Sleek and steadfast, the kitten heel is reimagined with maximum impact thanks to luxe textures, sculptural details and magical embellishments.
The quintessential heel for your day-to-day wardrobe, kitten heel will lift your stride only few comfortable inches. It's hard to argue they don't stimulate men's imagination as much as killer heels but taking into consideration bunions, corns, grazes and first of all broken ankles – does anyone really care? They will, however, let you keep up with your busy life and if paired with a classic, sharp shape pointed toe they will be both practical and trendy. After all, it was audrey hepburn who started the kitten heel trend!
Most fashionistas were left in shock when they noticed granny-inspired kitten heels instead of their favourite “break the ankle” heels on fall 2010 winter 2011 runways (prada – slingbacks worn with thick socks, marni – kitten heel boots, giambattista valli slingbacks worn with opaque tights). It's pretty sure most of them will boycott kitten heels and will try to convince you to ditch them. I'm not personally a fan of kitten heels' old fashioned style but it's not a secret they make shoes walkable enough to wear to work and afternoon shopping expeditions with friends.
