Kitten heels are back!

This is GREAT news for those of us shoe lovers who have been walking around in higher and higher stilettos and platforms for the past few years! Yes, it’s true…kitten heels are back for the fall season! So no more sore feet from the super high heels. From a medical perspective, if you’re going to wear heels, kitten heels are a great choice for the feet. The heel height is usually within the 2.5″ or less height recommendation from the APMA (American Podiatric Medical Association). The lower heel causes less force to be placed on the front of the foot, causing less pain and inflammation from prolonged use of way-too-high heels. And we can all relate to that pain after we’ve been in our 5″ (or highter) stilettos, right?

So let’s take a look at some of the hot and still sexy kitten heels that will be out this fall:

1. Leopard Print: 

2. Zebra Print:

3. Sandals:

4. Classy:

5. Boots, even thigh-high boots:

6. Booties:

7. Red pumps:

So whatever style of heel you love, you can find it this season in a kitten heel…try it, you and your feet just may like it!

  1. Oh noooo!
    I just gave my friends a speech last month about how I hated any heels under 3.5 inches! I don’t think I’ll ever love the kitten heel. 😦

      You will when you get older! I wore stilettos for years but now that I’m 56, my poor feet just can’t take the discomfort. 😦

  2. I love my high heels too, and they are definitely not out this fall…but the kitten heels are making a comeback! We can wear either or both this season, and I think that’s great…especially for all of those women who can’t wear the super high stilettos or platforms. 🙂
