the hottest sandal style this spring? it’s sans platform or frills and has two simple leather bands and a closed heel. celine, of course, does it best (first launched with phoebe philo’s debut collection in 2009, it’s made a comeback this spring), but cole-haan and zara have some more affordable (and colorful) options.
celine ankle strap sandal with mirrored heel, available at celine madison avenue and bal harbour
cole haan “air mirella” sandal (black and yellow/tan, plus 2 other colors)
zara banded sandal (comes in 3 colors)
