Along with the resurgence of the T-Strap, the criss cross element is the next style with a sophisticated and "slendorizing" effect. Whether thin or wide, because the meeting point of the straps is in the middle of the instep, the focus is set on the narrowest part of the foot. I've noticed the trend not only in open-air sandals but in the fall designs as well, shoes and booties alike.
These are my favorite picks.
