So the August InStyle had a half page feature on pointy toe lace-up flats.
The gold standard, the Aquazzura Belgravia. First find below.

They had other cheaper options, but this one stood in terms of quality versus price. I was disappointed on how many were made in China and still expensive. Other styles by this company get high reviews on Zappos. Anyways I'm very tempted by both colors.

Nordstrom has an even cheaper option by Jeffrey Campbell, but I've had very mixed luck with that brand. Second find below.
