Tuesday Shoesday – Ankles are back for A/W12

Last week a new footwear trend emerged at Paris Fashion Week – ankle straps.

  

For Autumn/Winter 2012, Paris Fashion Week was awash with massive variety of shoe colours and styles – all featuring ankle-straps. On the catwalk Louis Vuitton showed super-high, colour-block strappies with eye-catching features including oversized buttons and metallic toe-caps. Christian Dior (above) showcased cute ballet-style shoes with boxy, point-shoe toes, dainty bows, and ribbon-like ankle-straps in a traditionally muted autumn shades from black to mauve. Chanel’s chunky heels featured t-strap ankle-strap shoes in festive jewel-tone palette. 

Here’s my pick of the high street versions to give you a head-start on this trend. I expect we’ll be seeing even more ankle-strappy shoes launched in the run-up to autumn. From left to right: New Look £20, Topshop £65, Debenhams £32
