Your feet will be singing high praises because low heeled shoes are back in action, ladies. Pull out the classic kitten heels and pumps and say goodbye (for now) to those high heel stilettos that pinch your toes and give you ugly bunions.

I’ve always had a thing for patent leather Mary Jane pumps like this pair (available at Jones Bootmaker, £75.00)

What do you think about the low heels trend for spring? Will you be rockin' a pair or two?

  1. I super like the lilac and low heels by ccroquer. It looks so classy and I like the color combos too.

  2. I like the black shoes with red ribbons on it.

  3. I am not used to wearing low heels ever so I really need this advice. I am loving the trend this spring because of the colors. The shoes are also amazing and hopefully I can pull it off because they are all beautiful.
