Wanted: Aquazzura Christy Lace-Up Flats

Accessories, Most Wanted, What's Trending  /   /  By Sarah Wetmore

Is it just us or has your Instagram feed been flooded with the Aquazzura Christy Lace-Up Flat lately, too? Bloggers Emily Tozer of The Glam Files, Julie Sariñana of Sincerely, Jules, and Lisa DiCicco Cahue of Mind Body Swag have all been spotted pairing these pointed-toe lace-up slippers with cropped destroyed denim. Lucy Williams of Fashion Me Now and Laura Dittrich of Fashion Landscape have added an on-trend twist to these anti-basic ballet flats by pairing them with button front A-line skirts.

Perhaps the most classic way to sport these cutout leather Italian crafted flats, our pick for an everyday urban uniform, is by just adding a Breton striped tee and skinnies. (P.S. Did you know the Breton striped top was introduced as the French navy uniform in 1858 featuring 21 stripes—one for each of Napolean’s victories—and made fashionable when Coco Chanel debuted the design via her nautical 1917 collection?) The reason the Breton striped tee, cropped denim, leather jacket, and Christy Flat look works so well, as championed by Shalini Papas of Moments of Spur and Arielle Noa Charnas of Something Navy, is all in the details. The polished goldtone aglets at the tip of the tonal slim leather laces and the goldtone heel elevate any off-duty outfit. The delicate way the laces crisscross and wrap around the ankle is a testament to designer Edgardo Osorio’s eye for dramatic, geometric, and ultra seductive design.

Osorio told The Wall Street Journal, “I wanted to create flats that are as chic as heels—flats you don’t have to apologize for. I design flats like I design heels: They must be seductive, beautiful and comfortable. I like statement flats that can take you from day to night.”

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!
    I would not pay $50.00 for either pair of these awful looking shoes!
    In fact, they look awful on the models feet! The toe cracks showing at the vamp of the shoe!

    I like the beige ones best. And I wold pay for them, but not $700. Couldn’t afford that much for a pair of shoes.

    I hate pointy shoes, if it had rounded tip I would have liked it, I also don’t like shoes with cleavage showing (that’s what they call the feet showing the cracks for those who don’t know). If this started a trend then you can get it cheaper and similar or better styles.

    I actually enjoy these designs, possibly because they resemble Tsukino Usagi’s school shoes–but the toe cleavage is horrible! It is unsightly, and gives the impression of shoes that do not fit. Cute idea, but it needs work.

    Agree with you Massiel, dont like pointy toes that show cleavage, and they even look uncomfortable on both model’s feet. The ankle straps look like they are cutting into the skin, and the bumps, or bunions on sides of the foot show. That is not attractive!

    Shoes that look uncomfortable are not stylish by any means, and these look like little torture chambers. Cut to contact the foot in all the wrong places, laces that cut into the skin – if you’re talking to someone and they keep glancing at your shoes, believe me, Darling – it’s NOT because they’re flattering!

    I hate them. Toe cleavage is ugly and makes shoes look cheap. Company too cheap to use enough fabric to actually cover the foot? The twine wrapping the foot and ankle looks binding and seems to be squeezing the skin…ouch. No! No! No! and I am a real shoe freak..love shoes of all types.

    Ha! I love you guys!

    They look soooooo uncomfortable!! Like they’re choking her feet and ankles!!!! Awful.

  10. Sonya October 26, 2015 at 2:35 PM

    Simply put, these shoes are ugly.

  11. Shana October 26, 2015 at 6:23 PM

    They make feet look 3 sizes larger because of the extra pointy toe but at the same time the feet don’t fit in and are spilling out of the shoe. so unflattering!

    THE UGLIEST SHOE I HAVE EVER SEEN. THESE SHOES MAKE THIS WOMAN LOOK AS IF SHE TRIED TO SHOVE HER BIG FEET INTO A SHOE THAT WAS TOO SMALL FOR HER. I SEE BUNIONS, BLISTERS AND RASHES IN THIS WOMAN’S FUTURE. I BET SHE CAN’T WEAR THEM LONGER THAN ONE HOUR. A MAN WHO HATES WOMEN MUST HAVE DESIGNED THESE SHOES.
