It’s official. Comfortable wedge and platform heels are out this summer and stiletto heels are back on trend. What a shame I think to myself as I just got used to walking in 4 inch platforms, allowing me to tower over my friends on a night out clubbing. But no, where fashion tells us to go, that is where we have to walk, albeit decidedly doddery. And apparently, the thinner the heel and the higher it is, the better which really rules me out of this particular craze as I find it nigh on impossible to balance let alone walk in the things. But, if you are one of those graceful creatures to whom wearing stilettoes is a natural art, read on as we have some of the most beautiful shoes that will ever adorn your pretty toes.
Asos.com, who announced the new trend, not surprisingly have a great range of stiletto shoes and the emphasis is one of bright, spring and summery colours, packed with detail. Think flowers and gorgeous summer prints with needle shaped heels and you won’t go far wrong. To show you what I mean, check out these beauties; for £395, Pollini for Louise Gray Heeled Sandals feature a high slim stiletto heel, a sling-back, a strap over the foot with buckle fastening, a panel over the foot with a peep toe and zig zag contrasting trim and a striking chunky bubble sole.
