What Are Your Thoughts on These Low Heel “Petite” Designer Pumps?

Could it be true? Is this for real?

While sky high stilettos are still the ultimate favorite, it seems what’s gaining popularity at the moment is the “baby pump”; also dubbed by fashionistas as the “petite” pump. It pretty much looks like your typical flat, except for the teeny tiny bit of lift – around 1 to 2 inches tops.

These pumps come with blockish heels much like what was so in vogue in the 60s; think Chanel and Ferragamao back in the day.

Well, you like? Or is this trend making you scream with disappointment?

Yes, admittedly, they do look old-fashioned and perhaps even un-sexy. But we would like to think these shoes are actually quite feminine, and would work as perfect stand-ins for days when you don’t want to wear stilettos but find flats to be too casual (i.e. check out Kate Bosworth in petite pumps and a dress below). They’re pretty classy and offer a lot of understated elegance:
