Hailey Baldwin Does the High-Heeled Thong Sandal Trend in Miami

Hailey Baldwin took on two of the season’s biggest shoe trends — high-heeled thongs and square toes — Tuesday while out and about in Miami.

The 23-year-old model sported a futuristic Opening Ceremony cropped top with a zipped-front and cut-out sleeves ($525 on the brand’s site), teamed with mom jeans.

But the star of the “Drop the Mic” co-host’s outfit was her shoes: a pair of high-heeled thong sandals from Bottega Veneta.

While heeled flip-flops have often been derided, the aughts style made a comeback this spring. Compared with its earlier predecessor, today’s high-heeled thong has a sleeker silhouette and a slimmer heel.

In addition to boasting a 3.5-inch stiletto heel, Baldwin’s Bottega shoes have a trendy, ’90s-inspired square toe, another former fashion no-no that’s back in vogue. Baldwin’s sandals are available to pre-order now at Luisaviaroma.com for $797.

Since creative director Daniel Lee’s 2018 appointment, Bottega has found a new audience, beloved for its minimalist yet trend-forward aesthetic. Lee’s first Bottega collection came out for pre-fall ’19 and was a smash hit among the fashion crowd, appearing on the feet of “It” girls in New York, London, Paris and Milan.

At Milan Fashion Week spring ’20, Bottega had one of the buzziest shows —  debuting a twisted double-strap mule that had fashionistas gushing.

“I love the new intrecciato double-strap mules and the babouche styles for men. They are so comfortable to wear for such a statement shoe,” said Tiffany Hsu, Mytheresa fashion buying director. “For sure, there’s room for development, but as long as the newness remains, the brand is here to stay.”
