From Straitjacket Buckle Boots to Biker Chic Sneakers

 - Oct 23, 2011
Over the last year, fashion has had an obsession with tough-chick accents such as zippers, studs and buckles; this list of buckled shoes just skims the surface of this badass fashion direction.

Associated with rebellion and sometimes craziness (think straitjackets), buckles have been a favorite of designers as they lend a touch of attitude to almost anything. Sandals, sneakers and especially boots have all been subject to belts and buckles, which instantly create a more stylish and mischievous look. For fashionistas, buckled shoes also round out other rebellious pieces, whether it's a motorcycle jacket or liquid leather leggings.

From strappy shoe boots to romantically rugged footwear, the options for buckled footwear are endless. If buckled shoes are on your fall and winter must-have list, make sure you look through this collection for ideas before you embark on your shopping trip.
