The popular trend for ties this summer extends not only to clothes, but also to shoes. Designers, nostalgic for the aesthetics of the Roman Empire, offer to mention sandals in the antique style – from “gladiators” to woven shoes. So, Valentino showed flat knee-high sandals with laces – from smooth leather to laces decorated with rivets. Alberta Ferretti bet on Grecian-style shoes in bright hues, and Christioan Dior released metallic gladiators with a closed toe.
Do not be afraid of the brutality of gladiator sandals. This season, designers have decorated them with ultra-thin and elegant straps, which you can tie as you like. Meanwhile, woven shoes have acquired rope weaves in neutral shades. Shoes in an antique style are quite easy to fit into a summer wardrobe. So, streetstyle influencers combine Greek-style sandals with cotton dresses, loose pants and relaxed shirts, knitted dresses with cutouts, denim skirts and bohemian looks.
