Taking the internet by storm with a wealth of sell-out pieces, Marks & Spencer have had us going wild for their trend-led accessories recently. And now, they're doing it again – with a little help from the blogging community.
The high street hero has teamed up with seven bloggers and influencers, with each of them working with the in-house design team to create their very own pair of shoes.
One pair of shoes has been released every two weeks over the last month or so, and this week, it was the turn of 'The Erica', from fashion influencer Erica Davies.
And it seems customers loved the latest release, as the shoes are selling out very quickly online.
At the time of writing, the bejewelled orange sandals were available in just a few sizes, including a 9 and a 4, just 24 hours after their launch.
And it's easy to see why customers are loving the statement shoes. The stand-out, chunky sandals may not be understated, but the fun and vibrant jewels mean they're a great pick for anyone on the hunt for some bold footwear.
With the summer just around the corner, we reckon they'd be perfect for a sunny holiday - taking you from beach to bar in just a matter of seconds.
If you're lucky enough to have your size still on sale online, you'll pay £45 to take these M&S blogger shoes home. But be quick, because we reckon they'll soon be selling out!
If you didn't manage to get the shoes for yourself, never fear, as there are still a few more blogger-designer shoes set to be released on the M&S website over the coming weeks.
Other bloggers who have designed shoes with M&S are Fran Bacon (The Fashion Lift), Zoë de Pass (Dress Like A Mum), Danielle Vanier, Erica Davies (The Edited), and Kat Farmer (Does My Bum Look 40 In This).
All are purse-friendly too, coming in at between £35 and £49.50.
And each design clearly reflects each influencer's own individual style.
Catering for all tastes, the shoes range from classic moc-croc midi heels, sports luxe sandals and statement pom-pom adorned sliders - so there really is something for everyone.
So what sort of shoes are on offer? Take a peek at the collection yourself below…
Sadly, these gorgeous flats have already sold out on the website, after being released mid-February. But there are plenty of others to look forward to...
Zoë de Pass
These pom-pom sliders were the first to be released, and are sadly all out of stock now!
Danielle's shoes are yet be to released, so keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks!
Kat's chic and elegant flat sandals would be perfect for summer, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that they don't sell out too fast for us to get some when they're released very soon...
So which shoes will you be picking up for a shopping treat? Keep your eyes peeled for all of these over the next few weeks!

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
