Just my luck, I can't ever wear this style of shoe. Most peculiar, my feet hurt wearing this style more than any shoe. I just can't wear it. Even 4 inch heals don't hurt as much, oh well. I still lust them:)
I love these shoes. I can see Anna Wintour wearing them and of course I would own a pair if I wasn't spending money on my business and saving for a house. But I digress. It is refreshing to see a classic heel come back and at a reasonable height.
I like them also–something edgy yet traditional and soft about them. However, they will be old hat and overkilled very quickly if everyone starts wearing them, like in these photos. Sort of the shame of appealing beautiful and popular things.
I'm not liking them. They look uncomfortable, and for me there's always been something markedly trashy about kitten heels. What particularly bothers me is that the ridiculously sharp point at the toe and low heel really elongate women's feet. This is just a really bizarre, impractical trend to me. I can already pinpoint ten areas where these would chafe and ache, and I feel that the ankle straps really cut off the leg and make it appear shorter. In my opinions these are not pretty, not flattering, and not practical.
They are very comfortable, and in my opinion very classy. They are the best of two worlds. Regular stiletto high heels make all women walk in tiny, mincing steps. Men know that if a woman wears really high heels, that she is trying very hard to get their attention in a desperate way. This is why men always make fun of women wearing high heels. They give a sort of slightly over the hill New Yorker who thinks she is hot, but really is sad( kind of like Sex in the City bunch). Having worn kitten heels, I can say they are extremely comfortable, and don’t chafe anywhere. they make you feel very feminine, but not like you can’t walk or run normally. They make legs look very long, and very nice. Everything high heels are supposed to do, but don’t. I don’t suppose you have worn them, or you would know they are comfortable, but I can easily understand why you would not like the looks of them. They are probably too different from what you see everyday.
I don't love them, but I am SO GLAD to see heels of a reasonable height. Hate, hate, hate the skyscraper look. We've had far too much of that nonsense the past few years – stilettos make women's feet look deformed. Glad to see a return to common sense.
Egads! The shoes themselves are pretty enough, nothing too special. But am I the only person who thinks they looks horrible on the feet? the openness combined with the pointy toe makes every single one of these women look like her feet are boats and the shoes are somehow falling off the toe and only restrained by the straps, which are horribly stumpifying themselves. No! No! No! Say no to unflattering shoes.
They look like pseudo-rock shoes sold in cheap chinese plastic shoes boutiques in Paris,20 seasons ago…It was in this time very chic to wear them with long boot cut nylon black pants and later with black skinny jeans… How fantastic it is to see them again !!!
To the people who comment that this heel height makes women's feet look large – no, it doesn't. It makes them look normal. You've just grown used to seeing the unnatural position created by higher heels.
