20 Lace-Up Leather Sandals for Summer

Forget everything you thought you knew about lace-up leather sandals. This summer, they’re back—and better than ever. We’re ditching that knee-high Grecian vibe that reminds us of a music festival and instead opting for chicer styles that are more appropriate for everything from a casual office vibe to brunch with friends.

This season, we’re lacing our leather sandals up from ankle to mid-calf with belts, buckles, ribbons, and ties galore. In both exotic prints and brightly colored leather, there’s no style that’s off-limits for this sandal look. We’re stocking up on more than one, though, collecting everything from classic tan two-straps to leopard-printed versions to wavy rainbow cutouts and star-studded metallics.

Whether you choose to wear your lace-up leather sandals with your denim mini, vintage shorts, midi skirts, or cropped trousers this summer, it’s time to remind yourself of the summer-inspired trend all the fashion girls love.
