About a year ago we shared our love of Zara heels with the world on Patches and Flash with this black lace up number that is still going strong. It’s definitely a testament to the quality of the heels as they’ve definitely been worn over and over without so much as a tear or major scuff. Plus they’re actually quite comfortable as far as heels go – the laces helping to provide adequate ankle support if you’re worried about that kind of thing (being two people heavily prone to clumsiness, it’s up there on our check-list).
So naturally, a year older and wiser, we’ve gone back for more and updated our Zara lace up heels collection. Now, suede is shaping up to be a major trend this spring and summer, with most high street shops offering pieces like suede vests, jackets and skirts. Miss Selfridge do an awesome suede skirt for around £60 which we’ve definitely got our eye on (a good price for real suede). Anyway, we digress. We love the way Zara’s designers have incorporated the suede trend into this pair of lace up heels. The extra lace means you can tie them up around your legs a few more times adding a bit of a gladiator sandal effect – which is also a big trend this summer.
The soft material is super comfortable and we’d say they’d even be perfect for throwing on during the daytime with a pair of Jeans and a T-shirt. The gladiator feel of the heels also definitely lends itself well to flowy Grecian style skirts or dresses – if only the British weather would catch up with our shopping habits and show us some sun already (seriously, it’s April!). Either way they’re a great pair of heels and Zara has definitely brought some strong shoe game this season – we’ve also got our eye on something like these gladiator sandals which are quite highest the highest ones we’ve ever seen (seriously, these would be thigh high on two relatively short people like us). Alas, so many shoes and an increasingly aggravated wallet – until next pay day of course!
**As we posted this during the Zara sale, these shoes are completely sold out! Check out these alternatives from missguided – they’re close dupes for the Aquazurra lace up heels as loved by Kim Kardashian! 🙂
