Whoever invented the kitten heel deserves a lifetime of standing ovations. We love the way heels make us feel… leggy and ladylike. But those five inch pumps are killing us! Kitten heels give us a chance to switch things up and still achieve that fabulous, feminine look we love, without having to hobble our way home. Check out 10 of our favorites, and get ready to say “meow.”
