Toes out! Whether or not it's summer where you are, you've no doubt noticed a certain '90s relic that's making its way back (well, apart from the already-popular likes of cardigans and bike shorts, that is): The peeptoe slide sandal stiletto. Over at Bottega Veneta, it's taken the form of square, platypus bill-like snouts that have pretty much given the classic pointed pump a frantic run for its money. We're particularly enamored with its bright ocean blue iteration.
Gucci's take, on the other hand, is a lot more candy-cute and strongly reminiscent of all those microscopic little Barbie shoes we'd always lose as little girls. Bet you won't find one of these patent-leather pretties in a random corner of your childhood living room couch, though.
Not a faint-hearted wallflower? Then don Amina Muaddi's sexy flared stilts, a mod, architechtural take on what's actually a very prim, '50s silhouette, with the recommended white fishnets and party 'til the sunrise.
You could also go the comfy route in Marie Jedig's low-heeled lavender pair, teamed with equally cozy pastel accoutrements like a dandelion sweater and swan-dotted pistachio pants.
And, if you're a die-hard minimalist, these chic, restrained Magda Butryms are your ideal way into the trend.
