We never thought we’d see the day: after years of crippling sky-high heels, kitten heels have worked their way back onto the runways and into the zeitgeist. Finally, a trend your tired feet can get behind. These sleek, perfect-for-work kitten heels are infinitely more comfortable than 4-inch heels, but better than flats when it comes to looking dressed up. Think you’re not ready for the trend? Wait ’til you see the cool versions we found:

 1. These J. Crew Knotted macramé heels ($225) are great for weddings, work and beyond. Pair them with cropped jeans or floral skirts for playful, put-together look.

2. These Nine West Hadrian heel ($78.95) are perfect for city girls – pair them with black dresses or pants, and then  walk 20 blocks to work without getting blisters. 

3. You will go wild for these snake print Stuart Weitzman Poco heels ($298) – they’re a great work-to-happy-hour shoe.

 4. Every gal needs a pair of non-crippling black heels in her shoe closet; these Boutique 9 Campisi heels ($91) are perfect.


5. These Banana Republic Othello peep-toe pumps ($82.99, down from $98) are a great tri-season shoe; pair them with jeans or wool skirts in the fall, or wrap dresses in the spring.
