These €80 Zara shoes are the bargain version of the €990 real deal

These €80 Zara sandals are the bargain version of the €990 real deal.

If Instagram is a major source of style inspiration for you, chances are you've spotted Bottega Veneta's By Lido mules in all their leather, quilted glory.


They come in a range of shades and although the electric blue is social media's favourite, the black and nude versions are more practical and seriously stunning to boot.

However, they are designer shoes and come with a designer price tag, currently retailing at €990.


The square-toe and padded detail make a serious style statement and it's no wonder that fashion fans can't get enough of them.

However, if that price tag is making your eyes water, we have some good news for you.

Zara is killing it at the moment and just take a look at these insane dupes for the much-coveted shoe.

These are the Quilted Braided Heeled Leather Sandals and they're priced at €79.95 which is a fraction of the price of the designer version.

In terms of how to wear them, the main advantage here is their versatility.

Wear with faded jeans and a black blazer, a midi skirt and slogan t-shirt or culottes and a leather jacket - so many options.

They also come in a vanilla shade if neutrals are more your thing and like most Zara must-haves, they're sure to sell out before too long.
