MAKES IT ALL THE BETTER TO APPRECIATE SOME FINE EVERYDAY SHOES.
(From left) Sporty rubber-soled slides get a luxurious, ’90s minimalist makeover at Givenchy with extra-wide straps in pure nappa leather. For a pretty yet practical day-to-night option, Salvatore Ferragamo introduces the low-heeled Viva: one of the brand’s trendiest pumps to sport its signature Vara bow, thanks to their streamlined shape and matte nappa leather finish. With subtle hardware and elegant almond-shaped toes, Celine’s Claude knee-high boots – available in suede or calfskin – bring both polish and an effortless rock ’n’ roll edge to breezy day dresses.
An unexpected, knee-high adaptation of sneakers from Longchamp that would score on ease as much as hype: They’re made of mesh and slip on like socks while their sturdy gum soles mean all-day comfort.
Featuring oversized jewelled buttons and ruched slingback straps, these eclectic-meets-glamorous satin and leather thong sandals from Miu Miu wouldn’t look out of place on a neighbourhood grocery run – or your next swish resort getaway.
Proof that everyone should own a pair of flat, strappy black sandals: This croco and snakeskin pair from Hermes with just-right, ribbon-wide straps were worn with anything from tailored suits and LBDs to casual shirt dresses and hot pants on the runway.
From MSGM’s candy-coloured, raffia-trimmed number (background) to Bimba Y Lola’s take in neon orange plastic (foreground), low-heeled, slip-on-and-go sandals bold on ’90s kitsch would appeal to fashion-loving Gen Zs, Gen Xs and boomers alike.
Balenciaga’s grommet-studded, lace-up Corset pumps (foreground) and square-toed Moon booties (background) hail from S/S ’20, which drew from creative director Demna Gvasalia’s observations of what people wear day-to-day. Equal parts industrial and hyper sexy, they’re what many are going to want to be seen in, we say.
Chanel artistic director Virginie Viard’s fuss-free yet flirty and unabashedly French aesthetic encapsulated in a pair of shoes: flat grosgrain Mary Janes inspired by the ones models off duty favoured in the ’60s, given a light lustre from all-over monotone sequins.
