Sasha – long story short.  I hit my foot, my toe nails have turned black and I refuse to wear sandals right now.  I’ve been looking for a sling back boot sort of shoe.  Can you help? Love, deformed.  K

What a buzzkill for you, but don’t fret K because I’ve sleuthed out a slew of sling-back styles that will disguise those mangled feet of yours.

First up, check out these super dope Jeffrey Campbells. I’m loving all the attention to detail – everything from the metal tipped toe to the slight cut-out in the chunked heel.  

If you’re looking for something that you can dial up or down then I’ve got you covered with a slick pair by Derek Lam.  Oh and they come in a cool croc embossed green too.

How about some laced up booties?  If the answer is yes click here and here.

Now I know you want to stay covered up, but my honest style advice would be to paint those puppies up and go with a peep-toe. Come on, at least take a look at what I’ve found.

There’s nothing more feminine and pretty than lace and this pair by Nicholas Kirkwood is straight up gorgeous.  I tried them on not too long ago and fell in love.

Keeping with the pretty theme check out another pair of stunning Kirkwoods here.

If you want to keep it more low key,  go with a basic neutral shade and take a look at what I’m talking about here, and here, and here and here.

Finally if you’re a black don’t crack kind of chick then get clicking here, and here, and here, and here and one more here.
