Wow! I have reservations on ankle straps because it makes visible distinction between the leg and foot making the wearer look shorter. I wasn't blessed with long legs so I am very particular when it comes to silhouettes. One day I will try to wear one like this 'Particulier' platform pump with ankle strap by Fendi. Although I have seen this design before, Fendi made it their own by covering the suede upper with mesh. This is available at Saks for $785.
