Do you think these shoes will actually stay on?

I've been looking for red strappy high heels for summer for ages. I don't want ankle straps, much as I love them, as they are a disaster on my short legs. Just come across these and they are just what I am looking for. BUT, they look to me as though you would just walk right out of them, if that makes sense! I guess they must stay put as someone is modelling them, but wondering what others think before I order them. (hope the link works!) TIA

OK, so the link doesn't seem to work ... blush

nottallatall Wed 04-May-16 15:45:38

I will try again.

nottallatall Wed 04-May-16 15:48:21

Well, obviously I cannot do links confused but at least I can do smileys grin!

Link still not working. Can you give us the make/description/item code?

No I think they will ping off. Nice though so worth a try?

Oh they're pretty!

Have you considered a staple gun?

I think you need to amputate your little toes and then use this stuff

I had a similar pair back when I wore heels and the bloody back strap always drooped down then I would step out of them. I loved the look of them if I stood still but as soon as I wanted to move.......

Thank you all for replies, sorry I was out for afternoon. Thanks CreviceImp for the working link! I am prepared to suffer to gain a bit of extra height, but even I draw the line at staples and superglue grin

So you have personal experience here Minty and what you describe is exactly what I thought would happen. I need to think of something, as I loooove these shoes. Velcro pads on the bottom of my feet??!! I could just stand still in them and get people to carry me around! smile

MintyChops Wed 04-May-16 20:39:59

They are so beautiful it might be worth Velcro, superglue and standing still grin. You know, for all that I did step out of them and find the droopy blackstrap annoying, I felt really sexy in mine and didn't fall over ONCE. I was on high alert at all times but I think it was worth it..... Do it, do it!

I had a similar pair and they never stayed on. Drove me mad. Sorry.... Much prefer heels with a strap across the front as I am a bit accident prone. Keep trying different ones on and you'll find a pair to suit.

I'm a wheelchair user and would so buy them as wheelchair shoes.

I couldn't wear those in a million years. I went to a wedding in a similar pair from Karen Millen and I was literally crippled by the end of the day/night and also fell over more than once (alcohol and dark.) I have never worn them since and they cost £120 plus matching bag £80.

Ankle straps are the only way.

You could possibly wear them at a seated event eg meal where you get from a taxi to the restaurant and sit down all night.

"I couldn't wear those in a million years."

Neither could I. My eyes are watering just looking at them.

They are very pretty, but very unwearable unless you don't intend walking in them.

I have slightly misshapen feet so that style stay on for me normally, I wouldn't buy that particular pair though. My heel sticks out a long way and that holds the strap up so they don't fall off. It comes down to whether they are a good fit for your foot. One problem with that particular pair is that the strap at the back of the ankle is not elasticated so you won't get as good a fit with it.

No support in those, I wouldn't bother

Greenteandchives Wed 04-May-16 21:05:47

I have some similar ones. They stay on fine, but I don't walk far in them. smile

mrsvilliers Wed 04-May-16 21:58:22

Those shoes would stay on my feet, they would however rub the back of my ankles to the point of being unwearable!

OP I once fell in love with a very similar pair of shoes from Pied a Terre. I ended up cutting the back strap off (it's much less noticeable than you think it would be). I wore my cut off shoes to a variety of weddings, felt INCREDIBLY glamorous and didn't fall over once. Buy!

nottallatall Wed 04-May-16 22:29:46

I can't be doing with ankle straps cutting across my ankles, my legs are shorter than Jeremy Corbyn's expenses list. I bet they're really comfortable - they look really comfortable grin

So, MintyChops didn't fall over once, mrsvilliers didn't fall over once, Startingover2016 fell over more than once (BUT alcohol and dark). That's 2 to 1, I'm buying!

Oh they're lovely. Would tit tape help do you think?

Ilovetorrentialrain Wed 04-May-16 22:53:49

Hmm depends, are they for walking about much (daytime heavy use) or for special occasions/going out for the evening? If the latter I'm sure they'd be fine. I have problems with sling backs 'dropping' on my ankle but if you love these just get 'em!

minnymoobear Wed 04-May-16 22:59:08

Absolutely gorgeous! Love em but wouldn't be able to walk in them so would never buy sad.

nottallatall Wed 04-May-16 23:01:23

Thanks Hobbes8, that's a good idea! Not for heavy use Ilove, just fancy-pantsing about! grin

They are gorgeous, I would buy them and try walking around the house in them as ASOS do free returns.
