Ankle Strap Shoes Are Back And These Are The Pairs We Want

The ankle is one of the sexiest parts of a woman’s body, and this season’s most coveted shoes are all about showing that off. Here are five favourites.

These barely-there sandals are sexy but chic. Glitter will be popular for both day and evening come spring/summer so consider wearing these with socks for day and without for night.

Glitter sandals, €89 at & Other Stories

Feather trims have been popular on the catwalks for the past couple of seasons. I love these fun feather sandals. Worn with something structured and contemporary, they will feel less frivolous and more fashion.

These ankle-strap courts have a lovely mix of textures. The suede and nappa leather give a luxe feel, as does the subtle gold detailing.

Red leather court shoes, €79.99 at Massimo Dutti

I saw a photograph of Sienna Miller not long ago sporting this style of spherical block heel. The chunkiness of the heel contrasts nicely with the daintiness of the ankle strap, offering a shoe that’s modern and alternative.

Ankle strap shoes don’t have to be delicate. I love these statement shoes, with their studded block heel and oversized button detailing. The super-wide ankle strap will also offer great support.

Leather shoes, Peter Petrov, €384 (reduced from €640) at net-a-porter.com
