It's the worst feeling; You see something all over Instagram, but it's entirely sold out. If you weren't able to get your hands on a pair of those Bottega Veneta Stretch Shoes after they made their debut for Pre-Fall 2019, run, don't walk because the luxury brand has just announced a highly anticipated re-release during New York Fashion Week — seeming to collectively answer everyone's prayers.
Revered for its age-old leather technique, known to the masses as Intrecciato, Bottega Veneta focuses on fine Italian craftsmanship and creating forever pieces that are both timeless yet incredibly relevant. Now, with the arrival of designer Daniel Lee, who premiered his first collection for the brand earlier this year, the style set's undying obsession with the brand's collection of accessories shows no sign of stopping. The result: It's nearly impossible to snag a pair of the brand's most popular designs for yourself.
It seems Bottega Veneta has heard your requests, as these in-demand designs are now available exclusively at the Italian house's New York Maison. The latest drop includes two highly coveted Stretch styles: the netted mesh and chain-embellished pumps, $890, and the strappy square-toed sandals, $720. Both sent the industry into a frenzy upon walking down the runway and have been one of this season's most popular designs ever since. They're crafted with the same chic clean lines found on the label's Pouch clutch, so it comes as no surprise that this too has all the makings to amass a cult following. Adding to its luxe appeal, the close-toed option is detailed with a delicate gold chain (playing into the season's anklet trend). Both styles sit on a gripped gum sole and feature the collection's sharply squared silhouette, which gives them an undeniable '90s feel.
You already know, it's now nearly impossible to scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing any one of your favorite influencers donning the latest color-way. However, in the latest release, the brand opted to keep the offering a bit more practical, bringing back the black mesh and optic white leather — which, in turn, justifies the price point as they are the investment buy that will work hard in just about any wardrobe.
Cementing its place as the latest phenomena to take the industry by storm, it's the impeccable craftsmanship and versatility that lend to its popularity. They're often seen accompanying well-tailored sets, but work just as well with relaxed denim and billowy frocks. This interchangeability makes their constant sold-out status a much more difficult pill to swallow — until now.
Not in New York, or can't bring yourself to get of out the house to brave the inevitable lines? Scroll ahead to find similar styles from the brand that are (or will be) available on the website and allow you to shop from the comfort of wherever you are. Now you'll be able to sport the shoe worn around the world (and all over Instagram).
