This Shoe Trend Is Taking Over

With a surplus of slides and mules on the market, relaxed silhouettes are showing no signs of slowing down. No complaints here, as they’re so easy to wear. And just when we thought we’d seen every version of this trend, another comfy model comes into focus: slingbacks. Sure, they bring a bit of ’80s nostalgia, but modern iterations are feeling entirely fresh in modest heel heights that range from block shapes to itty-bitty kittens. And now that they’re packaged in everything from fail-safe neutrals to poppy prints to patent finishes, slingbacks are proving to be a style for just about everyone. Get in on the shoe that will transition you from summer to fall seamlessly—check out our edit ahead.
