Lace on shoes is a funny one - personally I think it often looks a little tacky. These shoes, however, do not look in the slightest bit tacky, and as an example of how to do lace on shoes well I think I should buy them immediately. Don't you?
C'mon guys, as far as flimsy excuses for buying myself shoes go, that was a pretty good one wasn't it? Wasn't it? Guys?
The Ellamay peeptoe is AU$89.95 from Novo Shoes, who have stores in Australia and New Zealand, and whose website only ships within Australia, so you non-Antipodean types might have to keep looking for some good lace-on-shoes examples.
