Picture your perfect pair of 5-inch heels and how easily it is to walk around all day in them, running from errand to errand. Yeah, we can't imagine that either. We’re taking it down an inch, or four, with the latest craze: low, mid, and kitten heels. Don’t get it twisted, we love our high-heeled leg lengtheners, but strutting from place to place at a snail’s pace isn’t practical for a girl on the go. Which is why we’re tipping our hats—and lowering our heels—to high fashion’s renewed sense of comfort-meets-style.

When we want to dress up or make an outfit look a little nicer, a pair of sky-high heels is usually the first place we turn.

Leave your pumps at home and slip on a pair of sophisticated pointy-toe flats, pretty leopard loafers, or chic ballet flats—we've got 20 perfect pairs for you to choose from!
