Kitten Heels

This heel is a typical stiletto, but the size of the heel varies from about 1.5-2 inches. For those who aren’t fans of a sky-high design, kitten heels provide just the perfect addition to your height.

Wedge Heels

Wedges can be either in the form of sandals, or heels. You can differentiate them from other shoes as they have no separation from the heel to the sole. Numerous women prefer these as they provide uttermost comfort.


Black strappy pump heeled shoes

A stunning pair of pumps are two-three inches long with a low cut and are closed around the front. Many women find a little discomfort wearing them, but they look stunning over a party outfit or an A-line pencil skirt. Pumps heels are my current favourite heeled shoes.


Black & Golden Stilleto

 The most beautiful, and crazy type of heels and can go up to almost eight inches! Wearing stilettos requires practice and stability. Wear them on exquisite designer outfits and stand tall!

Peep toes

 Peep toes are extremely snazzy and one of the most popular type of heeled shoe. They come in an array of size and colours, with either long or short heels, bows or flowers; the only difference is, that there is space, where your toe finger nail is seen! So be sure to have a perfectly immaculate pedicure to go with it.

Block heels are the style of the 70’s and is the complete opposite of stilettos! They are rather chunky and is far more comfortable. Usually looks best in monochrome with a stylish leather jacket and denims to go with it.
