If you're following the current fashion revival train, you'll be well aware of the fact that '90s trends are still reigning supreme in the celebrity street style game. The latest piece to make a comeback from the aforementioned decade? Thong heels.
Recently spotted on Kim Kardashian West, thong heels are, as Vogue puts it best, quite possibly the "world’s sexiest sandals," especially when you consider current footwear trends—e.g., Birkenstocks, dad sneakers, and Crocs. And as the name suggests, the sandals are part flip-flop, part heel, offering up (quite literally) a more elevated take on the classic, often-polarizing, beach shoes.
Not sure how to wear the unique sandals? Style them à la Kardashian West with cool, sporty pieces—bike shorts, sports bra, and an oversize sweatshirt. But to be honest, thong heels lend themselves well to any outfit. So whether you're feeling a pair of jeans or a springtime dress, slip into the throwback sandal with confidence (and freshly painted toes) for a statement-making look. Read on to see Kardashian West wearing the '90s sandals, and then shop a few styles currently available.
