It’s one of these trends that men don’t get and women either love or hate. Kitten heels! Boots, sandals, pumps: As long as it has a low heel, you’re good to go!

Kitten heels. The name originates from their original function. These type of shoes were worn by the teenagers of the 50s, the kittens, to prepare the youngsters for the real deal – high heels. A prep for adulthood. Funny – today it’s exactly the other way around.

Kitten heels are replacing high heels! Whether it’s Gigi Hadid or Aimee Song – all of the cool girls of today fancy the vintage shoe. It does make sense. First, kitten heels are extremely comfortable. Second: they’re chic. Why choose the nine centimeter stiletto, if the mini version does just as well?

I have to admit, sometimes the retro shoe comes off a bit conservative. A bit too much madame. A bit matronly. But that’s easily fixed with a few edgy pieces. How to style a modern kitten heels outfit – here’s my suggestion.

„The higher, the better?

That’s out!“

Kitten Heels Outfit:

Shaking up the Vintage-Vibes

As a passionate shoe fan, I’m always pretty open when it comes to new footwear trends. Also, I just like the idea. The higher, the better? That’s out! If you look at the recent shoe history, the recent kitten heels trend is no surprise. Flat or with a mini heel: Designers are keeping it low. Nowadays, women are allowed to unashamedly choose comfort. And still be chic!

My favorite wear to wear kitten heels is to pair them up with leather or business wear. In this case: both! Chino pants and biker jacket freshen up the vintage vibes of the boots. A modern way to wear a classic shoe!
