Comfortable, sensible, functional… these aren’t usually the sentiments used to describe the latest trends in high heels. Heels are more often noted as precarious, sometimes awkward, and gorgeous yet dangerous (like that bad boy you shouldn’t have dated in your 20’s but he was so beautiful you couldn’t help yourself). As any heel-wearing woman knows, the beauty of a heel is in the aesthetic, not the logic. We don’t parade around in Louboutins for mobility; we do it for the sake of looking, and subsequently feeling, gorgeous and badass.
Lately, however, fashionistas and just plain stylish women alike have been hitting the streets in a slightly different variation of our beloved stiletto. These past few seasons I have noticed a shorter, stubbier heel supporting ladies’ stems. Pictured above, this style can of course be a simple kitten heel like the blue pair on the left that more sensible women have been wearing for decades, or the more trend-prevalent look: the Barbie-looking shoe with the fun purple heel in the middle.
The new middle heel height gives the lift that women crave and even offers a hint of sexiness with a tiny heel at a cost more of us can manage. From the high-end runways to the hallways of the shopping mall, there is a middle heel out there for you. Let me help you find it.
