The most iconic sandals - find your sole mate

Is it even possible not to love these sandals? From the moment Saint Laurent released the Jane, it became an instant hit -  the barely there shoes looked gorgeous on everyone, gave an illusion of lightness, could be worn with jeans or an evening gown and rewarded most women with the lean and long legs of a top model. Looking like a sharp thin line, gently contouring the feet, refining the shape and defining the style, the Saint Laurents were a stroke of genius and a very tempting investment.

I don't often say this, but these sandals are definitely one the timeless pairs every woman should own. There were similar shapes in the 70s and 90s, so the newly reincarnated Jane will look modern and style appropriate for at least a decade. However if the original Saint Laurent is still more of a wish list item, there are plenty of gorgeous alternatives to make every girl happy - I've done the legwork, picked the best of the best and if you can spot the Saint Laurent without fail, then grab yourself a biscuit from a treat jar to enjoy whilst shopping.

Which one is your perfect sole mate?

  14. Saint-Laurent's Jane sandals have been on my wishlist for what feels like forever... and no matter how many imitators I try on, they never feel quite the same. Numbers 9 and 13 from your selection do look awfully tempting, though!
    xox,
