If you aren’t naturally blessed with long legs and are shopping for summer, don’t stress. There are no limits to what you can do. UseYou can wear sandals but we have some tips and tricks to help you lengthen your legs.
Shoes that lack straps around the ankles are always a solid detail to look out for, but if you do want that extra support, make sure you gravitate toward thinner straps that don’t cut off the leg. Taller heels will always make legs look longer, but if you’re not comfortable with height, there are plenty of ways to nail that supermodel aesthetic. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up a slew of sandals below that will surely be of assistance — read on for more!
These Chunky Platforms
These shoes have chunkier elements, such as this pair. They instantly slim down your legs and make them appear longer. We also adore this plush mule style — it’s beyond trendy.

These sandals for the pointed toe
These sandals have a lower heel but the pointed toe is a great way of elongating your silhouette. To enhance this effect, you can criss-cross the legs to emphasize the thinner straps around the ankles.
Zappos offers the ALOHAS Mirage sandals starting at $180
These Super Strappy Heels
Nude is a great color to choose if your legs want to look longer. These heels are both elegant and simple, making them great for daytime or evening wear.

These Sleek Leather Mules
This shoe is another A+ example of an elongating sandal that doesn’t have too high of a heel. The thicker strap above the toe is curved at the right place and thick enough for support. The leg is extended — without the discomfort!
Zappos offers the Naturalizer Stany mules starting at $79
These Clear Wedges
Even if the shoe is transparent, a clear shoe can make your legs appear longer due to the translucent element. The straps don’t cut off the legs, and these are an easy way to incorporate something different into your wardrobe.
Zappos is offering the Steve Madden Wedge Sandal starting at $71
These Espadrille Plates
An espadrille is a classic summertime shoe, and we’re completely obsessed with this platform version! The nude hue has leg-lengthening abilities and the slide style without ankle straps adds to that look.

These Statement Platforms
If you want to get into the mega platform trend, we can’t think of a better shoe to try! The five-inch height of the heel along will elongate your legs, but the thick platform actually brings the heel height down to three inches — making them more manageable.
