Those Strappy Sandals You Wore to Prom Are Back




Bunions be damned, because your feet are going to look like cute little pot roasts this summer. The barely-there sandals you wore to prom are back and podiatrists worldwide are shaking. The style is single-soled, multi-strapped, sometimes metallic or pastel (to match your taffeta Jessica McClintock), and has a mom-approved mid-heel stiletto. And you don’t have to wear them to a formal dance held in a school gym masquerading as a Hilton ballroom. These are meant for daily life. Style them down with a suit for work or make them casual with denim. It is 2019, after all.

High-end, indie, and mall brands alike are participating in the theme, including industry favorites like The Row and By Far. That means you can find a style that fits your (prom) budget. We’re convinced the dainty style is a direct reaction the orthopedic footwear trend, so our feet are ready for the mild torture (akin to the high school experience). Shop 10 of our favorite Prom Heels, here.
