When we showed you a slew of slide sandals to choose from as one of your top summer sandals, we included a huge range of finds from high-end designer to super affordable. However, all of the styles were just as different as all of its prices. But we’re not surprised to see a few similar items (but with majorly different prices) within the bunch — thus is the sole existence of this Taste Test column. In today’s edition, can you tell which gold bar slide sandal costs over $800?
Answer: The sandal on the right is Chloé Embellished Neoprene Slides ($840) and the sandal on the left is Jeffrey Campbell Gold Bar Sandal ($110). The original design by Chloe hails from the brand’s Resort 2014 collection, which also comes in an aqua blue sole. And while both of the sandals’ ideas are pretty much exactly the same, the different bottoms of each item becomes the deal breaker — and how much you’re willing to spend, too.
