If perfection could be wrapped up in a shoe, these Summerissima Crisscross Platform Sandals by Christian Louboutin would be a paramount example. I love any shoe with an ankle strap as they are always minimalistic and have such a chic look. The red suede heel gives such a youthful and modern appearance, but doesn’t take away from the classical aspect either. Although these are already sold out at $995, take a look at the beautiful and budget-friendly options we found below.

Steve Madden “UNLEASH” Crisscross Platform Sandals

As a very wearable platform, the “UNLEASH” Sandals by Steve Madden have a certain charisma that I cannot quite pinpoint. They have such an elegant exterior, but are also adorned with an edgy flair. They can be worn with really anything in one’s closet without deducting attention from an entire outfit. Although they are noticeably beautiful, they are yet not flashy, which is what I personally like about them the most. My favorite would have to be the black version, but they are also available in the tan multi color as pictured below.
