Your Must-Have Spring Shoe Is So Cheap You Can Buy 3
Sourcing out good, affordable shoes is no easy feat. It’s an endless game of pick 2 of 3: comfortable, trendy, or well made. But every so often, we stumble upon a gem that hits every point on the pyramid. Introducing your new favorite spring shoe – Gap’s leather and suede block mule heels. (Yes, your shoe of the season is one you can grab at your next mall visit.)
I wish I could say this was #SponCon but believe it friends, these puppies are actually tried and true. During a recent attempt to find a simple flat for an upcoming vacation, I scrolled past these while scouring Gap’s New Arrivals and was immediately drawn to how chic, how minimal, and how slightly out of place they appeared. Made up of a clean leather look, the shoes glowed like a beacon of expensive light amidst bright pink d’orsay flat. Looking more luxe than their price tag, the block mules are like a mash up of my dream Mansur Gavriel and Celine leather heel all in one and for a cost I can afford, guilt free.
After a full day of wearing the mules around town, I made a note of them on my Instagram stories and the response was immediate. No less than 22 messages were thrown my way with fellow thrifty friends asking how they could get their hands on a pair. Half the joy was watching the shocked emoji faces roll in after I let them know they were from Gap and cost less than a monthly subway pass. I felt so renewed by the affirmation other’s thought they were a good find that I actually went and bought two more colors.
Although Gap’s never ever quite topped the list of being one of my go-to shoe spots, I’m not going to say I’m surprised. While Gap’s earnings have reportedly been sliding backwards, its trend driven product has been on the up and up. A cursory peek at their spring arrivals show a mix of patchwork print midi dresses, slingback kitten heels, and modern, one shoulder bikinis, so I’ll be on the lookout for more cheap thrills from the brand.
Before I send you forward to shop the shoe, dropping you a quick reminder that anyone who knows how to shop at Gap knows that there’s a new online just about every other day. There’s even a 20% off discount running as we speak. So if that $79.95 price tag still feels a little lofty to you, we recommend doing a daily check on the site. Your cheap thrills are straight ahead!
