Sometimes women want the look of a heel without the extra height many traditional pumps offer. Kitten heel shoes do just that. The shorter heel featuring a slight curve provides just a touch of extra height while offering the look and feel of a women's pump. Open-toed versions add a touch of elegance while a traditional pump version adds a classic element to a business suit or dress. From basic black pumps with a kitten heel to an embellished shoe in red leather, there are a number of styles and colors to choose from.
Calvin Klein takes the classic stylings of a women's pump and beautifully updates it with the addition of a kitten heel. Pair this shorter women's heel with business pants for a professional look or with a favorite black dress for a night on the town. The gentle heel on kitten heel shoes provides a bit of lift and lengthens the leg without an ultra-high heel. Choose a classic black pump or a brighter color for added versatility.
For a fun and in-the-moment look, an embellished shoe by John and David Shoes is the answer. The shorter kitten heel shines when done in brilliant red and a bow embellishment at the rise provides just a touch of funky fun. Pair with black dress slacks to show a little color or match a bold red shoe with an equally bold red dress to make a big statement.
In the summer, turn to kitten heel shoes featuring an open toe by Adrienne Vittadini. The open toe shoe look is perfect for summer evenings. They provide the height of a pump, the look of a sandal and the classic styling of a dress shoe. Pair with a brightly colored summer dress instead of sandals for a summer dinner or Sunday brunch.
If you want the look and feel of a classic pump without worrying about too tall heels, turn to a variety of kitten heel shoes, available at Macy's.
