Whether they be flat sandals or models with a medium or high heel, there’s a whole lot of laces, ties and ribbons being wrapped around the ankle this summer. These ankle cuff shoes and their variants are some of the most popular models in stores and online. The laces are often wrapped right up to the knee in an epitome of gladiator style. The latest trend? Tying ankle cuff sandals up over trousers – both loose and straight cut – as influencers are currently doing in their Instagram posts.
