We’re undoubtedly seeing a resurgence of the early 2000s. This means the revival of the kitten heel, or as Balenciaga likes to call it, the sandal (with a 4 cm heel). A quick Google Search whilst we blast Britney confirms that yes, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and 2000s icon Paris Hilton championed the tiny-heeled sandal all through the noughts. (Usually paired with a dress over jeans but we’ll talk about that later). So as we come up to twenty years since the millennium, we are making life easier with a 4cm heel. Ours are Balenciaga, though. No shade. The sandal, with Demna Gvaslia’s classic let-’em-know Balenciaga embossed logo has a metal heel, semi-shiny palladium hardware and is 100% calfskin. And 100% what we are wearing for the rest of the year in the lead up to 2020. Werk.
