Anyone remember these Zara flats? For a couple of weeks, these were the no. 1 shoes on Instagram and it seemed like everyone and their mom owned a pair. If they look somehow familiar to you, you’re absolutely right as they are a beautiful hybrid of Isabel Marant’s studded Leo flats and Aquazzura’s Christy lace-up flats (see another lovely Isabel Marant and Aquazzura hybrid example here). I’m not sure how much they retailed for, but I guess probably somewhere around $80. Now that isn’t expensive for a pair of chic flats and probably also the reason why these babies were sold out in no time at Zara. I tried my best to score them, but no such luck! Boohoo!

So, lace-up flats. You probably won’t get around them this summer. First, we started with Aquazzura’s pointy “Christy” flats and today we present you yet another gorgeously delicate example: “Leo” by Isabel Marant, an eyelet-embellished ballet flat with intricate lace-up design and scalloped edges for a soft and feminine look. It seems like high heels may have to take a summer vacation this summer because the fashion blogosphere has gone cuckoo for sophisticated flats this season.

Jeffrey Campbell “Prudence” Lace-Up Flats

So you love Isabel Marant, we get that. But spending almost $600 isn’t a viable option right now? Well, leave it to Jeffrey Campbell to come up with an almost identical design. JC’s “Prudence” is astonishingly similar to Isabel Marant’s “Leo” flats, but costs $400 less than the real deal. A few sizes are already sold out, so be fast if you want Isabel Marant chic 4 less!
