Q: Dear Shoe Lady, I love the dramatic look of high heels, but in reality prefer extended comfort. Any suggestions?
A: Hi Stephanie,
A happy compromise would be kitten heels. I have been seeing more of them around lately as one of the Spring 2011 trends. They will give you the longer wear while fulfilling your heel criteria. The attention of the higher heel can be redirected to the drama of a stunning pattern or finish of the shoe to make up for a lower heel, and save your feet!
This orange Waikiki slide by Forgotten Soles boasts a punchy splash of color, and can easily be worn with pants or dresses.
The textured purple Kitten By All Black by Barefoot Tess is shiny dress pump. This versatile style would look good in a work environment or for a night out.
Marianne in black by Naturalizer combines the simplicity of a career pump with a revamped high-gloss shine.
