The laced-up look made the Fall '12 rounds in New York City, Milan, and Paris. Whether you approach it from a ladylike avenue or opt for an over-the-top sexy style, lace-up detailing has dominated every shoe silhouette this season. To prove our point, we've got three standout cases. Salvatore Ferragamo gave us the ultimate lesson in sultry velvet-meets-flamenco lace-ups, Balenciaga took on a sportier vibe with a wider lace-up front, and Tory Burch kept it ultrafeminine with a lace-up oxford heel.
