A pointed toe, a shoe in the shade that matches your skin tone, or a chunky sole — these are the details that make up a leg lengthening shoe. And no, just because they’re giving off the illusion of height doesn’t mean they have to be heels. The sandals, sneakers, and heels below are carefully selected, featuring trendy details that are functional too.
The wraparound ankle straps are just high enough, so they won’t cut your calf at an awkward spot or make your legs look stumpy. And the platforms on these sneakers will draw eyes downward, making it seem as though your stems go on forever. Of course you could always invest in Christian Louboutin’s new nude flats or the iconic Stuart Weitzman Nudist. But while these styles are famous for getting the job done, we have also found some stylish alternatives.
