I’ve never really been a “heels” girl. Sure, I like wearing them out on special occasions, but as someone with five knee surgeries and zero coordination, they’re not really an every day kind of shoe for me. I want them to be–because, like every girl, I feel somehow prettier and more pulled together in a pair. I’m constantly on the hunt for shoes that give me a bit of height but don’t leave me popping Advil at the end of the day. Wedges are usually my go-to, but this summer I’m turning my attention to the mini stacked heel.
I first found a pair of these in DSW and fell in love instantly–the heel was the perfect height for someone like me, and oddly enough, they felt even more comfortable than flat sandals. I’ve since picked up pairs from Sam Edelman, J. Crew and DSW. My favorite styles? I love the idea of just a basic leather pair, like the Borgia from Jeffrey Campbell, a pair with a touch of metallic like the Trina from Sam Edelman and this pair from Victoria’s Secret (so affordable, too!). Next I might splurge on something fun–I’m really on the hunt for a red pair, or maybe a touch of animal print like this Loeffler Randal duo. Have you found any good mini stacked heels out there this summer? Do share!
