Thousands of people are on the waiting list for these Dune sandals

Cast your minds back to summer 2018, when Dune’s Loupe sandals flew off the shelves in ever size and colour. Well, whilst the sun may not have quite returned to UK shores just yet, the shoes look set to be just as popular for this year, with thousands of people already on the waiting list to snap them up.

The buzz around the Loupe sandal began on social media, where it quickly became a hit with fashion influencers who noticed that it was a dead ringer for Hermes’ much lusted-after £485 Oran sliders.

To absolutely no one’s surprise, stocks of the Loupe promptly sold out, with Dune confirming that the black and tan styles were restocked six times throughout the season.

‘At the height of summer, one out of every six customer images that Dune London were tagged in on Instagram featured the Loupe sandal,’ a spokesperson told Femail.

Due to incredibly popular demand, they’ll be back for this year – not only in the colour ways that already exist on the Dune website, but also in fun twists like leopard print, snake print, and denim – for which waiting lists of thousands of customers have already built up.

Best of all, a pair of Loupe sandals will set you back just £85 – which, whilst certainly not the cheapest set of shoes on the market, is much more affordable than shelling out for the designer version.

With its comfortable height thanks to the low block heel, and chic contrast stitching, the Loupe sandal is one that will see you through this summer and well beyond.

Plus, as they’ve already been so popular online, a quick skim of your favourite fashion blogs should prove you with all of the outfit inspo you need….
