Mid heel shoe trends for fall 2012

mid heel shoe trends fall 2012

I have already looked a some of the coming trends for fall 2012 but have not yet discussed the shoe trends. Let’s do that today and start with mid heel shoes.

Even though we may be a bit more limited in our fashion choices after 40, there are not really any limitations (except for really high heels perhaps) when it comes to shoes. In fact it is a perfect way to add an edge to your outfit. You can add the trendiest shoe and still look completely ‘age appropriate’. I had a look at some of the latest shoes for fall 2012 and chose some of the most spectacular mid heel shoes, which can add that extra spark to your outfit!

Now you will notice that some of these mid heel shoes are actually quite high in height. But believe me the shoes in the high heels category are even higher. And it comes as no surprise that most shoes shown on the runways fall in this category. Since I believe that these really high heels are insane and certainly not very practical for any woman above 40, I will not feature them on the site.  I wrote about this earlier in my article on why we need more mid heel shoes! These heights are high enough and give you all the height and elegance you will need!

Luckily there were also many very elegant flat shoe choices which I will feature next week!

What do you think? Something you like? Will you be wearing trendy mid heel shoes this coming season?

this is a nice review! I’m happy to hear that mid=heels are going to be on trend soon. It’s really the only thing I can wear. My favorite shoes in the review are the blue patent chunky heeled loafer/oxford by Miu Miu. Unfortunately for me though, I can only wear comfort shoes because of my feet problems. I do love looking though!


Thanks Joni. Very high heels still seem to rule, but let’s just hope enough shoe manufacturers will make enough mid heel shoes for the coming season. I for one am not going to buy the crazy high heels.


I prefer wearing flats and mid-heel shoes most of the time, I only make exceptions when I’m dressing up for special occasions. Happy to see the trendy selection, and my favourites are the Rag & Bone boots!


Good choice Nanne. That should be a very practical shoe to have for your climate!

I’m into chunky heels right now….its a better alternative to stilettos!



I’m the same. Only wear chunky heels really… But wouldn’t mind owning those booties with a slighter heel from Alexander Wang..


I am sorry I like high heels very much, but shoes are made for walking and that is what they don’t do, so I’ll wait for the flat ones.


Yes, very practical Marianne. I let myself get seduced with these less practical shoes every now and then…

Love those kitten heels! I’m not buying any more mega platforms. It’s gona be all about a smaller, more wearable heel for me going forward. Love your samples.


yes, me too!


Lovely item. Thank you. Like Nanne I am drawn to the black and white boots by Rag & Bone. (No surprise.) Also the pink/purple Balenciaga boots are a beautiful statement. But that heel is very tricky. I had loafers by Miu Miu with a heel like that. They got stuck everywhere and I ended up at the cobbler every time I wore them. As I can walk on stilletos it was caused by lack of practise.
Both my choices are outstanding shoes. Your Alexander Wang booties choice is better. Still very lovely and unusual, but you can use them more often. Only in fall or spring of course as I live in cold Holland.


I think the rag & bone booties will be very versatile. You can wear black and white with so many things. I also really like the design of the Bally booties for colder weather. For me I also love the Alejandro Ingelmo nude booties!
