Each summer, a shoe emerges as the one to have in your closet. Last year, it was the Adidas Samba, with practically every It girl on our radar sporting the style traditionally reserved for the soccer field. This summer, the forerunner for the It Shoe is the rather unexpected mesh flat. Whether rendered in fishnet like the always-sold-out style from Alaïa or in a delicate mesh like the OG style that started it all (from none other than The Row), there’s a style here for everyone. Jennifer Lawrence was recently spotted in the Alaïa version, and a simple scroll through Instagram will demonstrate influencers and A-listers alike are picking up a pair. Although it’s a rather demanding style in that you should probably have a fresh pedicure when rocking them, there’s something alluring about having some extra air on your feet during hot city days without exposing yourself fully in a sandal or flip-flop. Keep scrolling to see our picks for the burgeoning shoe trend.
