With a talent for combining subtlety and striking design, Ann Demeulemeester uses minimalism, stark lines, and austere silhouettes to create a shoe that has simplicity but is also a gorgeous piece on its own. Multiple ankle straps wrap around to create bold angles, while the strap around the toes is bare and functional. The only ornamentation on the ultra-soft suede straps are utilitarian black metal buckles, while the 3.5 inch stiletto heel adds just a bit of femininity and delicateness. These sandals are the perfect warm-weather shoe to wear with anything from a loose mid-length tank dress to a fitted sheath, and with everything in between. This is a truly all-purpose shoe!
