When it comes to one of our favourite high street brands, Zara, you can expect to get some super stylish pieces that look like they have fallen straight off the latest catwalks. However over the years we have also spotted some very questionable items such as the flower bag.

Whether you’re browsing in store or online, you’re in for a treat with their, shall we say quirky, model shots and also their “new twists” on everyday essentials.

The latest product that has been highlighted by one of our go-to Instagram accounts, Awkward Zara, is a cross between a leather sock and a sandal.

Sock shoes have always been a controversial trend, and if worn right can look amazing but if worn wrong, then you just end up looking like you got dressed in the dark.

Taking to their Instagram account, the page posted a snap of the new items to their 56.4K followers with the caption of: “you may be surprised to learn that you are not looking at an amputated foot, but a pair of sandals whose main 'selling point' is a pair of detachable leather socks add to cart, or add to the list of things you hope to never lay eyes upon ever again?”

Naturally we couldn’t stop laughing at the caption alone, but it was their followers' replies that had us in fits of laughter.

One user replied with: “When you want to wear sandals but you haven’t had a pedi since the start of the pandemic.”

Whilst another followed with: “Hmmm how can I look more pale, and more cankley, and make my legs look shorter all at the same time?”

As a third said: “Omg Zara you've gone too far!!!”

We tried to navigate Zara’s complicated website in search for the new shoes, however, it seems they have either sold out, been removed as they realised they made a mistake making these or could it be because they are a very close resemblance to Gucci’s similar release?

As part of their latest collection, designer brand Gucci launched a pair of nude leather socks with red sandals, starting to sound familiar?

So whether you’re a fan or not, make sure to keep an eye on the website and in-store. Will you be treating yourself or adding to your non-wishlist?
