Every time I see those celebrity favorite Christian Louboutin ‘Summerissima’ sandals (as seen on the likes of Katy Perry, Emma Stone, Minka Kelly and Anna Faris), I am always reminded of these Juicy Couture ‘Flash’ ankle strap sandals. Okay, so maybe it’s the other way around and Juicy Couture was the one who was “inspired by” Christian Louboutin. But Juicy Couture still very much owns this sandal and has their casual-glam trademark written all over it:
Juicy Couture ‘Flash’ ankle strap sandals in natural metallic/black, $225.00 to $227.95
It’s all in the little details, like that summery rough linen strap and a more finely woven red linen fabric covering the 4″ block heel. Things get a little more sophisticated on the suede platform sole and black vachetta ankle strap, but that fun, reminds-you-of-your-childhood-days velcro closure keeps things from being too serious.
Juicy Couture also manages to transcend their tacky velour tracksuit rep with this sandal and has come up with a style that you can easily see fashionistas, fashion bloggers and chic celebs wearing.
A nice step up for Juicy Couture, isn’t it?
