There is no denying the pandemic has affected the way we dress, and shop, perhaps forever. During the lockdown, many of us turned to comfort, investing in loungewear and pyjamas, and the same has gone for shoes.
So it’s perhaps no surprise that NET-A-PORTER’s best-selling footwear for the season combines sophistication and comfort. Specifically slip on shoes, elevated slippers, chunky flat sandals and slides, which can easily work all day and can double-up as stay-at-home options.
At the moment, NET-A-PORTER customers are mainly searching for flat shoes and this category has seen the most visits over the past month. There has also been a spike in searches for slides and pointed flats, while slippers, loafers and slides are ranked in the top 100 search terms for the past month.
So if you want to jump on the bandwagon, here are the most popular styles and designers on the site now. Shop them below, before they sell out completely.
