Kitten Heels


The kitten heel is a short, slender heel, usually from 3.5 to 4.75 centimetres nearly two inches high with a slight curve, setting the heel in from of the edge of the shoe. They were introduced in the late 1950s as formal fashion attire for young teenage girls but became popular as Audrey Hepburn worn them. Then by the early 1960s they became a style worn for women of all ages. Kitten heels made a comeback in the 1980’s and since then, have been a popular shoe amongst all women’s because of its style and comfort. In the Valentino’s Autumn/Winter 2012 collection the stylish kitten heels are shown in the most feminine and neutral way matching the collection colour palette.
