Shoe Crush: Aquazzura Lace Up Flats

UPDATE: It is July and this trend is going stronger than ever!  Both the Aquazzura original and the lower priced dupes stay selling out, so I am here with a few more options so you can get your feet in this fab style.  Keep reading for options at all price points:

[Originally published February 11th – did I call this trend or what?] It is no secret that I love flats: Living in Manhattan and walking everywhere is just not conducive to wearing heels on a daily basis for me.  Needless to say, I am thrilled that the current shoe-of-the-moment is not one that will land me on my ass if I encounter cobblestone. Aquazurra, the label of Columbian shoe designer Edgardo Osorio, is known for their night-out-ready stilettos, but has managed to bring that sexiness to a flat with the “Christy” lace up style.

Aquazzura Styled

Hot and comfortable? Sign me up! I love how they look paired with a casual outfit too – blogger Sincerely Jules styled them with a black leather jacket and jeans, and I want the entire look (in #plussizeplease!) The $675 price tag is unfortunately not in my budget right now, though, so here are some options at a couple of different price points:

Marc Jacobs Lace Up


Marc Jacobs Lace Up Monochrome Flats, $377
