Just like Us! On days when Sophie Turner needs to give her feet a rest from high heels and well, life, the 23-year-old adopts the socks and sandals look.

But, let’s be clear on one thing: the Game of Thrones actress isn’t trying to make socks and sandals a new fashion trend, as per her recent clap back against Page Six on Twitter.

Turner responded to a Page Six headline that read, “Sophie Turner is attempting to make this controversial trend happen.” In the article, the site referenced paparazzi shots showcasing her wearing the aforementioned socks and slides combo while doing errands in New York City.

Turner shut down criticism surrounding her footwear decision in her Tweet. “Nah, we’ve all been taking out the trash like this for years and you know it. I’m not trying to make anything happen other than giving my feet some much needed TLC.”

Another commented, “HOW DARE YOU DO SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE DOES ALL THE TIME SOPHIE.”

While Turner’s made it known that she isn’t trying to make socks and sandals a trend per say, we do admit that this whole thing makes us feel inspired to break out our Adidas Adilette slides and bike shorts.
