Does a fierce mid-heel exist?

14 Dec

I didn’t think much about “fierce-ness” in fashion until a friend recently mentioned it – but the word “fierce” does somehow describe highly fashion-forward, striking items well. So thinking about this word made me realise why I am never fully satisfied with my look when wearing mid heels. I love mid heels for comfort – I get a bit of height – a bit of sophistication and little to none of the agony I get with high heels. But they never make me look “fierce”.

Does a fierce mid-heel exist? I investigate…

Valentino Studded Calf Hair Kitten-Heels

A quick stop on Net-A-Porter where I could search for mid-heels gave me some options – but really – not many! These Valentino studded calf-hair kitten-heels could look fierce teamed with the right pieces – tight black leather pants…

Stella McCartney Faux Patent Leather Slingbacks

These Stella McCartney emeral slingbacks caught my eye. I’m not sure I would be willing to part with nearly £400 for “faux leather”…you mean plastic Stella? But she has the golden touch – and has turned a simple style into something elegant and fashion forward – liking the asymmetry across the toes. Yep – these made my fierce list.
And finally – I searched and searched…

Givenchy Wool-Felt and Leather Sandals

Givenchy’s Wool-Felt and Leather Sandals made it onto my fierce mid-heels list because I am intruiguied by the wool-felt and leather mix – and I like the mix of thick and thin straps – I think they are fashion forward – if a little safe.

So, in short, I think it is possible to get a hot look in mid-heels, but it sure isn’t for the faint hearted – it’s going to take some investment of time and money!!

    Investment in money, time and walking practice me thinks. Not only are they fierce looking but also scary, especially the studded shoes….
