Best black kitten heels to buy now

This year, a fresh shoe trend is emerging that offers the elegance of classic high heels without any of the discomfort. Beloved by the celebrity style set and popping up all over my social media feeds, I’m, of course, talking about the black kitten heel trend.

Kitten heels may feel very new to us in 2024, but the hero silhouette has made big news before. Once popular among fashion insiders in the ’90s, by the late 2000s the elegant trend had fallen out of favor and tall heels became the focus. Now, after years of being dormant, the elegant and comfortable shoe trend is back on the agenda and looking better than ever.

With a dark black hue and a sleek micro heel, black kitten heels are never boring. With an elegant and sophisticated energy, it’s hard to match his naturally trendy style with flowing dresses, but he looks just as chic with baggy jeans.

The elegant shoe trend seen on the high street and in designer retailers is quickly becoming one of this season’s most prolific trends.
