Spiked flat sandals are one of the season's biggest style innovations, and the look is being picked up by high street and high end designers alike. An easy way to introduce edgy and statement-making style into your everyday look, these are all styles that can be worn with your most casual summer gear - they'll also double up as foot-friendly formal options when you want to dress up without wearing heels.

Signalling a flat look for the season, designers such as Christian Louboutin and Giuseppe Zanotti have led the way in creating footwear that's as flashy as it is flat, and many of our favourite mid-range labels have quickly followed suit. Some have combined the look with the transparent trend for clear PVC sections on shoes, others have even worked it in to a floral look. All have gone for an almost completely flat heel, modelling their shoes around classic beach sandals. What's not to love?
