TodayÂ's images showcase the variety of lace ups and the undercurrents each look implies. When theyÂ've got a heel and lots of laces, as seen on Sienna Miller, above, they have a very naughty Victorian air. The gray patent version Gwyneth Paltrow wore reference menswear (they remind us of a stylish version of military dress oxfords), while Miss Moss picked a punky pair (try saying that five times, fast). We are especially fond of the orthopedic vibe of Carrie BradshawÂ's shoes as well.
If youÂ're interested in a peep-toe pair like CarrieÂ's, take a gander at Vince CamutoÂ's Maran Oxfords ($129.99). These patent leather, high heeled lace ups come in dark gray, dark red and black and have a hidden platform for greater foot comfort. Girls who want GwynethÂ's gray shoes should take a look at Circa Joan & DavidÂ's Sage Oxford Pump ($128.95). TheyÂ're made out of suede, resulting in a softer look than PaltrowÂ's pair. SiennaÂ's prim-and-proper heels are by Burberry, but we think Ash's Travis Lace Up Pumps are kindred spirit shoes ($185).
