Flats are beloved for a reason. Comfortable and easy, they're an obvious choice for a lot of occasions. But if you ask me, they'll never quite compare to a chic pair of stilettos or heeled boots when you want to take an outfit up a notch. And apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks so. More and more, celebrities are trading in their low-key flats for high-key heels, specifically ones with a certain '90s-inspired silhouette that look sharp every time (pun intended). 

Spotted on supermodels like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid, as well as actresses from Anne Hathaway to Margot Robbie are spikey, pointed-toe heels of all types. Perfected by luxury labels like Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, The Attico, and Prada and made accessible by brands like Mango, Zara, and H&M, these high-voltage pumps are making flats look less and less appealing by the day. So, whether you're dressing for a night out or looking to elevate a simple jeans-and-tee look, the 27 pairs ahead are just what you need.

Shop pointed-toe heels:

The perfect slingbacks don't exis…

I can't get over how expensive these look. 

I just got these and feel so chic when I wear them. 

I've sent these to everyone I know. Literally everyone.

When Coperni makes something, it becomes an instant trend. 

Everyone should own a pair of these.

The sleekest, shiniest heels a girl could ask for.

Add a touch of elegance to any outfit. 

I can't believe I'm saying this, but sock boots are back in vogue. 

In case you were wondering, these come in black and brown too. 

The S/S 23 runways are bringing snakeskin back in a major way. 

And while I'm shopping around, I need these too.
