These are the dominant heel types from the SS15 New York, London, Milan and Paris catwalks.
Whether they held the models up as they strutted, or challenged them not to wobble, they’re all here.
Straight, flared, or with a concave heel breast at Marc by Marc Jacobs; the block heel is here to stay until well into 2015.
Skinny heels with single soles are back. Most are set far back, which is bad news for supporting the wearer. They do provide a pleasing sexy elegance, so just beware of cobbles and uneven surfaces.
The creativity displayed by such a variety of heel types is impressive. Whether they stand out through shape or embellishment, these are some of the most talked-about shoes of SS15.
4. Low heel
If white is the new black: low heels are the new flats. In spring/summer 2015, flat footwear will still be on-trend, but shoes with a slight lift will begin to take over.
Low, mid or high: wedges are back on-trend. Largely slim-line rather than chunky: they are covered in leather, metallic veneer, or stacked.
No longer just for strippers’ footwear: perspex heels have made it on to the catwalks in unexpected forms.
