.
