When it comes to footwear, you can trust New York women to not pick out the chicest trends, but the ones that are most comfortable. With daily activities that might include pounding the sidewalks, hustling up the subway stairs, and maybe even dancing (who knows in NYC), it's crucial that footwear can survive a day on the go. So, it's no surprise that the latest trend taking over the city is the mini heel – both kitten and otherwise.
Not only do these ultra-feminine shoes offer the right bit of fanciness to even the simplest ensemble, they add a little bit of lift without the pain of taller heels. When it comes to win-wins, we'd say this ranks pretty high. And no matter if you're headed to the office, date night, or even weekend brunch, we promise you'll feel perfectly on trend.
