ANKLE CUFFS! are up,coming, staying and sexy!

The biggest SHOE TREND, that I really really like....ankle cuffs maybe? Oh yes! And not only they were everywhere @ New York Fashion Week, but you will see them now @ many top designer boutiques here in NYC.
This is not a "new" trend. Ankle cuff shoes, have always been on the Fashion repertoire of shoe Designers...but what makes them special this time?

  • They are bolder, bigger, chunkier...screaming...look at me!!!!
  • They are not only designed for sandals....traditionally used to keep our feet in place, by grabbing our ankles tightly. Toes will usually tend to slip towards the empty space at the tip of sandals (specially if you have narrow or thin feet).....
  • This ankle cuffs are not functional, but Decorative.
  • Shoes are decorated by wearing a separate ankle cuff on top!
  • Pants are being pulled up and folded at the hemline, so everyone can see the "decorated" ankles!

Take a look at the pictures, the first 3 pairs have an ankle cuff incorporated as part of the shoe design, the other 5 have individual ankle cuffs, that can be worn with "almost" any shoe!

Beware!!! Caution!!!!

  • If you have very wide ankles, or short and wide legs, ankle cuffs will further create width and visually shorten the legs. Specially if they are from a shiny material, like the ones we see in gold.
  • If you have thick ankles but you must use ankle cuffs this recommendation is that you wear them with high heels and stick with a balanced width, too thin or too chunky is not recommended.
