Ankle Detailed Shoes

One of summer's biggest (and trickiest) trends has been shoes with bold detail at the ankles. Be forewarned that mismanagement of this trend will shorten your legs and give you cankles. It looks best with a relatively unadventurous outfit so the focus can rest with your feet. Even so, short me loves this trend. I love the feel of an ankle strap or cuff, and crazy shoes never distract other people at work (some of my clothing has garnered that complaint).Top: grey laced-up cuff pump, Linea Paolo "Vie" at Nordstrom $129.95
cobalt bead thong, "Bianna" by Steve Madden $129.95 (Other colors are on sale at Endless!)
brown ankle cuff pumps, Forever 21 $29.80
grey gladiator ankle flats, "Delilah" by Dolce Vita on Shopbop $100
Middle: green patent pump, "Convent" Carlos by Carlos Santana at Famous Footwear $49.99
taupe thong with silver strap, Boutique 9 on Endless $111.11
white cutout ankle wrap sandal, "RSVP" by Seychelles on Endless $76.91
Bottom: stud cuff sandal, "Molavi" at Aldo $59.98
grey perforated cuff sandal, Charlotte Russe $24.99
brown tassled ankle cuff sandal, Naughty Monkey "Metal Mama" on Endless $79.95
grey fringe pump, "Pixy" Calvin Klein on Zappos $89.95
