Prada’s logo slingback first debuted in the brand’s S/S 21 show and instantly became a viral success. From the zesty neon orange to the demure and wearable black leather iteration, the unexpected smash hit spawned a legion of copycats (and a particularly good Miu Miu loafer), and now, you can find a pair in the wardrobes of fashion editors and influencers everywhere.
This season, the slingback comes in brushed leather, nude and mirror silver (destined for a viral moment) with an on-trend metal toe, but the spring pastels (mint, yellow and powder blue) are still available, so there’s a pair for every mood. And honestly, I’m just happy to back any shoe trend that doesn’t encourage blisters, so thank you, Prada, for an It shoe that anyone can wear. Whether you dress them up for a party, dress them down with socks, or even wear them to the office, these shoes are already iconic, and I can’t stop thinking about them. Now where did I put my credit card?
