High-heeled thong sandals made a comeback this summer — and Kim Kardashian is one of the biggest fans of the trend.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star wore the style yet again this morning out and about in New York.
The KKW Beauty Mogul teamed her heels with a champagne-colored silk set that consisted of a button-down top and flare-legged pants.
The shoes came from the Season 8 collection of husband Kanye West’s Yeezy label. They boast a PVC upper with a leather sole and 4-inch wedge heels. The heeled flip-flops are available to shop on Revolve.com for $830.
Thong high heels aren’t everyone’s cup of tea — the style went away by the mid ’00s and has often been thought of as “ugly.” Once appearing with a bulky silhouette, the ’90s favorite has returned with a sleeker vibe, featuring slimmer straps and narrower heels. Other celebrities, including Emily Ratajkowski, Katie Holmes and Kardashian’s sister Kourtney, have embraced the heeled flip-flop trend, too.

Recent trends — like the “dad” shoe and “mom” mule — have seen the reinvention of former fashion faux pas. Contentious silhouettes also tap into the 2019 Met Gala theme of camp, which encourages embracing over-the-top styles that are so bad they become sort of chic.
