Each confident step Graham took was a chic, and most importantly, a supported one thanks to the strappy sandal heels she’d worn on her romp at the event. Intersecting on the tops of her feet and meeting around her ankles, the thin straps on each shoe secured the style in place, making for a worry-free footwear experience for the on-the-go model.

A sleek staple during warmer months, many stiletto sandals feature a simple strap across the toes and a fastener strap around the ankle, creating a seamless, barely-there construction. The heel of a stiletto sandal is often 4 inches or above, adding a bit of height, making for a tall, flattering silhouette.
