Cult-favorite purveyor of spaghetti-strap linen dresses and upcycled threads Reformation just announced it's dipping a toe into footwear…and we're wondering, can we dip our toes into these shoes?!
Like so many of its simple-cut dresses and tops, the sandals, espadrilles, flats and heels, Ref Shoes will be offered in a few color and material options, so you'll find something to wear to all those summer weddings and long weekends in the Amalfi Coast (ya know, if you're into that sorta thing).
These 11 styles include a strappy sandal with a tiny one-inch heel, a chunky-heeled sandal with a trio of thin straps, a few ankle-tie espadrilles in both flat and wedge iterations, and a pair of ankle-strap heels. The prices range from $128 to $218.
The press release states that the collection is "a nod to the 90s," drawing on inspiration from vintage silhouettes, featuring bright, poppy colors, metallics and patent leather. The Caroline Sandal, which is an elevated take on a flip-flop, definitely makes us think of the days of low-rise denim and halter tops…but we're not necessarily complaining.
Like all of Reformation's eco-conscious clothing, the products are sustainably made using materials like chrome-free leather and jute. The company notes that their footwear will save an average of 52 percent of CO2 emissions, 70 percent water and 65 percent waste compared to most shoes bought in the U.S.
It's decided, then. Taking a long lunch today, because narrowing it down to the one pair we want most is going to a lot harder than we thought.
