It seems like the first rule anyone learns about leg-lengthening shoes is to avoid the ankle strap at all costs. People warn that ankle straps have the ability to turn slim legs into elephant cankles, so we stayed away for as long as we could stand hobbling around in our slingbacks and pumps. Hobble not, we say! There are plenty of stable — but still sexy — ankle-strap sandals that give you the support you need without bulky straps that mess up your leg line. In nude, thicker straps; thin, double straps; or sneaky, colorblocked straps that won't be too jarring, these are the ankle-strap sandals that work twice as hard for you.
