The Kitten Heels to Wear this Summer

By Kristen Shirley

This story originally appeared in the May/June 2018 issue of Elite Traveler.

Paul Andrew

Paul Andrew keeps both fashion and comfort in mind, offering a plethora of downright lovely low-heeled and flat shoes. The 2.6in-high Carpanthian slingback’s defining flourish is the metallic silver accent on its strap.

Jimmy Choo

At 3.3in high, the sophisticated Erin slingback just barely qualifies as a kitten heel. The adjustable strap lets you wear them bare-legged in summer and with tights come fall.

Christian Louboutin

Compared with the vertiginous stilettos Louboutin is known for, the 2.8in-high Frou Mid pump seems like the brand’s idea of a starter shoe. But we love the sexy front ruffle and patent-leather details.
