Does this style have a name?

I don't know but I really like them. I once saw a woman wearing some with a small heel similar to these but far, far nicer. Very chic and continental. A year on I still wish I'd asked her where they were from.

Marking place as need some nice summery shoes which let air in and not allowed open-toes at work, sadly these are sold out in my size.

D'orsay I think

'Two part shoe' is how I generally see them referred to.

Ooh, thank you! Can you help me find a flat (but not too flat) d'orsay/two part shoe in gold? Need a strap, so similar style to those I linked to. Budget up to £50.

These aren't gold but might be along the right lines
V nice on, pic doesn't do them justice.

I've seen quite a few of this style lately. Will try and remember where...

Asos any good?

Talisin Fri 15-Apr-16 19:32:37

These ones from Monsoon do have a heel but it's not high (and they're on sale).

Lookdownthesofa Fri 15-Apr-16 20:01:07

Not keen on the Clark's ones and I really, really do need them to be flat. Quite like the Asos ones, but think they might be too flat <contrary>.

Next has some in black. Sorry I can't link.

Espadrille style?

Lookdownthesofa Fri 15-Apr-16 21:45:33

I quite like the espadrille style ones. Do espadrilles tend to have an inflexible sole (if that makes sense?)

Lookdownthesofa Fri 15-Apr-16 21:56:24

I like these, but wish they had a strap

SewSlapdash Fri 15-Apr-16 21:59:32

They're known as "open waisted".

El Naturalista

herecomesthsun Sat 16-Apr-16 07:43:36

cheaper and not as flat as they first look

Lookdownthesofa Sat 16-Apr-16 10:02:58

☺ Thanks herecomesthesun. The second ones are those I linked to in my original post. The style is perfect, but the colours aren't quite right. There are none left in my size in any of the colours anyway. Maybe i'll do a general search for el naturalista shoes. They are certainly the style I am after.

Ah sorry

BlackCatSleeps Sat 16-Apr-16 10:23:03

I didn't check each of the links so apologies if these have already been suggested but I was sent a Seasalt catalogue yesterday and there are some in there. Called Palmaira sandals.

weebarra Sat 16-Apr-16 10:25:26

Yes, I was going to say Seasalt Palmaira. They do have a tiny open bit but wouldn't show your toes - I have awful awful toenails so can't show them!
