Put your best foot forward in these airy and girly shoes


If there’s one 80s trend we are happy about making a comeback then it is the slingback sandals – they are bare, sexy, and flirtatious. We hear that they have been slightly less favoured untill now but they are back as the hottest trend of the summer and we are here to make your slingback experience way more comfortable and of course hotter. Take a look at our top picks for some feet loving!

Mercedes Castillo Kinslee Patent Leather Pumps | Buy Now

The rains are upon us but does that mean that we have to quit wearing our heels? Absolutely not! These Mercedes Castillo slingback Kinslee pumps are water-resistant and can withstand drizzling. We also love the oh-so-soft pink-toned beige colourway. What makes this ooze modernity and sets it apart from the rest is the high-vamp cut and stamped stiletto heels. While the heel is a little daring, best part is the comfort which comes with the wide slingback straps (It won’t dig into your ankles). And they have even concealed the stretch inserts, isn’t that amazing?

Dior J’Adior Slingback Pump | Buy Now

You have seen them on Gossip Girl, Sex and the City, and on every other it-girl in town. We all have lusted after them at a point and this summer we don’t mind sparing a rather large chunk of our paychecks for this particular pair. The flat bow spells out “I adore you” in French and we echo the sentiment. Try the burgundy slingback pump in technical canvas, embroidered ribbon, lambskin covered 6.5 cm comma heel for a red-hot look. The shoe is full of surprise symbols with Christian Dior’s favourite star accessory on the leather sole. If you don’t mind shaving off a few inches from your height then you can even consider the flat version. We are eyeing the one in a houndstooth print. It’s a unique twist on the classic J’Adior shoes! Whichever one you go for, the shoes are sure to feel like a gift-wrap for your feet!
