Season after season, sky-high stilettos have reigned supreme. But this fall the footwear market is finally offering a significant competitor: the low chunky heel.
Often topping out around two inches, its incarnations are many. But whether it’s a pony-skin leopard-print loafer from Tabitha Simmons or a spikes-sprouting mary jane by Michael Kors or Céline’s lemon-hued pump with the new trapezoidal heel, it offers the perfect height for maneuvering through busy urban terrains or miles of suburban malls.
The trend has been growing for a while, but it’s truly come into its own this season. Isn’t it nice to know that practicality is again chic?
