I got my first pair of pointed toe pumps in college and proceeded to wear them almost daily – even to class. I loved those white heels (Yes, white! It was the ‘90s – don’t judge), but with my abnormally narrow feet, they were always slipping off. To remedy the problem, I tried every solution imaginable – heel pads, going down a size…nothing would make them fit. I even lost a shoe coming out of the car en route to my first business meeting. Pretty embarrassing! Eventually, I discovered slingbacks, and in the process, a way to make the pointed toe pump look work for me. Now that they’re back on-trend again, I’ve rounded up some of my favorites for my fellow narrow-footed Snobs – and for those of you who just love a great heel!
