    All my heels I wear have no straps because, like you, I love me some super tall heels and most come without a strap!

    Honestly, I wouldn’t worry too much about finding a shoe with a strap. Find a super cute pair that comfortable (or as comfortable as tall heels can be) and fits well and you shouldn’t have to worry.

    I think you should go with whatever makes you most comfortable.

    Personally, d’orsay shoes like the third ones NEVER stay on my feet. I don’t know if I have a narrow heel or what, but regular, strapless heels (without the cut-out on the side) are fine.

    i dont think those will fall off your feet! i am definitely a regular heel wearer, and almost all of my heels are pumps with no straps. i have no issue with them slipping whatsoever.

    if you do find that slipping is a problem, you can just pick up some “foot petals” which will definitely help your foor stay in the shoe. you can get them at nordstrom in the hoisery department, or online i am sure. 🙂

    If you are planning to do a choreographed first dance, the dance instructor would prefer for you to wear shoes with an ankle strap. If not, I think you are fine with either a sling back or a shoe with a back like the ones you have posted above.

    For my wedding, I will be wearing a shoe with a back because when I wear a sling back heel with long pants or skirt, I often get the bottom hem caught on the sling or my heel causing me to trip. If this does not happen to you then it should not be a problem.

    Seriously, there’s no such thing as theoretical shoe-wearing. Everyone’s feet are SO different. The only way to know is to try them on.

    If you haven’t been introduced to zappos. com already (doubtful, but–) they offer free shipping both ways (returns included) and an entire YEAR to return the shoes for a full refund; shipping is fast (I usually get mine within a day of ordering) and the selection is huge. Plus their site is really good at showing you shoes from all angles, providing reviews, and even videos on most of the shoes so you can see what the shoe looks like on an actual person’s foot. So if you can’t get to the shoestore this is is a cost-free way of trying on shoes before buying.

    I wore those exact shoes with the ankle strap that you posted by Coloriffics.  I didn’t think they were the most beautiful shoes, so I had a different pair just for pictures.  But the coloriffics shoes with the ankle strap were AWESOME! They didn’t slide around, didn’t give me blisters, and were extremely comfortable for 8 hours! By midnight only the soles of my feet hurt so I changed into flip flops, but I still think I was better off than most girls at my wedding! Most girls were dancing in their bare feet by the end of the night!

    I seriously love d’orsays, and considered the pair in your third photo. I went with a different d’orsay which of course still lacked an ankle strap. I had no issue with them staying on my feet. This will vary a lot based on how a particular shoe fits on your feet.
