Blake Lively’s Chanel sandals are a twist on the ‘ugly’ shoe trend
It’s official: Blake Lively loves comfortable shoes. When not running in her Nike Air Max 1 or On Cloudflow sneakers, she usually goes for a comfortable sandal like Celine’s Fisherman style. More recently, the actor was spotted in another wearable shoe that could very well start a trend for the rest of the season. While in New York City with her daughters, Lively wore a pair of chunky daddy’s sandals from Chanel – an easy slip-on style you’ll want to wear nonstop. The puffy double-strap shoes were instantly recognizable with the iconic double-C logo and crisscross quilting design. For those who have followed the trends, this particular sandal from Chanel is highly sought after by the fashion crowd. In fact, getting your hands on a pair is like finding buried treasure – the mission is nearly impossible unless you find the shoe in your exact size for resale.
Lively, being a Hollywood star, of course got her hands on the coveted item and paired the adcore shoe with a monochrome black outfit. The set consisted of a coordinating scoop-neck sweater and baggy pants, which she accessorized with a silver buckle belt. To finish off her look, Lively wore a matching quilted handle bag from Chanel and black round-shaped sunglasses. It seems the actor has a soft spot for the French luxury brand when it comes to her shoes, as she was spotted in a pair of beige braided sandals from Chanel last week.
Lively isn’t the only celebrity who likes to reflect on the “ugly” shoe trend. Street style icons such as Gigi Hadid, Sophie Turner and Jennifer Lopez all loved wearing their chunky, casual shoes. Meanwhile, other stars prefer a similar double-strap design without the slingback element, which makes the Chanel pair a real sandal rather than a casual slide. Take the back strap off and you have Birkenstock-esque slippers, which Katie Holmes and Kendall Jenner love as go-to shoes for running errands.
The exact luxury sandal Lively wore is currently sold out in Chanel stores, but if you dig a little deeper you may be able to find a pair at an online retailer. Vestiaire Collective and FASHIONPHILE have a pair, which you can purchase below. The RealReal also has a few sizes in stock, whether you’re a 5.5 or 7 in sandals. If you cannot find your size, you can opt for models similar to the Chanel pair from other labels such as Prada, Gucci and ASOS.
