Highs and Lows

1 year ago by

Towering heights or a more sensible level?

I know where my allegiance lays, but if you had to choose, would you say your go-to heel is of the low kitten variety or the sky-high, to-the-max style?

  • Comfort is a big part of my life, so I choose a lower heel!

    Sky high!!! Once you find a pair that works for your feet comfort-wise, I buy them in every possible colour!

  • I don’t discriminate shoes by height, and I love wearing both types as long as they are comfortable. Still, when it comes to high heels, I love a chunky heel. ^^

  • I love high heels but for everyday I prefer a lower one or a flat

  • Kitten heel for everyday comfort although I believe it takes a certain type of leg to look great! (Long and lean that is!!) High heels would be the ideal but I walk too much to be able to handle them…

  • Always a flat or kitten heels girl

    Never Kitten. Always high.

  • Talons très hauts ou talons plats, pas d’alternative possible pour moi ! Sauf avec les boots !

  • I think you only look good when you feel good. So if you are wearing uncomfortable heels all day, and be in pain, you are gonna smile less, move less, be less sexy. It’s not worth the effort. Wear flats : you can dance, you can run, you can move and feel amazing :)

  • Du moment que les chaussures ne me détruisent pas les pieds, je suis partante pour des talons !

  • I would always go for a kitten heel! Better to look good and feel good rather then endure high-heel induced pain and end up wobbling your way home. :)

  • Pour ma part, toujours vertigineux (qui rime avec libidineux)
    Emmodez-moi

  • The older I get, the more I realize that sexiness is not in the shoe but in the wearer’s gait. A lovely confident stride is much more appealing in a ballerina flat than miniature, choppy steps in towering stilettos. Despite this, I am still a heel connoisseur and I do not discriminate on height.
    The key for me is taking my shoes to a trusted shoe repair directly after purchase to have them gently stretched and soled with rubber. You’ll be amazed what a difference this can make to an otherwise not-so-comfy heel.
