Last time I listed all my favorite flat shoes from the spring 2013 collections. Today, it’s the mid heel shoes. I have complained in the past that there are not enough mid heel shoes in the shops and it’s definitely true that the difference between the amount of mid heels and high heels is significant. Style.com listed 303 mid heel shoes while there were close to 1700 high heels listed.
Still, I was pleasantly surprised by the fantastic range of mid heel shoes designers have created and I found it tough to make only a small selection, so I will spoil you with quite a few fabulous examples.
It remains to be seen of course how many affordable shoes we will see in the more mainstream shops, but I am quietly optimistic.
I also increasingly believe in investing more in one pair of fabulous high quality shoes. As I discussed in my article on how to dress if you have no time, a statement accessory or shoe can really make a difference to an otherwise basic outfit. If you don’t go for a shoe that is too trendy (like the black and white ballerinas I wore there) you can wear them for years. Good shoes are definitely worth investing your fashion budget into.
I have been a big fan of larger bulky heels for years, no matter what the trends are. You probably know yourself quite well by now. I find them easier to wear and more comfortable. Stick to the type of shoe, you know you love and buy some great ones. I’m glad they are featured quite a lot in this year’s collections.
Although many of the shoes featured above are not yet available in stores online, here are some of my favorite shoes from these same designers that are!
Are you going to wear a lot of mid heel shoes this summer? Which is your favorite?
