What are Kitten Heels?
A kitten heel is a shoe with a heel that is low, usually between 2.5 and 5 inches high. The shoe was worn by men around 1600, but the real kitten heel was introduced in the 1950s. The shoe was created as an exercise for young girls to be able to walk in heels. Exactly where the name comes from is unclear; some claim that "kitten" refers to the young women who wore these shoes. It is also said that the heel height is similar to the claws of a cat, and the name comes from this.
After a while, the kitten whole disappeared again. Until the 1990s, when the shoes were picked up by such style icons as Princess Diana. By the beginning of the new century, they seemed to have disappeared again. Only since last year have the low heels fully returned to their modern look.
Why Kitten Heels?
I always think heels look beautiful. Not necessarily because of the shoe itself, but because of the woman wearing heels. She then immediately assumes a confident posture. You assume an upright posture, the leg muscles put on a nice shape, and the feminine curves come out just right. The only problem is ... I really can't walk on them. I've been practicing with a pair of heels from my mother's closet since I was young, but not much further than walking up and down the landing once. I always thought, with an appropriate pair, I'm sure I can do it later. Nothing could be further from the truth...
That's why I'm raving about the modern revival of the kitten heel. After all, I can do it on this low heel! This shoe offers the perfect balance of height and comfort, making it a great choice for women who want to look stylish without walking in high heels. Kitten heels are not only comfortable, but also versatile. You can wear them to work, to a party or even to a wedding. They are suitable for any occasion and can be worn with both casual and formal outfits. One of the biggest advantages of kitten heels is their ability to elongate the legs. The heel height of kitten heels is enough to improve your posture and make your legs appear longer, without experiencing the discomfort of a higher heel.
How to Wear Kitten Heels.
In the morning, sometimes you just too often reach for that easy pair of sneakers that go under everything. Convenient, comfortable and without thinking. The kitten heel is a perfect replacement, stylish and all-day wearable!
One of the most popular trends right now are square-toed kitten heels. These shoes have a sleek and modern look, and are available in different colors and materials.
