After putting up with so much ugly footwear on runways and store shelves alike (we’re looking at you platform sneakers and butch slides), we’re happy to see a shoe trend which is all class. Enter the chic lace-up heels, which is all perk and no cray.
It’s like a corset for your feet, so it gets a 10/10 for sex appeal, but can also manage to stay sophisticated and feminine with graceful materials and ladylike colourways and prints. Whether it’s a subtle ankle tie or lace-up detail which spans far beyond your calf, the trend can easily be played up or down.
If you’re convinced it’s time to settle down and tie the knot with this footwear trend, check out our gallery below for our favourite lace-up picks.
