Jenni Kayne Ankle Strap 1

The Ankle Strap Collection

This spring I took a lot of inspiration from architecture, specifically the work of Rudolph Schindler. He was one of the pioneers of West Coast modernism and was known for marrying strength and warmth in beautiful ways. Inspired by Schindler's iconic California-based projects, we designed a series of pared down Italian leather shoes finished with architectural ankle straps. Instead of traditional buckle closures, we used D-ring loops to keep the look and feel of the sandals and slippers natural and easy. I love wearing these shoes with a great cropped jean or a delicate, midi-length skirt. I think if you can give them space and show off their form, the ankle straps add a kind of confidence to the shoes and a sophistication to any outfit. XX Jenni
