1. Kitten Heels or shoes with small stiletto heels
In the 1950s they were a must. Then, like all trends, they went out of fashion. Needless to say, of course, vintage fashion is now a must have and, when a shoe is so iconic, it cannot fail to appear on the shelves of all stores! Ideal for those who do not feel stable with a more important heel, they give a touch of femininity without making you feel on stilts.

The heel is high but rather easy to put on, which makes them perfect for a full day in the office (as long as there is not too much walking!). The most chosen colors for this décolleté are black, beige, nude pink and gold.

4. High-heeled shoes with ankle strap
With thin or thick laces, with bijoux or simple, shoes with ankle strap are hyper feminine and highlight the ankle and the instep. Ideal for a feminine touch to a casual outfit. Not recommended for those with a not very thin ankle because the horizontal line of the strap may not enhance the rest of the leg. Neutral colors for the more classic but also touches of fantasy for those who love to experiment.

5. Platform pumps
This version of pumps allows you to dare with heels a few centimeters higher without losing (too much) stability. The wedge under the sole of the foot, in fact, makes walking more stable. To be worn only when the walking paths are limited or having the foresight to keep a pair of ballet flats in your bag. Prevention is better than cure, after all. The plateau has really depopulated, and therefore not only the pumps have been reinterpreted and transformed into the most comfortable shoes ever, but also many other models of high shoes (or not).See also: Platform shoes: the most beautiful models to choose from!
