I was wandering the Internet and came across so many versions of this sandal style:

I smiled because I had bought a pair very similar (minus the back zip) in style in January 2009 at H&M while in NYC!
The pair I own:

I was ahead of the fashion game when I purchased these sandals and didn't even know it!
Mine have a buckle instead of a zip closure but, they are essentially the same style. When I bought them I thought them a bit unique because they are platform and I wasn't seeing this style everywhere. Plus they were only $19.99 on sale so I snapped them up. Now, almost every designer (including Diane Von Furstenberg) has a pair that are similar in their collection for Spring 2010.
It always amuses me when I am ahead of the fashion herd in purchases I make and it seems to have happened again.
