As lovers of all things minimalist, we have a thing for Céline. Bad news: it’s not exactly affordable or readily available. Good news: Roots has us seeing double!

Can you guess which is which is theCapri sandal by Roots ($128) and which is the hard-to-find flat thong sandal byCéline (around $500)? Both are premium leather, both are thongs, both have ankle straps and both are summer must-haves. Okay, we’ll tell you: Roots is on the left. The Capri sandal’s contoured sole in molded cork may have won us over, regardless of the price. That, and being patriotic Canadians and all.
