When you're a wealthy famous person, you get anything you want. When you're a Jenner/Kardashian, you get anything you want and more. So, when one of the Kardashian clan elects to wear something relatively normal, it's worth a second look.
Kendall Jenner, the world's highest-paid model that she is, could be wearing nothin' but expensive, exclusive garms should she so decide to.
And yet, here she is strolling around a Whole Foods parking lot in a pair of adidas Samba sneakers! What cheek!
Now, it's obviously not crazy to see rich people flexing normal clothing, especially when it comes to footwear.
Kanye's $43 Met Gala Dickies jacket is a great example but even the Samba itself has become a sort of egalitarian rallying cry, having been tacitly approved by folks as famously stylish as Rihanna and A$AP Rocky.
It's kind of the new-age Onitsuka Tiger in a sense, whereas that low-profile trainer was a go-to steppin' out shoe for quietly stylish folks from a different generation and the Samba — which is of the same era, mind you — has been adopted by folks epitomizing tastefully understated fashion of today.
In fact, Jenner's off-the-runway looks encapsulate this ethos just as well as any other off-duty model.
In that sense, there's no one better than Jenner to epitomize the pairing of a giant tote, green tank, and form-fitting skirt with ultra-normal Sambas.
Kendall Jenner ain't reinventing the wheel but, like the humble Samba itself, there's nothing wrong with doing simple stuff super well.
