You know you're a true '90s kid if you still get nostalgic over the music, sitcoms, rom-coms, and fashion of the decade—it feels like the world has changed radically since then. But surprisingly, despite the shifts in culture and development of technology, '90s fashion has made a huge comeback with old-school faves like animal print, tie-dye, and even chunky sandals being resurrected. However, you've got to admit some of your style choices from way back when are pretty cringe-worthy and perhaps not meant to be brought back to life. Thankfully, many of the '90s-inspired pieces we see today have a modern twist. Take, for example, these chic slip-ons from local brand Manila Espadrilles: They give the chunky '90s sandal a fresh update with a rustic rattan footbed. Say hello to the Zoe Sandals!
What's with the Zoe Sandals?
Manila Espadrilles makes Zoe Sandals for both men and women, so anyone can rock this cool vintage-slash-boho style. Each pair features a rattan footbed with two chunky fabric straps complete with buckles on the outer side of each for that old-school aesthetic. These chic pairs would be perfect to wear with elegant ensembles like linen pieces or all-white outfits. You can also use them to contrast against edgy streetwear looks or just to add a little more charm to a plain T-shirt-and-jeans combo. Best part? They're only P900 each—you'll want to cop every color!
