Today Show: The Kitten Heel Is Back
Women tired of coming home every day in need of a foot massage, all for the sake of fashion, can breathe a sigh of relief. Luckily for the them, low is hot this season. The hottest shoes for spring are now the kitten heel. Valentino, Givenchy, and Pierre Hardy have all designed a kitten heel for this spring. At the Saks Fifth Avenue shoe department, one to two inch heels are abundant. Different patterns and patterns, studs and no studs, and some exotic details – there really is every flavor of this new trend that one can imagine.
Today Show: Return of The Low Heel
It seems that there is finally a trend out there that women can appreciate. A passerby that the crew interviewed had nothing but good things to say about this new fashion trend: “[I’m] all about those low high heels,” she said. “They make me feel less like a giant,” said another woman. Fashion trends are not always designed with utility and comfort in mind, but fashion experts are quickly appreciating how functional and simultaneously stylish this new trend is proving to be.
Today Show: Chassie Post & Running In Heels
Chassie Post, the lifestyle editor for gilt.com, came on the show to echo the praises that other stylists have been singing. “These low to mid heels are sensible yet still sassy, and I’m a total convert.”
For men that were afraid of women that can run in heels, prepare to face an entirely new threat: the mid/low heel. Chassie spent a minute or so talking about how she actually jogged to the Today Show this morning wearing some mid heels – and it didn’t look like she was kidding.
