Just that really, think I prefer just the one strap but thought I'd canvas opinions from you lit before I take a knife to them.
Single or double strap?

I like two.

I like 2 straps.

One is more 'office/work' appropriate (I.e plain) but two is something different and looks great.

Nice shoes!

I like two, it makes them more unusual.

What kind of office do you work in louise?They're covered in tiny bronze sequins grin
They're quite a lot 'bling-ier' than what I normally wear which is why I'm a bit dubious about 2 straps.
Looks like I'm in the minority though, thanks for the responses.

2 straps.
For some reason 2 straps is "sexier" I dunno. confused

1 strap is more flattering, the second strap hides your ankle. (Nice ankles btw)

JennaRoss Tue 15-Dec-15 19:52:35

YY 2 straps = sexy

Chewbecca Tue 15-Dec-15 19:52:43

Two is funkier / less sensible so better for parties IMO

One strap, that might be because I'm a shorty so straps on my legs make me look even shorter, you might not have this problem smile

I like 2!

2. Great ankles! Great shoes!

vindscreenviper Tue 15-Dec-15 20:10:15

Score is 3 for one strap and 8 for two so I think I'll hold off slicing the little tab that keeps the top strap in place.
I'm going to be wearing them tomorrow with coated black skinnies anyway so the top strap might be covered up, but I think I'll keep the 2 strap option open for now.

Thanks, you stylish lot

2 straps

1 strap = out
2 straps = out out

They're lovely. It must be nice to have slender ankles. My legs are the same shape from thigh to foot. Not a good look!

itsmeohlord Tue 15-Dec-15 20:10:42

one if you work in an office, two if you are a lady of the night

Thumbcat Tue 15-Dec-15 20:13:11

One strap looks better. Two is unflattering and looks like you're trying hard to be 'funky'.

Bodicea Tue 15-Dec-15 20:15:20

Two - more fashiony less frumpy

vindscreenviper Tue 15-Dec-15 20:16:33

Oops x-post with another vote for two grin

Here is the linky for the ebay seller, if anyone is interested (but only small sizes left).

I was going to buy a silver pair from John Lewis or Mint Velvet but they were sold out, so I saved myself about £50*

*but will no doubt spend it on taxis cos I can't walk very far in heels

FishOn Tue 15-Dec-15 20:18:22

Yep. 2 gets my vote too

BrendaandEddie Tue 15-Dec-15 20:19:14

i just checked back at the JL ones, so glad i got them in time!

love yours tho

vindscreenviper Tue 15-Dec-15 20:33:15

Ah-ha so it was you who bought MY SHOES Brenda

I'd have probably only worn them once then tossed them onto my huge pile of shoes that have had me begging total strangers for a piggy-back and will never see the light of day again. Easier to shrug it off if they only cost £15 grin

TotalConfucius Tue 15-Dec-15 20:57:50

Well, the thing is if they are already outside your accepted comfort zone then you have to just go for it with a double whammy. So 2 straps. In for a penny....
