I don’t know about you guys — but while I like the look of strappy shoes (and often find them more comfortable than regular pumps or flats), I have zero patience these days for actually buckling and unbuckling a strap. Getting out of my house with kids is hard enough without another project, right? So a shoe with a zipper has become absolutely non-negotiable for me. I like the look of these slightly rock and roll flats with crisscross ankle straps — and hurray, zippers. They’re $198 at Amazon, Zappos, and Nordstrom. Frye Carson Knotted Ballet Flat
