I used to hate this type of shoe, with ankle strap, but after seing Emmanuelle Alt sporting those beautiful Alaia shoes I thought … oh, well! they can’t be that bad. The reality check factor is that Alt is really tall, and the ankle strap looks cheesy and does not complement a petite figure.
Even so, Tabitha Simmons (who deserves all our attention and who I look up to – because, as you may know, she first started as a fashion stylist and then developed her own shoe brand – a thing that I only hope to accomplish – see her blog here) designed this beautiful collection for spring summer 2012… where the ankle strap shoes are the stars of the collection, in colorful illuminating prints and super-classy heels.
Hope you like them as much as I did!!
