Whenever Demna Gvesalia says that something’s back, it’s back — the kitten heel is no exception. I mean if the man could make us think twice about Juicy Couture sweatpants from the early 2000’s, it isn’t surprising that the itty bitty heels of his Vetements collaboration with Manolo Blahnik and his Balenciaga “broken heel” booties have caught on. The retro style has been making its rounds despite a not-so-warm welcome back from fashion enthusiasts. While some folks would rather have this silhouette stay in the past, we firmly support its return. The shape is chic and simple — perfect for heart racing hues, piles of embellishment, and sassy slings. From Dior to The Row, Prada to Gucci, and Topshop to Zara, there are a myriad of styles and price points to choose from.
