I hunted down the best black heeled, strappy sandals & platforms. Here’s what I found!
Black sandals, especially black heeled strappy sandals are the sexy footwear style that’s never out of fashion. I’m not really an impulse shopper, especially when it comes to investing in designer heels. I like to look around, think on it, do price comparisons and figure out what’ll get the most wear, look the best on and not kill me walking in them. So it’s not really a surprise that it took me from last Winter to now to find the perfect pair, which as an added bonus were also on sale. While I went for a more classic style with a few unique touches, I also found some more on trend styles that are in right now from more casual to black dress sandals and included all types of heels including trending black platform sandals. Here’s what I found.

27 best black strappy sandals
You’d think shopping for black heeled sandals would be pretty simple. Set a budget and search but there are so many different styles it get’s a bit overwhelming. Stilettos, chunky heels or platforms? Classic simple styles, crystal embellished or gold studded? Ankle strap, strappy sandal or slingback? Which brand is in and what’s out?
I went through thousands of styles from department stores to high street to designer brands to try to cover whatever you’re looking for. Whether that’s designer black dress sandals or a luxe for less pair under $50. These are the styles that stood out to me for their either classic or on trend looks and popularity.
Best Black Strappy Sandals Under $50
If you’re looking for a pair under $50, I have the Steve Madden Bradshaw sandals in nude pictured and listed below that were $99.95. However they’re now on sale in all colors including black for under $50 with code SUMMER.
They’re great value for money and while they’re not exactly comfortable per say (what heels are?), I can happily trot around on an evening out on them. I ordered my regular size in them and they fit great. They’re also not too pointy so that you’re toes don’t fall off the ends, never a cute look or comfortable!
Best designer black strappy heels
The black dress sandals I have from this edit are the pair from Balmain (pictured in this post). They run true to size and what sold me on them, besides the brand and being on sale was the gold stiletto heel and hardware.
I can’t find my exact pair anymore but this is the new season Balmain black strappy heels which look exactly the same except the gold B on the ankle has been replaced with a gold bar clasp which says Balmain. They’re probably a lot easier to fasten to be fair.
