As you may know, the fashion world has decreed these to be back in a big way this season (or in a small, kitten-shaped way), and the proof of this can be found over at Topshop.com, where these red, kitten heel slingbacks are £55.
Personally, kitten heels are one of my least-favourite styles: I’m basically an all-or-nothing kinda girl, and if I’m not wearing skyscrapers, I’d probably rather wear flats than go for the ever-so-slightly pointless looking “kitten”. That’s just me, however: there’s no doubt that these heels are more comfortable than stilettos, and will offer better arch-support than flats, but would you wear them? This particular pair have a very retro look about them (you could call them dated if you wanted to be less tactful, but I suspect this is a deliberate move on Topshop’s part), and if I was going to wear them, I’d probably try them with black capri pants or an Audrey Hepburn style black dress.
What do you think of them: heroes or villains of the shoe world?
