Maryam Nassir Zadeh Sandals

#1 I swear these sandals aren’t intended for grannies!

#2 I will wear them, and soon!

#3 How will I wear them you ask? Garance asked the same thing and I responded : ” with socks, I don’t love my feet ”

Ok, I know that is confusing. Why even buy sandals Brie? But hear me out, I like sandals, and I especially like a sandal with a little height in the city (so my feet have a greater chance of NOT getting stepped on). And I got these from MNZ in hopes of adding a bit of feminine charm to my summer wardrobe. Don’t you think these are in the right direction?

  • nous n’avons pas le même âge et donc oui ces sandales sont les mêmes que celles que ma grand-mère portaient ! mais la mode est un éternel recommencement !

  • they remind me grandmothers but also little girls. anyway, i think both are valid style references! :)

    Je ne comprendrais jamais cet engouement pour l’association des chaussettes et des sandales… Pourquoi ?

  • Oui! Elles sont simples, élégantes, confortables, je comprends l’étiquette “grand-mère” mais selon la personne qui les porte cela peut vraiment bien rendre. En fait cela me fait penser à mes ballerines fausses repetto vernies noires à petits talons, comme ça on pourrait aussi penser “shoes de grd-mère” mais sur moi ça rend très bien, j’ai bcp de compliments!

  • Hello ça serait super que vous partagiez ça pour un concours !

  • I like them! They’re so 90’s! But with socks? Definitely not my thing. I will alays associate that to those walking cliché tourists :)

  • Well I like them – but not with socks, honestly..!

    Like the sandals, and I join the chorus “Not with socks!”

  • I thought I was the only one that didn’t love my feet! I think I will need to go out and look for some cool socks to wear with my sandals. So fun!

  • Looking forward to see them on you!

  • They are back in fashion! My mum used to have and wear the same model. I guess they are comfy for running around.
    Leave the socks out, and let your feet enjoy fresh air! :)

    Brie c’est que j’appelle des chaussures de religieuses ! Ma fille veut les mêmes ! Chaussettes courtes pailletées ou rien !

    Well actually i think these sandals would look even better with socks ! Of course you need to find the right socks, maybe some with lace, but i think it’s always a question of styling when you’re afraid a piece of clothing looks like your grandma’s. I’m sure these will look amazing on you !

  • Yes, lace socks with sandals would look amazing. Amazingly good on a little girl and amazingly bad on a grown-up person.

    I think with grey socks. Thats how I wear them. Its a little bit less shocking then white, but not like you are hiding with black. They are very versatile that way. Honest. Roll up your boyfriend jeans, wear a sheer midi skirt. Perfect in tons of ways.

  • I love these and don’t think they’re granny at all; they’re edgy ;). But not with socks. That’s only for German tourists.

  • uh?????… You pointed out all my questions before reading your post. Well well, waiting for your streetstyle pics then.
    ps : I read that you lived in California and was always ready to head to the beach. So…. How did you do back then in your previous californian life? You never wore sandals nor flip flops???

    Love them! I have been wanting some of Maryam’s Sophie sandals for a while now (although I’m not sure I’d wear them with socks, I’m not opposed to the idea on someone else).

    Come on… Studio Garance please lead the way from terming something “Grannie” as if it means unfashionable, etc. Best you to talk to Carine Roitfeld about that! ;)

  • Sorry but that’s a no-no !!!

  • Alors comment dire… ces sandales avec des chaussettes…euh je n’y crois pas un seul instant. Mais je demande à voir. Bon et puis ces sandales tout court….euh ouais si tu as 20 ans et un style très très hype parce que sinon désolée mais là pour le coup, je suis comme Garance, je dis “pourquoi ???” ah ah (ce n’est que mon avis hein !!)

  • Il faudrait voir ces sandales portees mais surtout…..sans chaussettes !

  • I am surprised that these classic sandals are considered old fashioned. I always look for this sort of thing in the summer, although my preference is tan. These sandals look perfect to me.

    No socks with these, for heaven’s sake!

  • Hmm I would like to see them on you, they are not really my cuppa tee but can work!

  • Yesterday reading this post I was thinking “What is this Brie talking about… such fugly shoes…” But then today I ran around the whole day thinking of them. I believe I need them desperately in my closet!!!

    Please would link them?

  • Socks with heels is one (pretty) thing, but socks with sandals is always a no. Especially with these… sorry Brie but I’m putting my veto here.

  • Woahh, such negativity on the socks. I’m pretty sure you could definitely rock these with pastel coloured socks, Brie! Just show us when you do and prove the nay-sayers wrong ;)

    With socks, definitely. I have a similar pair, and thats how I wear them too.

  • Cette sandale est très classique et élégante, mais l’association avec une paire de chaussettes, c’est un peu gênant ;)

    I DO love them. In fact, I’ve coveted those very ones on many a website. They’re so granny that they’re cool. And I should know, cuz I’m a granny. But no socks for me. I picture myself being carted off to the asylum in socks and sandals, with my bag-lady attire. If you’re young and cute, go for it!
