Let’s be honest. When it comes to wearing heels, some days are harder than others. For those moments of weakness, we could use a little extra support. Enter ankle straps! They’re like seat belts for your feet, and you always wear your seat belt, right?? If you’re worried about them making your legs look shorter or stockier, then pair them with some skinnies. But try to show them off if you can! Straps like these red hot Alexander Wangs (on NET-A-PORTER for $625) are too chic to be kept hidden.
Gianvito Rossi Strappy Ankle Cuff Sandal: When you go on vacation, leave the nude pumps at home – pack the nude sandals instead! The leg-lengthening effect will be just as strong, even with a cuff. At Barneys New York for $1,000.
Pierre Hardy Ankle Band Back Zip Sandal: A lethal combination of light and dark snakeskin will leave even the strongest feeling weak in the knees. At Barneys New York for $895.
Narciso Rodriguez Ankle Strap Side Buckle Sandal: I loved meeting with Narciso in NYC earlier this week, and this is why – the man is too talented! These emerald python panels will have everyone glowing green with envy. At Barneys New York for $1,050.
Nina Ricci Netted Heel Sandal: Between the thin ankle strap and the grommeted heel, there’s nothing but net. If you’re afraid you can’t pull off the fishnet trend, start with this wider knit. At Barneys New York for $695.
Sergio Rossi Asymmetric Open Toe Sandal: With the sleek gold trim, it looks like these suede sandals have been touched by Midas himself. The full support of the asymmetric straps will make teetering around in 4-inch heels a breeze. At Barneys New York for $735.
