The Ultimate Must-Have Shoe Accessory

This post was kindly sponsored by Straplets. All opinions are my own. A huge shoutout to Straplets for sponsoring this post to help keep Leah Little Travel & Fashion running!

Do you love shoes? Do you enjoy having shoe options? Do you already own a pair of pumps? Do you suffer from OPS (Over-Packing Syndrome) while traveling? Do you like to save money? Do you have limited closet space?

If you answered yes to any of these questions (and be honest, you answered yes to all of them), then I have the ultimate shoe accessory that is your new must-have…Straplets!

Straplets are like belts for your shoes. Just loop them around the heels of a pair of pumps you already own, and create a whole new look! I recently tried 2 of Straplets styles; the Mary Jane and the T-Straplet.

Your Straplets arrive in cute little pouches, complete with instruction cards, in case you have less than ideal spacial awareness, like me.

I took my most basic pair of black pumps to experiment with these strap styles. These are the exact pumps that I feature in this post. They are comfortable and available for $39.99 at DSW.

Here are a few more ideas of pumps that I think would be super fun to try with Straplets. I can’t wait to try them with bright colors, nude heels, or prints like snakeskin or floral.

I tried the Mary Janes first, and they were so cute! Its amazing how the addition of one little strap can completely transform a shoe.

Next, I tried the T-Straplet. I was really excited about these because they are dupes of these Valentino heels I have coveted for years.

The Valentino pair retails for $995, but the T-Straplet only costs $32.00. I mean, its a no-brainer. You could easily afford 24 more pairs of shoes for the remaining $936.

I felt like such a rocker chick in these studded black leather heels. I can’t wait to wear them out.

Straplets also come in a clear Mary Jane style and a Criss-Cross style. They will also soon be releasing the T-Straplet in black patent leather and nude.

Which style is your favorite?
