Put Away Your Flip Flops, Lace Up Flats Are Back

Sandals are the vacation your feet deserve after six months of being stuffed in socks, boots, and sneakers. And what better way to welcome spring than with a lace up flat? They’re the long lost cousin of the naked shoe, but with a little extra ankle floss.

And there are so many ways to dress them up. Opt for playful charms on your laces (you can even DIY them on yourself). Get creative with how you tie them. Let them climb up your calf for a more dramatic look or keep them bunched at the ankles for extra support.

Click through for 20 lace up flats you’ll want to add to your shoe-tation this season.
