I prefer a three inch heel and they have been almost impossible to find. Our choices were limited – either it was the ridiculous stilts or the super flat ballet pumps.
But that is about to change — because this season the hottest heel height is a demure one inch, perhaps two if you push it.
Dubbed the ‘petite pump’, the new ‘It shoe’ featured in the collections of Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Chloe and Chanel, has been the heel of choice for fashionistas at London Fashion Week.
‘We don’t want to wear instruments of torture any more,’ says fashion expert Brix Smith-Start. ‘These heels are the perfect height to make you stand a little taller, they’re smart and structured, but you can wear them all day.’
Could it be, that we are seeing the death of the sky-high stiletto? One can only hope.
