Theeeeeeeeey’re baaaaaaa-aaaaack! That’s right! Those tiny little skinny heels are back, and they are everywhere for the fall 2018 season. Meow!
If you have started to shop for fall 2018 shoes, you may have noticed a trend in both heel height and shape. You are not hallucinating, the kitten heel has returned for the fall season, leaving fashionistas slighter shorter this season. Where is my free height? Short girl over here asking for some inches! (See me waving my hand high and fast! No? Must be my kitten heels keeping me short, I need some height!)
Despite the fact that kitten heels only provide one inch of height at most, they are actually comfortable as long as you don’t mind balancing on a stiletto width heel. Kitten heels don’t put very much pressure on the balls of your foot, and they have just enough height to provide a bit of arch support. They are a great alternative to flats this season; especially if you are like me, and try to avoid flats at all costs.
I purchased a pair of white kitten heel booties and they are a great option when I don’t want to wear my high heel booties. I also love the 1950s vintage vibe kitten heels provide. We haven’t rocked a lot of 1950s trends lately, so it’s refreshing to take something from that decade and make it new again.
The kitten heel is being found on all of the fall 2018 shoe trends right now. You can find them on boots, booties, mules, pumps, and slides. Put a bow on the mules or add an animal print to the booties, and you have an IT item of the season. Love that!

I love kitten heels on booties, but when it comes to pumps, I prefer a higher heel. What is your take on kitten heels? Will you rock this fall 2018 shoe trend or will you skip it? What is your favorite shoe style with a kitten heel this season?
