Jennifer Lawrence is a big fan.

For those who love the feeling of having their bare toes out but don’t love exposing them to the elements, I suggest dabbling in the world of mesh shoes. Yes, really. Mesh shoes have been causing a stir on the internet; some people despise them and wish they would disappear, while others couldn’t be more grateful for the chance to let their dogs, err toes, out, and celebs are totally on board, too.

Think of the mesh as a protective yet breathable encasing for your feet, especially for city dwellers who would rather be caught dead than walk outside with exposed toes—there are simply too many elements to avoid. This type of naked shoe is particularly great for summer, when the idea of a traditional ballet flat sounds too hot. With netted shoes, you still get the look of a ballerina, but with a refreshing breeze.

Jennifer Lawrence regularly wears her mesh flats, while other celebs like Chrissy Teigen and Zendaya have taken them out for a spin, too. But, given the warm weather and the season of toes, expect to see plenty more A-lister step out in some version of this controversial, squint-to-see footwear that looks nearly naked. I love an illusion shoe!

Ahead, I’ve rounded up a few of the best mesh ballet flats at various price points, so you can rock this season’s hottest trend on any budget.

The removable chain ankle strap allows you to dress them up or down depending on the occasion and can even double as jewelry. J.Crew is a master at basics, and these sequin square-toed flats are sure to be a staple in your summer wardrobe.

When looking for a shoe that’s not only fashionable but comfortable enough to walk miles in, I usually turn to Dolce Vita. I was thrilled to see the brand hop onto this trend because I knew they’d do it right. With four colors to choose from—black, cream, silver, and toffee—there’s something for everyone. A charming leather strap keeps you securely in place and adds an expensive look to the shoes.
