The £50 Zara Sandals the Fashion Crowd Is Starting to Lose It Over

Super-chic blogger Alexis Foreman of Style Memos recently captioned her Instagram photo of her strappy Zara heels "Still loving these heels." And we agree. Zara's quest to create the best strappy heels on the high street began earlier this summer, and it's since been the go-to retailer for Carrie Bradshaw–worthy shoes.

It all started with a gold pair of knotted strappy mid-heels, and now a minimalistic black T-bar option has been produced in a laminated silver version. Thank you, Inditex. In the past few days, we've spied a black iteration on some of Stockholm's coolest street stylers, as well as the original gold style.

We've seen a similar (now–sold out) mule style from Mango take off over the past couple of months, so could this be Europe's next sandal du jour? Do we need to get them in all available colours? Can our week be complete without a pair? It is almost payday after all. Hmm.
