Ah, silly season. There’s something special in the air, isn’t there? It’s the time of year when early morning briefings can turn to liquid lunch in an instant. Things can go from zero to one-hundred really quickly (and painfully) if you’re wearing the most uncomfortable 6-incher’s while trying to do the office coffee-run. Modern and busy women on the move need shoes that are stylish and made for walking. We already know about the legitimate health hazards associated with wearing high shoes, but we can’t deny how confident they help us feel. At the risk of a broken ankle – or worse, drop down in heel height this party season, and enjoy yourself for longer.
The mid-heel – not quite a kitten heel but high enough to still feel the additional height – is the perfect mid-way shoe to choose as party season ramps up. At the end of the day, shoes probably won’t stop you from sending late-night texts or eating badly-stuffed kebabs at 2AM, but what they will do is help you transition from desk to dancefloor effortlessly. From patent-leather classic like the Gucci mid-heel pump to a glitzier embellished shoe in bright orange from Parfois, here are 10 stunning pairs of mid-heels to help you go from desk to dancefloor in comfort this year.
