Don’t get us wrong—we could wax poetic about our favorite mules and slides for stories on end, but if you haven’t tried wearing slingback shoes in a while, now might be the time. In a sea of shoes, the pretty (and timeless) style has often been overlooked as a chic and comfortable footwear option. But there are some seriously chic (and comfortable!) options to choose from.

Made with a strap that catches your heel, you get the comfort of a sandal without worrying about your shoes falling off as you’re walking. Sounds like a win-win situation to us. Not to mention how utterly stylish the most recent versions on the market have been.

From sleek flats to stiletto versions of this style, slingback shoes are a great alternative to your favorite strappy sandals or classic pumps. Wear them with a pair of blue jeans as a simple switch from your regular sneakers or style them with a pretty dress for the summer. Whatever you do, you won’t regret adding these to your wardrobe.

There you have it—these might just become your next favorite shoe style.
