Despite mild Winter weather, it’s still technically snowboot season. Fashion insiders and resort fashion shoppers, however, have their eyes on sandals and sarongs. There is one style of sandal, in particular, that is beginning to sell out everywhere.
Alexander Wang seems to be having an especially brisk resort season. As a matter of fact, the designer’s Nova sandals ($550) are beginning to sell out. The high-heeled sling-back sandal is accented with studs along the base and includes a PVC vamp. The result makes your foot look as if it is floating on a bed of studs. The Nova comes in black and “Clay” but that’s if you can find them.
You might want to spring on the Nola right now if the style excites you. The shoe style is completely sold out at Barneys. As a matter of fact, the shoe was completely removed from the site. Neiman Marcus won’t be getting a restock until April. Bergdorf Goodman has none either.
If this is a shoe you desire, there is some hope. Shopbop customers haven’t caught onto the trend and the site still has every size available, This link on Net-A-Porter shows all Novas sold out but there was a restock that is listed here with a variety of sizes. Saks Fifth Avenue has several sizes still left. FiveStory has three sizes of the sandal available. You can find almost every size of the Nova sandal on Farfetch but some retailers are starting to hike up the price.
Part of the sandal’s popularity is likely the fact that it’s “just” $550. In a sea of $1000 heels, one can justify that this newest trend is already half-price. These sandals are extra versatile because you can pair them with black stockings or tights. We suggest you don’t wait if the Nova is piquing your interest. What inventory that still remains will probably sell out before the next big holiday break.
