Although summer 2019 has seen its fair share of unexpected shoe sightings — read: Chrissy Teigen in slouchy suede boots, Irina Shayk in Doc Martens, and Bella Hadid in knee-high leather boots, all in the middle of July, mind you — there's one warm-weather footwear pick that simply can't be beat this time of year: sandals. And Selena Gomez's favorite pair, which she was spotted wearing multiple times during her Italian getaway, are not only still available to shop, but they're on sale. Oh, and they're quite cute, too.
Gomez, along with a slew of other celebs, has been spending her summer holiday in the picturesque country of Italy (can you really blame them?). The The Dead Don't Die actor hopped on a plane and flew a good 6,500 miles from sunny L.A. to equally-sunny Capri in Italy's Bay of Naples to ring in her 27th birthday with her closest friends and family in tow. By the looks of some of the photos that have surfaced from her vacation, it's safe to say the singer has nailed the sun-kissed and refined Italian aesthetic to a T.
Flowy, floor-grazing dresses in neutral colors have been Gomez's go-to all week long. She was first seen sporting an olive-green number from Zara, then a creamy cotton one by Three Graces; and most recently, a linen maxi in a mood-boosting yellow hue. Aside from her affinity for maxi-length frocks, chic straw hats, and her gold Jennifer Fisher hoops, the newly-turned 27-year-old has also been playing favorites with a particular pair of sandals during her trip: the Lefki Block by Ancient Greek Sandals.
Gomez has been seen wearing this particular style on July 23 and then again on July 24 — and she's very likely to keep reaching for them in the coming days because they're extremely versatile.
The actor's favorite sandals feature light-brown straps and a wooden block heel. They're crafted by skilled artisans in Greece and, according to the product description, the gold-winged buckle detailing is actually inspired by "the Greek myth of Hermes, son of Zeus and messenger of the Gods, and the shoemaker who crafted his flying sandals." Pretty cool, no?
In other words, the shoes couldn't be a more fitting choice for Gomez, who's mastered the Roman goddess aesthetic in the few short days she's been in Europe. Now, you, too, can channel the singer's vacation style by shopping her favorite sandals, which are currently on sale, below.
