Spring 2012 Shopping: Reasonable Heels, Low Wedges, and Flat Sandals!

Ramona writes, “I love all the shoe styles for spring (color blocking and florals) but I hate all these super high heels! Are there any options that have smaller heels? They don’t have to be flats, but heels that aren’t taller than 4 inches please. I’m already kind of tall and I don’t feel comfortable wearing sky high heels.”

Sabee had a similar issue, saying, “I broke the arch of my foot a few years ago and I have not
been able to walk around in high heels. I know platforms have been the in thing for the last few years, but I can’t even walk in them. I just want some nice stylish heels that I can wear out without breaking my ankles or the arch of my feet. I love all the bright colored suede heels this seasons, but I have not been able to find a wedge or anything that isn’t just straight FLAT! I love my flats, but I would love to kick it up a notch or two. I wouldn’t mind wearing low wedges or even kitten heels. I’m just so tired of flats and sandals. HELP ME!”

Fashion Bomb to the rescue!
We compiled a bevy of kitten and reasonably low yet cute heels for those who are height averse.
Low, Mid, and Kitten Heels:

We uncovered both pumps and sandals, with heels measuring 4 inches or less:

Low Wedges:

No withering heights with these! We found quite a few stylish picks, like Sam Edelman’s Sophie Low Wedge Sandals:

A few Flats (just for fun):

If you’re tall and statuesque, there’s nothing wrong with a chic flat sandal. We enumerated some strappy beauts in bright, on trend hues:

Happy Shopping!
