Multiple People in My Office Are Buying These £18 ASOS Flats

When you know, you know—and a great deal of the time, the team at Who What Wear UK knows first. We were the publication who detected that Zara polka-dot dress before it went viral, saw the potential in Réalisation way ahead of 2018's slip-skirt phenomenon, predicted just how crazy sales for Topshop's pinafore frocks could go and have probably contributed greatly to Teva sandals hitting the mainstream. Our crystal balls rarely fail us, and right now the vibrations are pointing towards ASOS and a particular style of shoe…

Some ultra-basic £18 Mary Janes may not sound like the thing you'd have at the top of your wish list, but there's something rather wonderful about them. Comfortable, affordable, cute and coming in myriad colours, fabrics and prints, they've already captured the imaginations of flat shoe–loving influencers like Erica Davies (who we often rely on for sensible footwear advice, like with these M&S ballet pumps) but also girls within our office who don't live for heels. Multiple ASOS orders are filtering into WWW HQ as I type…

These could well be the next Topshop strappy sandals, only far more comfortable, classic and useful for wearing into autumn. And talking of autumn, did you know these just so happen to be ticking a rather large trend box for A/W 19's footwear lineup? Keep scrolling to shop the ASOS Mary Janes we're all talking about. (FYI: Some keen shoppers have reported that the sizing comes up small, so if you're in between sizes, it may be worth ordering both and sending back what doesn't quite fit.)
