Kendall Jenner Wore the Classic Heel Style Everyone Says Is Becoming Cool Again

I don't know about you, but I will gladly wear any shoe trend Kendall Jenner is endorsing. There's no denying that Jenner is ridiculously chic and has excellent taste in shoes, so I will never hesitate to copy her footwear. But she's not the first to signal that the heel trend she just wore in Paris is back, and that heel trend is the most classic of them all: pumps.

The return of pumps was first noticed during S/S 23 fashion week, when they came across the runways of heavy hitters like Bottega Veneta and Prada. And then, Dior, Givenchy, Gucci, Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, and many more joined in and included pumps in their F/W 23 collections. That brings us back to Jenner, who chose a pair of black The Row kitten heel pumps to pair with a long black The Row dress. The look was minimalism at its finest, and it reminded me of the versatility of a pair of simple pumps.
