Kitten Heels FAQs

Q. Why do people wear kitten heels?

A. Kitten heels have lower heel heights than traditional stiletto heels, making them more stable, but still with a high heel look. It's an elegant shoe that makes the wearer look professional and feminine without compromising comfort, making it the perfect shoe to complete an evening date look or your office outfit.

Q. Are kitten heels easy to walk in?

A. Yes. Kitten heels are considered one of the best choices for the woman on the go due to their style, comfort, and walking stability. Compared to traditional stilettos, they are much easier to walk in because of their heel height; kitten heels are generally lower than 5cm? around 3-4cm high.

Q. Are kitten heels comfortable?

A. Yes. Kitten heels are a fantastic alternative to stilettos when you're looking for a stylish heeled shoe that prioritises comfort. Walking in lower heels causes less stress on the body, particularly on the balls of your feet, knees, and lower back, which is why you can walk comfortably in kitten heels for longer, compared with high heels.

Q. Why are they called kitten heels?

A. This classic heel gained widespread popularity in the late 1950s as a training heel for "kittens"— that is, young ladies and teenage girls who were not prepared for high heel stilettos, which were mainly worn by grown women. Kitten heels were used by girls to get accustomed to the uneasy walk of stilettos.
