8 Flat-Shoe Trends Zara’s Doing Better Than Anywhere Else Right Now

I won't speak for my colleagues, but I've always thought that Zara's shoes are the best on the high street—at least, those that fall under the £100 price bracket. Not only does the brand manage to hone in on the most appealing trends each season, but I've genuinely bought some of my most-worn pairs from the retailer—pairs I still wear to this day. I would always advocate buying quality designs that last, but I have found that, with a discerning eye, you can find pieces that really have value and that are built to last at the brand.

This week, I was in search of a new pair of shoes for an upcoming holiday so, naturally, given my past successes, Zara was on my hit list of brands to browse. I filtered my search to flat shoes, as that's all I'm really interested in 1) right now and 2) for warmer temperatures. After a few seconds of on-site buffering, I was soon presented with some of the best flat shoes I'd seen so far in my search.

Upon further inspection, it became very clear that Zara has invested a lot in its flat-shoe category this season, With over 250 pairs spanning ballet flats and loafers to strappy sandals and lightweight mules, the more I scrolled, the more shoes I saw that I wanted. It's times like this that I'm grateful to have willpower, because I could have easily added a dozen pairs to my basket.

Although I settled on a pair of very classic black sandals, I was struck by the chicness of many other shoes I saw. So, I thought I'd put this time to good use by selecting the findest Zara flat-shoe trends for you to peruse at leisure.
