We’ve already discussed the best investments when it comes to bags and jewelry, and now I wanted to delve into the world of shoes. When I think of perennially classic designer shoes, some favorites come to mind: Gucci sneakers, Chanel slingbacks, Manolo Blahnik sandals, and Chrisitan Louboutin pumps, just to name a few. But when it comes to the buzziest shoes right this very second, our friends at The RealReal told us that there are five styles in particular that are reigning supreme.
The RealReal’s head of womenswear, Sasha Skoda, told Who What Wear about the most-coveted shoes right now. “We’re seeing an opening in the market post–Phoebe Philo Celine, and Daniel Lee’s Bottega is filling that white space for minimalist design,” Skoda said. “We’ve seen resale value for Bottega strengthen under Daniel Lee— to the tune of 4x stronger resale value than non–Daniel Lee Bottega. That said, his stretch sandals are not only commanding a high ROI but are also propelling the square toe trend.” Scroll down to see the other four shoes The RealReal says are retaining their value exceptionally well on the resale market right now.
