Designer or Deal ankle strap kitten heels

Designer or Deal: Designer kitten heels / deal kitten heals (built in arch support!) /

There are so many good shoe trends this spring/summer season! One of these trends is the return of the kitten heel. Before you knock it, this is a much more comfortable heel height for walking. Your feet, hips and lower back will appreciate the lower heel height. So, there’s that!

One of the big trends right now is a pointed toe, kitten heel and ankle strap; all together. Several designers have a version of this shoe style, but I prefer the chic and simple version pictured above. If you love this look too, and want to lower your foot pain, this might be a great shoe for you!

If you are designer all the way, here is the designer version for you! If you prefer to keep your money in the bank, and you enjoy some arch support, this version is calling your name. That being said, this designer version is more of a mid-priced shoe and won’t completely break the bank. So, it’s up to you!

Here are a few lower heel height shoes for the spring/summer season to keep your heel height low:

What do you think of this understated shoe trend?

This spring season is a bit warmer than last year, enabling me to store my boots and reach for lighter footwear. Loafers are a classic style which is still popular for the spring season. This season, I picked up a new pair of loafers which have orthotic-level arch support inside. I don’t need to move my doctor prescribed orthotics into these shoes, they have all the support I need. Love that!

In addition to loafers, ballet flats-also a classic shoe style, are currently the “IT” flat of the season. (They were last year too, so if you have a pair, you are in good shape!). These ballet flats also have built-in orthotics, so I can wear them all day! They are amazing! If you have planter fasciitis too, you might love these shoes!

The loafers and ballet flats are both by Vionic, but they seem to be sized differently. The ballet flats run true to size, but the loafers are slightly large. I needed to size down by a half size.

Onto casual footwear! These rose and white sneakers are so pretty! I love them on casual days. I also love these casual grey boat shoes which are lightweight and ideal on warm days.

Well, since it seems to be raining less this year, and temperatures seem slightly warmer than last year, I am keeping my Mary Janes in rotation for the winter season, and my rose sneakers too!

Of course, faux fur boots are always appropriate during the winter months, and these black boots are constantly being worn. I love them!

As you can tell, my winter shoe capsule wardrobe is small, and mainly meant for daily wear. These Mary Janes are comfortable and can easily be worn with pants, skirts, and dresses which makes them versatile. I can store my high heels for warmer months.

My black boots work perfectly with jeans, trousers, and longer skirts or dresses. They are comfy way to elevate an outfit. Love that!
