I’m taking a little liberty with the term “kitten heels” because I really don’t like “true” kitten heels very much (just a very slight heel, an inch or less – like the Givenchy’s below); they seem kind of in-decisive. BUT, the comfort level draws me in, and some styles are edgy/interesting enough to NOT look “old” or out of date – again, like the Givenchy’s. Like everyone else, I first feel in love with the new kitten heel via the Acne blue suede Poe pump (number 3), but I’m beginning to think I could see myself wearing a simple black or “nude” pair with boyfriend or skinny jeans. Miss Sophie does it well…and Zara seems like a great option for those of us just wanting to try them out.

Val, I’m combining this with your “find me” request since you were SO SPECIFIC about what you needed. I hope the red & leopard pumps I found you meet your requirements. I realize they’re not exactly kitten heel, but they’re still a good low-heel. And under $100!! And size 11! 🙂
What do you think about the “new” kitten heel trend? Will you wear a very low kitten heel? or stick to a mid-heel? Do you wear pumps?
