Introduced as a “training shoe” for young women, the kitten heel grew up quickly. Women embraced the short, slender heeled shoes as both fashionable and practical. Paired with capris, pants, skirts, or dresses, the kitten heel adds a spring to your step without sacrificing style. Audrey Hepburn made the kitten heel an iconic style thanks to her “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” wardrobe. Other fashion leaders like Jackie O, Michelle Obama, and the Kardashians have kept the style alive and modern. This year kitten heels are hot, and the shoes have a decidedly modern feel to them.
