6 Minimal Black Sandals for Every Budget

Remember the days of higher than high platforms? It's amazing how quickly shoe trends change; now it's all about single-soled, minimal heels! Here are some fab options for every budget:
{zara // steve madden // mango // reiss // charles jourdan // pour la victoire}

The Zara lovelies are the same exact style as the nude pair you've seen on the blog over the past few months. Obsessed is an understatement! Totally gaga over the Charles Jourdan style, too.

This style is super flattering with any and all bottoms. Pair 'em with jeans for a barely there shoe look or a skirt for a sexy, chic night out ensemble. Some ankle straps tend to cut the legs and make you appear shorter, but this minimal style is just right; think thin ankle strap vs. thick & chunky.

Have you hung up your platform heels? Do tell! 


  1. My eyes popped when I saw those from Reiss!!

  2. LOVE this post! Im a new york blogger, I blog about NY style, Food, Passion for makeup and just running around my awesome city. Would love if you checked it out, Lets follow eachother! :)


  3. YES YES YES, I've hung up my platforms. I'm three deep in for single sole strappy heeled sandals, I've got nude, lime green & recently acquired black. I tell myself I'm good... but that's probably a lie. I'm LOVING this style/trend! :)

  4. great post! i own the first and fifth. the zara heels are my favorite. thanks for the ideas!!

  5. Do you find that the single strap in front hurts your foot a lot? That has been my experience and since then, have been wary to try such shoes again. Thoughts or tricks?

  6. love this style and have a few myself, but not quite ready to give up my platforms yet! I still wear both type of shoes,depending on the outfit and what mood I'm in :)

  7. Still wearing my platforms, for sure! The extra height without a steeper incline? I'll always LOVE that!

  8. All these styles are so sexy :) I haven't hung up my platform shoes, but I always have room for more pairs and styles!


  9. Great picks! I ordered a similar pair from Go Jane this week for $22

  10. My fave shoe style lately! I got the Zara ones in nude as well and I got the Target heels in black (very similar to the SM Realove) - great round up!
