If you’ve been sitting on the fence about the flip-flop trend, Balenciaga just found a way to take the summer essential from beach bum to chic. The luxury brand’s latest footwear release is a classic black sandal covered in soft calfskin leather. Key details include a square-cut toe and heel as well as the Balenciaga logo emblazoned on the thong straps in white. Deriving from the silhouette’s name, Metal 40, the sandals are fit with a 1.5-inch palladium stiletto heel.
The flip-flop inspired sandals are the perfect mix of casual and dressy. Pair them with anything from a white T-shirt and denim shorts to a summer frock. For a night out, complete the look with a bold dress and mini-bag. Get an on-feet and closer look at the sandals in the gallery above, and you can cop a pair of your own online at mytheresa.com for $850 USD.
