Calling all avant-gardians: strap in and buckle up. Multi-buckle shoes are fit for the daring so wallflowers step aside. I can't deny my lust for these Balmain Uma Buckle Boots ($1,275). Don't you love the simultaneously strong and sexy vibe? If you're brave enough, step loud, step proud.
No matter where you're going, buckle up and enjoy the walk. Buckles have sprouted all over the place on boots: on the front, in the center, on the sides. And they're not all created equal. You'll even notice some experimental boots with stacked buckles. Fab!
This Juicy Couture Jett Buckle Bootie ($448) is among the more posh styles on the market. The polished buckle makes this otherwise-plain boot more glamorous. Whether you're rugged, prim, modern, or old-fashioned, there's a buckle for you.
You know that signature Fendi buckle — it's recognizable from a mile away. It's found on the brand's bags, belts, and footwear, like this Fendi Peep-Toe Pump ($475). In some instances, such as on the Fendi B bag, it can be tacky, but when the buckle is small, it's so cute. Lucky for you Fendi lovers, I found an equally buckle-iscious alternative that's cheaper and way more comfortable!

Buckles are having a brilliant moment in footwear. So we can't all afford Cate's Roger Vivier brocade-buckled pumps, but we can aspire to be as sophisticated and lovely as Cate the Great. As she exhibits — a great pair of buckles lends itself a perfect match to a smart LBD. The baby bump adds charm, but isn't a necessary accessory.
