Kitten heels tend to get an almost unanimous thumbs-down from dedicated shoe people, but are kitten wedges somehow more…acceptable? I find them less proportionally odd because you don’t get the skinny, squatty heel effect that comes with a traditional kitten, but please consider the Miu Miu Patent Leather Wedge Sandals and Prada Point-Toe Wedge Pumps above and let’s discuss the issue in more detail.
I’m not sure, but I think I’m ready to embrace the kitten wedge. These certainly aren’t the sexiest shoes on the market, or the trendiest, but we all need a few good, functional pairs in our closets for days that require more foot time than usual. Or if you have a job that requires both professional attire and lots of walking, shoes like these might be a good way to look polished and still keep your sanity.
Sanity-saving shoes may not be the most drool-worthy of the season’s footwear options, but they certainly have a place in a lot of closets. Although I’ll be the first to admit that discussing a design’s more utilitarian strongpoints does dampen the shoe magic just a bit.
