It looks like anything lace-up for the feet will be a hot commodity this coming spring. Balmain, Derek Lam, and Balanciaga will all be offering lace-up booties. As for sandals…well, check out these lace-up cut-out gladiator sandals from Aperlai:
Aperlai Lace-up Platform Gladiator Sandal, Spring 2010
Aperlai Lace-up Flat Gladiator Sandal, Spring 2010
If you really think about it, it’s not like lace-up detailing is anything new to begin with, nor is cut-out detailing. But you could say it’s more like the movers and shakers (and the high and mighty) of the fashion industry suddenly decided to zone in on lace-ups and make it “the” trend for Spring 2010.
If you want to stay in fashion for the coming season, you can purchase any of the affordable lace-up cut-out sandals enumerated below, some of which, bear a close resemblance to Aperlai’s lace-up collection:
Dolce Vita Carly Heel, US$99
L.A.M.B. Jaco Sandal, US$290
