Strappy sandals are typically dainty. They’re delicate and (let’s be honest) sometimes uncomfortable. As we type this we’re having flashbacks of skinny leather ankle straps cutting into the flesh of our Achilles. Stinging…burning…take ’em off! Soooooo, you can imagine what a pleasant (less traumatic) surprise it was to see stars step out this week in more forgiving footwear with thicker, less blood-thirsty straps. Cameron Diaz promoted her new movie Bad Teacher at CinemaCon wearing bold Lanvin pumps that featured wide toe and ankle straps. Meanwhile, Amber Lancaster popped by the launch of the 2011 Victoria’s Secret SWIM Collection wearing futuristic gold and tan heels that had wide straps AND a cross foot strip for added support. Then there was Victoria Justice who accented her bright blue midriff/skirt combo with chic pewter baby-platforms at Perez Hilton’s Blue Ball Birthday Party. All of these pumps are serious feet treats, but which pair is your favorite?
