The Grandma Shoe Has Been Reinvented


Say meow

We know you're probably going to be scared of what we are about to say BUT the grandma kitten heel is here, and ready to be passed down onto your feet. With a modern twist, the block two-inch kitten-heeled flat has been officially reimagined, in the best way. A take on runway shoes—let's call it the "glove" flat—it's finally made it to the mass market for all of us to oddly enjoy. A far cry from your grandmother's Sunday best church shoes, these new takes on the ladylike styles come in great colors and fabrics. Try a pair in suede or a bright leather (maybe pink because you want to channel your inner Barbie) or in an unexpected metallic colorway. Although they might look a bit weird off the foot, they are super comfortable, will give you just the right amount of height, and are very modern and chic. I mean, you can't go wrong; take a chance on these grandma-approved babies in the gallery, below.
