4. Cut it out.
Almost every booth I visited seemed to feature laser cuts and cutout effects on open-toed styles. Combined with buckles, lace-up styling, or zips, they make for shoes that are bound to be the focus of an outfit. Clockwise from top left: Stéphanie Classic, Diba True, Miucha, and Carrano.
