Move over, square-toe sandals. These blunt-toed shoes have dominated both runways and streets for the past several summers, but it looks like Gianvito Rossi is taking a different approach toward summer footwear options for women.

The Italian designer’s “Giza” sandals seem to be the shoe of summer 2021. In fact, they’re even taking over Instagram feeds.

You can buy them at Mytheresa, Net-A-Porter, Harvey Nichols, Farfetch, and Browns Fashion.

Why are the “Giza” sandals so popular? Simple — it’s the shoe’s unique look. These sandals were designed to be a modern version of the Roman string cage sandal.

That’s also probably why they share a name with the city of Giza, home of the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

Not only are these summer sandals stylish and fashionable — they’re comfortable as well.

Lace-up heeled sandals aren’t traditionally known for their high comfort but extraordinary lamb leather makes these shoes soft.

The crossover straps allow for easy movement and seamless walking. These smooth straps not only elongate the legs but also hold the ankle in place to prevent rolling or twisting.

The leather laces also allow wearers to customize their look. Laces can be bound tightly around the ankle, or loosely up the leg. 

We have to admit — they look chic both ways.

And, to give even more options for comfort? Gianvito Rossi is also offering a flat version of this design.

The only design difference is the absence of a heel. Both the heeled and flat versions are available in classic black and sienna brown shades.

If you’re looking to add a touch of glamour to your flirty warm-weather outfits, don’t hesitate to grab your own pair of “Giza” sandals.

Style the heeled version with cocktail dresses and pencil skirts for a more official look, and pair the flat version with shorts, mini skirts or wide palazzo pants.

The quality of the leather paired with the timeless design make this Gianvito Rossi design a worthy investment that will never go out of style.
