Buckles are back! A round-up of this season’s buckled shoes

Shoe buckles used to be the must-have items for men in the 17th century—along with stockings, ruffled shirts and big wigs.

While the trend of wearing the latter items has pretty much perished, somehow buckles have found their way back into mid-calf and ankle boots this season. Whether single or double, straight or crisscross, buckles on boots seem to be a trend that won’t buckle under anytime soon.
