- A Pointed Lace Up Shoe Affair...

So, these pointed lace up flats are everywhere at the moment. Admittedly, I wasn't sure what to think at first (this seems to be an ongoing pattern with me). Don't get me wrong, I've loved lace up shoes for a while; I wore grey lace up heels to my school leavers prom 5 years ago. With the return of the lace up trend, I dusted them off and gave them some TLC, but what did I think of pointed flats? Are they tacky? Classy?

Well, after hours of stalking Instagram & Pinterest (guilty) I had soon fallen head over heels flats. I have a few pairs of pointed flats, but with so much style inspiration out there, a gap for a lace up addition soon appeared in my shoe collection.

And then arrived these ASOS LANA beauties. Seriously, ASOS is the place to go; they have a fab variety of shoes in this style at purse-friendly prices. These have immediately become my go-to pair of shoes, they're so comfortable and really add something to an outfit.

Head over to my Instagram to see the first of many #shoefie & #fwis posts with these stunners! My love for this style has certainly grown, and I'm now hankering after the electric blue pair - *swoon*.

What do you think of this hot on-trend style? Let me know in the comments below!



  1. I'm not sure whether I'm in love with this trend or not. Some days I NEED a pair, then others I think they look horrible. I think I might just skip on this trend :(

  2. At first, I wasn't sure about this style of shoes either but now, I like them. Still not sure if I'll get a pair, but they look fab on you. x

  3. I love these but I can't wear them as my feet are really wide and I think they'd look...wrong. Sadly :(

  4. Great choice Karen! I'm absolutely in love with the trend. The shoe is not only comfy but also sophisticated as it combines the professional look of ballerina shoes with an on trend pointed detail. Got a pair from New Look and they are sooooo fancy.

  8. That is soooo pretty on you! I never tried laced up shoes, for some reason I find them to be very inconvenient to me but then again, I'm not the most patient person walking on earth. Haha!

  14. I LOVE wearing lace-up shoes but I HATE wearing pointy shoes. So there's my dilemma haha. I think they look great on other people, but they just make my feet look GINORMOUS... Sigh.

    They look ace on you though hun!! xx

  18. The shoes look so pretty.
    I really like pumps but I would rather something like this with lace to tighten it around the foot.

  19. I think the shoes look great, have been debating getting a similar pair myself but I need a not too thin sole or I find flats quite uncomfy

  20. Very cute shoes and I'm loving your braid!


  21. This look lovely on and will go with lots of outfits. They don't look very comfortable though and this is always what drives me buying a pair Lucy x

  22. I have to admit I am a huge lace up flat girl so I absolutely love these. I just think they're so chic and work for so many occasions!


  23. I really wish I could wear shoes like these I bought some and am way too short and stumpy- YOU on the other hand look incredible and I love your hair like this, so pretty xx

  24. I'm seeing these gorgeous pair of shoes everywhere and I love how chic they look, plus they really make an outfit look special somehow. I think I need to try them on first to see if I can personally pull them off x
