Elba typically chooses dainty footwear when attending major events and occasions. Last month, Elba stepped out to support her husband, Idris Elba, at the Odeon Luxe West End in Christian Louboutin’s white So Kate pumps. The heels featured a sleek leather upper and a pointed toe alongside a 5-inch stiletto heel. In February, she attended the 2024 BAFTA Film Awards in a pair of strappy black, heeled sandals that featured a thin ankle strap and three delicate straps on the front. The entrepreneur was spotted in Louboutin again at the Vogue World: London 2023 catwalk event in silky red Louboutin pumps that boasted a pointed-toe silhouette with stiletto heels of 3.3 inches in height.

About the Shoes

Elba was seen at the Corinthia London celebration in a pair of white strappy sandals. Made with patent leather, the shoes featured a small strap around the toe, a slim white strap in the upper and a white ankle strap complete with a white buckle. The silhouette was completed by a slim stiletto heel that measured between 2 and 3 inches.

Strappy sandals have been a preferred choice for many celebrities in recent weeks including Saweetie, Karrueche and Selena Gomez.
