We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Zara is really overwhelming, even for the most experienced shopper. It's especially overwhelming if you're a fan of the store's shoes (raises hand). There is perhaps no strong category among Zara's dozens than shoes, and that's saying a lot. In our opinion, the best way to narrow down the offerings is to let the latest trends guide us. We've found that the most directional shoes are often the first to sell out, and it's always a good idea to stick to a low price point when shopping for very trend-driven footwear. Which is why we sought out the help of trend experts for this Zara shoe edit.
