Julia Fox has had a busy year. She started her (and everyone else’s) 2022 with a bang with a whirlwind six-week relationship with Kanye West. Since then, she’s become a fashion icon in her own right, from opening LaQuan Smith’s NYFW show in a modern-day revenge dress to wearing a (literal) burning coat for a rooftop photo shoot.
When she’s not busy setting the internet aflame, she’s just like us, doing regular human duties like running errands with her one-year-old son in his stroller or installing a new license plate on her Dodge Challenger. To prove it, just take a gander at her go-to choice of footwear for said regular human activities—she’s been spotted wearing the cult-favorite Merrell Hydro Moc clogs all summer long.
As soon as we saw the pics of her sporting the freaky clogs, we were convinced that we needed a pair. Imagine our surprise when we found out that they only cost $55 full-price! This woman has the whole fashion world at her disposal and she goes for a shoe we can all get our hands on. Now that we can get behind. And it gets better still: They are on sale right now! Consider my self-control defeated.
Hydro Mocs are lightweight and comfortable slip-ons that are made of a rubber-like material that’s durable enough to pound the pavement while also being completely waterproof (they are technically water shoes, after all). The Hydro Moc also matches Julia’s signature style thanks to its funky web-like structure. While they’re perfect for running errands or bopping around town in, these practical shoes could even be dressed up when carefully styled—perhaps with a nap dress or (in true Julia fashion) with low-rise jeans and a T-shirt or tank. Either way, please do be sure to bring this energy to your Hydro Moc look:
Julia’s choice of Hydro Moc was black, but the burgundy and pomelo have the best deal on Merrell’s site right now for $41. Those colors come in the ‘BLOOM™’ variety, meaning that they were made of 10 percent algae, cleaning up green water in the process, one of Merrell’s sustainability initiatives. Also note that the Hydro Moc is pretty generously sized to make it easy to slip on and off, so if you wear a half size, we recommend sizing down to the smaller whole size.
