Hey Bella Hadid, the 2000s called and it totally approves of the daring shoes you just wore. (Oh, and so do we.)

Hadid has been slaying that style game — as per usual — but there was something about her latest Instagram #OOTD that had us feeing some type of way. Nostalgic! Bit by the travel bug! Inspired to dig out our platform flip-flops from the 2000s! Wait, what? Yes, really.

In the 🔥 'gram, the supermodel wore an itty bitty, teeny weeny orange, sunset-inspired bikini from Priscavera that we now also want. She paired the two-piece with a matching mesh skirt, and a coordinating bandana. Her accessories, however, stole the show. A gold chain, a pair of oversized Bella hoop earrings from The M Jewelers, and cool-looking sunnies complemented the look, but what really pulled it all together were her ultra-chunky, sky-high platform flip-flops that look like they're straight from the early aughts.

Throwback shoe trends are nothing new, like the iconic Vans making a comeback or these old-school sneakers. But there's something about platform flip-flops that really pulls on our nostalgic heart strings like nothing else.

Good thing's there are ample style to pick from that will remind you of the pair you wore in the early aughts. Snag these Roxys for a really good throwback moment or these Soda Platform Flip-Flops that are a reasonable $22. Shop the best platforms sandals below.
