Kitten Heels—Our Favorite Early ’00s Shoes—Are Back for Fall

Over the years, fashion's had an on-again off-again relationship with kitten heels.

They were definitely a big deal to the Olsen Twins circa Passport to Paris.

And Ashlee Simpson was into them too—right before she went from pop-star to punk and became a brunette around 2003.

Then they kind of disappeared into some dark, fashion faux pas space until Ashley Olsen attempted to bring them back again in 2013.

But now? They're more au courant than ever. Notice Leandra Medine wore them at Fashion Week, for instance.

Cool, huh? Maybe you find their resurrection surprising, or perhaps you'd never even question it when you consider how much more comfortable they are than five-inch stilettos. Bottom line is, though: they're back, and everyone from Valentino and Prada, to J.Crew and L.K. Bennett made them for fall.
