So. I have this huge problem with heels. My feet slip out of them. I saw a picture of these shoes at a site (shopheylady.com), and some of them have straps (see picture) while other do not. Do you think I could add straps to shoes I liked? Or…any ideas of pretty strappy sandals to wear?

I’m not sure about DIY’ing, but you could take them to a seamstress and I’m sure they could do it.

Now that I am looking at that picture more, it looks like two different shoes!

Yes. I’ve done that before when I was like 15 lol.

you can totally do this. you would need to find the right pair of heels for it though. If you got a REALLY strong glue, we are talking aircraft epoxy variety (which isnt too hard to find) remove the insole on either side where you want the strap and slide the elastic ribbon under it. glue in place, let dry for a day or two and try them out. If it doesn’t work it is easy enough to remove the straps becuase you haven’t messed with the out sdie of the shoe. if it doesn’t work take them to a cobbler, if you have one in town, or a leather worker would be able to manage too.

You could find a place that does shoe repair and see if they’d be able to sew a strap on. The guy who fixes the tips of my pointy shoes and replaces broken straps on other shoes does miracles, so I bet a good shoe place could do it!

I would take the shoes to a cobbler before a seamstress. It shouldn’t cost too much & they usually have the extra leather etc you would need to make the strap.
I guess you could DIY it but having seen my grandmother work with leather it’s not easy or simple work!
