As pretty as high heels are, they're not exactly the most comfortable steppers in the world. Yes, we're very aware that we ooh and ahh over the latest pair of sky-high Louboutins and Atwoods, but c'mon, we all know they're strictly for curb-to-cab occasions. So, when we need to find some middle ground between too-casual ballet flats and four-inch pumps, we reach for the trusty kitten heel. Don't worry, the 10 we've culled are nothing like your grandmother's.
From a pair of strappy and studded Valentino steppers to a white retro Zara slingback, trust that these beauties work with every outfit and every budget. Time to kick up those (kitten) heels, ahead.
