Manolo says, finally, the weekend is here! And what better way to express your independence from the working day than by wearing these cute and flirty ankle-strap, patent leather flats from the Belle by Sigerson Morrison.

    Surely the Manolo jests! These are not merely “flirty”, these are the dead sexy little shoes for driving the potential beau out of his mind!

    Sorry…they look very cute in theory but the combination of the flat and the ankle strap is going to give any woman who isn’t a 6ft model tree trunks for legs.

    I’m of the opinion that both the tall girls and the short girls have the super-fabulous legs!

    Those look sweaty to me. I know it’s purely psychological, because that photo was taken to highlight the shininess of the patent and so my mind interprets it as plastic. But still.

    The ankle strap looks like something my mother’s toy poodle would wear. Very disconcerting.

    Am I crazy for seeing something vaguely bondage-like about these shoes? It’s like…bondage grannie…not digging it =X

    I can’t wear heels due to a leg and back injury. These shoes are just adorable.

    ShannonShoe: I would think they would be a problem only for those with cankles.

    I have the curse of the cankles so no matter how I adore shoes like these, I cannot wear them :(

    Blythe, rest assured that no matter how problematic your cankles are, mine are worse, and my feet are too short and stubby for my legs as well. :( I wear flats only out of desperation (if I’m going to be walking long distances), and even then I try to wear ankle-length skirts or long pants (which totally don’t go with flats). I kvetch and curse every night as my husband rubs my cramped, sore feet, but for the sake of everyone else’s eyes, I’m not giving up my pointy-toed high heels any time soon.

    God those are cute! They look like Minnie Mouse shoes. Sadly, with my dead-flat feet, I can’t wear flats of any kind without looking like I have Pig feet.

    ShannonShoe and Hmm are both right! I’ve never understood Manolo’s like of the ankle strap, which poses the same aesthetic-existential questions as a choker. That is, the choker/ankle strap clearly breaks the line that the eye wants to see, so from whence comes the appeal that’s not a formal visual one? The appeal of the choker, whether ribbon or diamonds, comes from signaling. Why does this appeal extend to the foot?

    I see these and I think of ‘Heidi’, could a dirndl be far away?
