If you thought that Zara dress was popular...
Every once in a while, Zara comes out with a product that everyone—and we mean literally everyone—ends up agreeing upon. A few years ago it was that chambray ruffled minidress, last year it was that polka dot midi dress and this year, it's the cream knitted co-ord that's just perfect for lounging in. But as popular items come and go, there's one item that comes back season after season that it may as well as be considered as a Zara basic: a pair of expensive-looking crossover strap leather sliders.
First introduced to its stores in summer of 2018, these Zara slides became an instant hit amongst Instagram-cool-girls thus cementing their way as the must-have Zara item of summer 2018. Fast forward 12 months and thanks to their cult status, Zara decided to bring the sandals back for summer 2019 - except this time in an array of new colourways and textures. And guess what? They sold out faster than tickets to a One Direction reunion tour.
It was next to impossible to scroll through your Instagram feed without spotting a pair of these Zara sandals – and it's not hard to see why. An extremely affordable €29.95 price-tag, flat enough that you can walk anywhere in them but not so flat that you've zero support and beautiful crisscrossed leather detailing. Not to mention the fact it's a pretty good dupe for the fashion favourite YSL Nu Pieds sandal. We've seen the pair styled with everything from a satin slip skirt and knotted tee to a plethora of throw-on-go floral dresses.
Now, they're back again for one more summer. Perhaps it's because Zara knew we could all do with a little cheering up or maybe it's because of their guaranteed sell-out status, whatever the reason, we're happy to announce that the leather crisscross sandals are BACK. But you've got to act fast. If the past two years are anything to go by, these Zara slides will sell out and they'll sell out fast. Trust us, even if you've not worn shoes in over ten weeks - these are worth the purchase. They might even get you out of our slipper socks.
