These Derek Lam Laced Up Sandals first caught my attention as I was persusing a fashion magazine and spotted an ad for Derek Lam's Spring 2010 Campaign (featuring those amazing Stars and Stripes outfits). I was immediately drawn to the cool cutouts that reach all the way to the ankles-super flattering on calves! I also love how the edgy suede and cork heel create a killer combo that looks just as good coupled with a satin dress as they would with simple leggings. Even though these have been out for quite some time, I am happy I only noticed them now since they are more than half off at Saks.com! Get them quickly before they sell out! On sale for $315.99, originally $790. I am currently obsessed with laced up booties, platforms, flats, sandals...basically any shoe that ties up!
