Did you know that when it comes to trending shoe style for spring, slingback high-heels are always in? See these beautiful slingback pumps.
There was a time when I hardly had the money to invest on a pair of beautiful pumps. When I went to church, I wore flat sandals. I envied the ladies who had high heels to wear with their dresses. Although I had a pair of trendy sneakers which I often wore to the university every Wednesday, which was our free day, since yes, we wore uniforms to our classes!, and which sneakers were to be replaced with another pair if and only if they´re too worn out, I was too hard up for money during my university days to have the luxury of wearing beautiful high heels.
If you asked me then what type of shoes I would buy if I had the money, I would probably have answered, “Any type as long as they´re gorgeous high heels.”
A few years later when I was working as a teacher, I wasn´t aware of it during that time but most of the high heels I bought were slingback. There´s something gracefully feminine in the way those straps wrap you around the back of your ankle.

But if you will ask me now what type of shoes I would invest on if I can buy only a pair of shoes, I would say slingback pumps. My personal favorite is slingback with pointed toe.

This season, Christian Louboutin is mostly about slingback pumps. From colorblocked to transparent sides, and from bow to cap toe, this iconic shoe brand is putting the romantic slingback pumps back to pedestal.

Whether pointed toe, open toe, classic pump, or sandal, the slingback silhouette is one of those that look as pretty on the foot as it does on the runway.
