When it comes to footwear, you can trust New York women to pick out not only the chicest trends but also the ones that are most comfortable. (Note: London women are much the same.) With daily activities that might include pounding the footpaths, hustling up the subway stairs, and maybe even dancing (who knows in NYC), women who live in the city need footwear that can survive a day on the go. So it's no surprise that the latest trend taking over the city is the mini heel—both kitten and otherwise.
Not only do these ultra-feminine shoes offer the right bit of fanciness to even the simplest ensemble, but they also add a little bit of lift without the pain of taller heels. When it comes to win-wins, we'd say this style ranks pretty high. And no matter if you're headed to the office, on a date night, or even going to weekend brunch, we promise you'll feel perfectly on trend. Curious to see how NYC girls are wearing mini heels?
