As much as I love the idea of wearing heels with jeans for any old regular day, I'm just not a heels kind of gal. I see it more as a modern kind of foot torture, akin to the Chinese tradition of foot binding (I mean have you see the feet of women who wear painful heels all day every day?). It's something I'll tolerate on occasions when I know walking will be at a minimum. But I recently saw these pictures of Elin (a famous blogger) and her friend (in black with the sunglasses). And even though Elin had on a better-looking pair of heels her friend's pair looked way more comfortable. That got me thinking about kitten heels. There's quite a few women who write off kitten heels as either ugly or useless (as in you might as well wear a pair of flats). But I think for a woman who wants to look a little bit more polished, without all the pain, a kitten heel is a great solution. I looked for the pair the friend is wearing in these pictures and got something similar from Zappos. I absolutely love them and are quite possibly the most comfortable pair of "heels" I own. They're from a company called Trotters, and though I really hate the name (for some reason when I hear trotters, I think of pigs), I love that their shoes come in several widths for every size (perfect for my wide feet).
