Kitten Heels, Boots, Pumps and Sandals for Women

A kitten heel is a short, slender heel, usually from 3.5 centimeters (1.5 inches) to 4.75 centimeters (1.75 inches) high, with a slight curve setting the heel in from the back edge of the shoe. They are an alternative for women like Caitlyn Jenner who find high heels uncomfortable. Further, kitten heels are also worn by teenage girls, who may be considered too young for high heels.

Trends come and go, and as much as we want to hold on to our favorite ones, most of them have a fleeting life cycle — here this season, gone the next. There are, however, shoe trends that become staples in our closets. Kitten-heeled shoes, for example, used to be just another resurfaced trend from the past. But because this style finds its way back to the runways time after time, we think this trend deserves to be called a staple — an indispensable shoe style that will forever be in our fashion books.

Not everyone is a fan of this trend though. Some might say it is hard to wear, that is, a bit awkward on the foot and not as sexy as, say, platforms or stilettos. Despite being labeled “anti-sexy,” kitten heels definitely rank top when it comes to providing ladylike sophistication. They may not be as height-boosting as platforms, but they are undoubtedly more comfortable to wear.

This season, low heels are on the rise on major fashion runways. These kitten-heeled shoes we spotted feature spring-appropriate colors, infused with other hot trends like laser cutouts, studs, color blocking, and more.
