Grab of the Week: a slingback shoe that’s like a clog, but way cooler

There’s nothing like some good ol’ shoe candy to drool over just before the weekend hits. These laser-cut, fine leather slingbacks are reminiscent of the popular clog (RIP), but are updated with a stacked wooden heel and quirky details.

While we have an appreciation for the return of the understated and refined stiletto, we’re not above stomping around the city in something that isn’t so dainty. Hailing from Hackney, London (essentially the English version of Parkdale, and the hub of cool), Miista shoes have arrived in Toronto for the first time thanks to contemporary accessories retailer Sauvage on Queen West.

If you like to be ahead of the game when it comes to what’s on your feet, we say head there now, because sizes are limited.

Ori in dirty white by Miista, $228. Available at Sauvage
