If you knew, there are a multitude of different heels, you do not have to go from one extreme to the other. To make things easier for you, the editor has listed these little wonders that lengthen the silhouette.

The square heel

The square heel (or straight) is the great trend of the moment. These shoes are probably the most comfortable and practical. The heel may be low or high. It can be found on boots as well as on sandals or ballerinas. It is more than stable, with it, no risk of falling. He has nothing to envy to his neighbor the heel needle because it also assures us a determined and feminine step. In recent years, it has been seen in plexiglas, metal, lace. The square is definitely stylish.

 The flat heel

Yes, you read correctly. The flat heel exists! It is located on certain ballerinas and sandals to prevent the sole rubbing against the ground. Although very discreet, it is nevertheless effective, since it avoids us to slip on the ground and eventually to “display” us in front of all the people present.

The mule

The mule makes its comeback and we love it! Comfortable, we put on our foot as in a slipper. Our heel is in the open, sometimes held by a strap for more support. The mules are now available in leather for a chic look or even suede for a more casual style.

The Kitten Heel

The kitten what? Indeed, his name is not common and yet, you cross him more often than you think. It measures between 3.5 cm and 5 cm and is therefore in the category of small heels. Excellent alternative to high heels, it is advisable especially to those who begin to tame the heels or those that are too large to crack for a 12 cm. Very popular in the 50s, it is still topical. Most ? It allows you to stay feminine without having to hurt your feet at the end of the day.

The needle heel

Very thin, as sharp as a peak of ice, you are presented the heel needle. Considered by some to be the pinnacle of femininity, it is not suitable for everyone. It is renowned for refining the silhouette and guaranteeing a mannequin gait. However, its very pronounced camber can cause back and foot pain (hum … it loses its glamor all of a sudden). From 10 cm, we speak of stilettos.

The compensated Heel

Ah compensated, as we love them! We find models more or less high according to our mood. First considered as the shoes of the summer, they are found more dressed. The dressmakers have made it a real fashion accessory, a must-have item in our dressing room. Covered with sequins, fringes, endowed with a sequined heel, cork or rope … We swear (almost) only by them. Their most? Their heel adapts to all occasions and gives us a serene stability. They come in sneakers, sneakers and sandals for spring.

The platforms

Or shoes with trays. Blessed be they! When one wants to have the approach of Gisele Bundchen without risking to tread an ankle, one opts for the platforms. At the front of the shoe (under the sole of the foot), is a plateau several centimeters thick. Its role is to “soften” the height of the heel. Platform = stability + femininity.

The arty heel

A wind of originality blows on your shoes. We find pretty white pearls, precious stones, flamingos … We crack for their workmanship and their colors, which boost any look

The conical heel

These heels are flared up and shortened at the bottom. Nevertheless, they remain stable and comfortable. They are sometimes called trotters because when they measure only a few centimeters, we can wear them all day without seeing our bruised feet. We appreciate their unconventional shape that brings a touch of originality on shoes too basic.
