Many-strapped sandals are big news this season:, and the more straps you can count above your ankle, the better!From high street to high end, you can't go wrong if it's got more than four straps to do up - just make sure you leave extra time before you run for the bus...

Here are a few great examples of multi-strapped summer shoes from our recent footwear forays. From top left, clockwise:

Black Ellos multi-strap wedges: £31.50 reduced from £45 at La Redoute. Shoewawa says: this is a brilliant affordable way to nail this look, taking advantage of the reduced price S/S 12 items you can find online. Chunky silver toned buckles and ultra thick straps make this a contemporary and urban choice.

Surface to Air multi buckle wedge in navy: £253 at LuisaViaRoma. A very luxe take on the same look, these navy wedges by hip label Surface to Air are made from soft, textured calfskin giving them a snake-like effect. We love the blue, and this these would be a fabulous edition to any chic edgy wardrobe this summer. 

Giambattista Valli strap sandal: Where the other styles are a little more urban, this one has Giambattista Valli's signature romantic quality. Perfect for dressed-up summer days, they're a feminine option for anyone with £919 to spend on the look...find them at Farfetch

Organza Wrap black multi strap sandal: One of our favourite styles this season from Clarks, these versatile, casual and trend-led sandals are available to buy now at £54.99. Benefitting from Clarks' 'software' technology, they'll be deceptively easy on the feet, too. 


Multi-strap high-leg sandals by Gianmarco Lorenzi: If you're really crazy for the look, you'll want to check out Gianmarco Lorenzi's extreme take on the style. Worn with a daringly-cut dress in sheer fabric, these would look simply awe-inspiring. They are currently half price at Farfetch where they're £424 (was £868)
