What kind of shoes?
Tue, 03-01-2005 - 9:13pm

I need to buy some black dress sandals (preferably with a higher heel since I'm only 5'3") but I'm trying to figure out what would make my feet look smaller (because I'm that short yet wear a size 8 1/2-9)

So what styles of strappy dress shoes would make my banana boats look a little less lengthy??? I heard the T-strap was out, for if you don't have long, lean legs, it just won't work. And the old pair I have have way too many straps--I think it just makes my feet look longer. So any ideas or suggestions?

Wow, well I feel that the best thing to do is just hit a shoe store and try on different styles until you come to one that will work for you.

i guess my first question is whether or not you really need sandles? pumps are, of course, the best way to make your feet look smaller. and you could do a sexy pump with an ankle strap and high shaped heels.

if you absolutly must have sandles then you should go as high on the heel as you can stand. the guys will appreciate it and it will make your legs and buttucks more shapely. they won't be looking at the size of your feet :) but don't go as far as platforms - those are a little too cheesy for that kind of affair.

the style of the sandles won't come into play much - find something that makes you feel sexy :)

good luck.
