There are some classic fashion essentials that can stay true to their essential form OR can be recreated to reflect societies modern fashion orientations and regardless,  which ever direction you choose - remain perfectly on-point.

The Ankle Strapped heel is EXACTLY this type of classic (yet fashionable) MUST-HAVE!

This season you will find ankle strapped shoes indulging in multiple straps, in feather crowned anklet positioning, in styles that suit the more athletically inclined Trend-Setter and textures that include velvet - but throughout it all one thing stays the same - its key feature remains as the singular strap that buckles securely around your ankles that we are all so accustomed too.


Take it from Valentino, Balenciaga, Gucci, Reem Acra or Tony Bianco - strappy heels are hot this season - and there is a multitude of ways to express your personal flair for fashion via them.


Looking to upgrade from the classic?  Try these styles:


Textures are this season’s key to being fashion-forward.  They take what is a given, an expected and make it into something sensational!

The feathered ankle strapped shoe for example; Worn in a cluster on your tootsies with delicate whispers of feathers in blush pink or worn in an anklet-crowning-glory type of way, with strong and pronounced feathers in red - and you will elovate the traditional ankle strap high-heel into something noteworthy!


Want to holiday in Bali but it is just not going to happen anytime soon - then fake it till you make it!  Step out in beach-fun vibes, tasseled and colourful and you’ll at least give your feet the chance to feel like they are somewhere else.

Tasseled ankle straps are the key to that chilled vacation vibe when the reality is otherwise.  Whether bright or black - the texture and fun will liven up any LBD or trouser combo you choose.


Athletic in vibe, this style is casual in appearance but perhaps the hardest style to pull off!  So wear it with care, being aware of the strap proportions and the Flatform height!

Flatform ankle strap shoes look incredible with an unreal amount of attitude and TasteMaker confidence!


A fashion faux-pas turned obsession - this season there isn’t anything as seductive as the sock with open-toed, ankle strapped sandal!  Wear them sheer, fishnet, sparkly or grafitti bright and as long as they hit mid-calf - you’ll be on point!
