We can’t be the only ones getting a little tired of donning our sky-high stilettos. It isn’t exactly fun to be teetering around pretending like you aren’t one wrong step away from an embarrassing fall; while the pain radiating from your feet is so mind numbing that you almost convince yourself that walking around barefoot is socially acceptable. Allow me to reintroduce the lovely kitten heels!
Ah, yes. These are but a few reasons that we, along with our feet, are so happy to announce that the kitten heel is back!
If you aren’t familiar with kitten heels, just think of it as the training bra of stilettos. Their signature is a short, slender heel of usually less than two inches that is set in on the back of a feminine shaped shoe.
The cyclical nature of fashion has caused the kitten heel to go in and out of style over the years. Currently back in, we can’t think of a more perfect occasion to wear kitten heels than to the office. Its heel is low enough to be comfortable and ladylike, yet high enough to give you that little boost of confidence
