While we love a fun microtrend as much as anyone, sometimes you can't beat those classic investment pieces that will quite simply never die. One of these items is a pair of leather slide sandals, and it seems that shoppers can't get enough of these minimal, elegant sandals. Zara's £26 crossover sandals have been a fashion-crowd favourite, and Dune's Loupes are so popular they have been restocked so many times that we have lost count.
Last summer, these were the best seller on Dune, and one out of every six tags on Dune's Instagram page at the time featured a pair of Loupes. At first, they were available in just tan, black and white, and now they are also in every colour you could wish for. It's no wonder they're available in more hues, as the reviews online heap praise on the sandals. Comments such as "I bought these after seeing many of the Instagram bloggers talking about how fantastic they were and I found them to be as good as they said" and "So comfortable. They will go with everything. I can’t wait for warmer weather" are just a couple of the endorsements.
While you can't help draw comparisons to Hermès's iconic Oran Sandals, which are quite simply the Rolls-Royce of sandals (the £510 sandals have a more defined H across the strap), these are at a lower price of £90. (Although, watch out for some colours available for half price in the sale.) Keep scrolling to shop Dune's Loupe leather slides, and see some of the high-street hero's other key sandal styles.
