Attention shoe lovers: a hot trend seen on the runways and celebrities alike is the ankle strap. They adorn stilettos, sandals and wedges. From chunky to unobtrusive, “the strap” brings a sporty edge to any outfit!
Let’s get right into the photos!

On the runway:
Giambattista Valli adds a chunky chain on the strap
A few great ones by Donna Karen
Isabel Marant showed some multi-straps
One tip I would recommend is to pay attention to the thickness of the strap. Someone with a chunkier ankle or calf should stay away from wider straps as they will visually shorten the leg.
I personally love these! Is it something you’d wear?
