We Just Solved the Biggest Problem With Slingback Heels

Our prediction: This year will be all about slingback heels. Selena Gomez has already stepped out in the style, and more and more fashion bloggers are embracing the trend, which leads us to believe it’s only a matter of time until everyone else catches on. I bought myself a pair of Manolo Blahnik slingback heels last week from The Real Real and am beyond obsessed with them. The only problem? As they're second-hand, the elastic on the heel has slightly stretched out, and after I take about six steps, they flick off the back of my feet. It annoyed me so much, I only lasted in them until lunchtime, then had to ask Google for an answer. After some digging around, I discovered Foot Petal Strappy Strips ($13), that you can stick to the inside of the strap to prevent your shoes from slipping off. Genius.
