You’ll often be able to quickly pinpoint an ‘it’ shoe when you start seeing it appear on Instagram. Everywhere. And this season it’s the Bottega Veneta shoe that I’ve been seeing through many a scrolling session — specifically the Stretch sandal.
The strappy square toe heel is such an arresting style because it’s shape is so different to anything we’ve seen of late. It also borrows the V shaped strap from the 90s heeled thong (which is most definitely making a comeback) and echoes the resurgence of that particular decade.
The great thing about this shoe is that it works across various looks, all very different in aesthetic as you can see below. Wear it casually, formally or a little of both and it plays beautifully in all three dress codes.
You’ll have to be ultra resourceful to find a pair due to their popularity and the fact they’ve sold out almost everywhere but never fear, you can bet there are going to be some iterations heading our way, some with a slightly friendlier price tag too!
