Minimalist black sandals from the 90s are making a comeback

Step into the world of chic minimalism where minimalist black sandals, mules with sculptural heels, and slender-strapped wonders reign supreme. While trends may come and go, the allure of minimalist sandals remains unwavering, commanding attention on our screens, in our hearts, and within our closets. Despite the surge of “ugly shoe” phenomena and sporty sandals, the timeless appeal of a simple yet elegant sandal endures.

These understated beauties, barely visible beneath evening gowns or tailored trousers, epitomise an aesthetic that celebrates clean lines, essential designs, and effortless grace. Season after season, they captivate (and captivate again) with their subtle sophistication.
