Yeah, your dream shoe is in exception to most rules; it's not really an ankle boot, those straps aren't exactly laces, and mary jane style cutouts on bootie-things aren't run of the mill. We see why these leave you Strapped for Panache, but here are some options that straddle the lines between strappy/cutout sandals, shoes, and boots:
1. The inspiration: Strapped for Panache Boot ($95)
2. Qupid Finella Wrap Around Heels ($30)
4. KG Winslow Tan Shoe Boot ($215)
5. Steven Buckled Wrap Bootie ($198)
6. Jen Cutout Bootie ($198)
7. All Saints Martha Sandals ($57)
8. Vic Matie Boots ($428)
10. Strapped Satin Boot ($52)
11. Eos Boot ($300)
