Every season, there’s one designer item that you start seeing everywhere. Celebrities love it, every Fashion Week attendee will be wearing it, and soon enough the high street will recreate it.
The item in question this season? Prada’s brushed leather slingback pumps.
Complete with the triangle Prada logo, pointed shape and a comma heel, the design is an updated version of the designer’s 90s shoe, brought into 2022 with a rubber shell sole and tread.
I was browsing COS recently, when I came across a killer pair of kitten heels that reminded me of the Prada pair. While the tongue-shape is reminiscent of a loafer, the comma heel is super similar and the glossy leather is identical too.
Prada’s kitten heels come in at £890, with colour options including silver, white, pastel pink, green and blue, as well as black. The designer is offering a huge variety of style options though, with wedge heels and similar tongue-shaped uppers to the aforementioned high street version.
If you’re working with a smaller budget (aren’t we all?), you’ll love the pair from COS. And there are plenty more where that came from too, with elegant pairs from Zara, H&M, Mango, Next and Arket. Keep scrolling to see the best of the bunch.
