I’ve long been adamant about my love for heels of any kind and my general avoidance of flats whenever possible. So, you can imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon a $20 pair of flat strappy sandals on H&M’s website that I not only wanted but had to have. Minimal in shape but loud in terms of their print—the sandals are snakeskin, a trend I’ve already coined the animal print of 2023—the affordable sandals were shockingly alluring to a heel lover like me.
Naturally, I did further research to try and zero in on what exactly it is about H&M’s newest sandals that caught my eye, only to remember that Khaite—one of the fashion set’s most desired labels, not to mention a personal favorite of mine—made a similar pair for spring. Though the H&M pair doesn’t feature as many luxurious details as the pair from Khaite, they have the same overall aesthetic and cost more than $700 less, so my interest in them shouldn’t be all that startling.
I’d be willing to bet I’m not the only anti-flats fashion person with a soft spot for these H&M sandals, meaning the likelihood of them staying in stock is next to none. Shop them while you still can below.
