About five centimetres or lower is considered a mid heel. The shape of the heel itself could be an architectural kitten heel or a block heel or somewhere in between. It's the height, or lack of height, that matters and has women buying mid heels year-round. It's a shoe you can actually dash across the road in and stand in for the duration of a client presentation. They are comfortable without looking in the least bit orthopaedic and chic without being challenging; prim yet quirky. Switch to slingbacks in summer and wear the same style all year round. A mid heel has always been the go-to shoes of women who do lots of walk-abouts and deliver lengthy speeches: Queen Elizabeth, Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton, Kate Moss. (Okay, Kate Moss is better known for her walks than her talks.) A mid heel means no longer having to squeeze a pair of ballet pumps into your handbag. Heels always benefit your overall appearance, no matter whether they're mid or maxi. A mid also makes you taller (quite a bit) and improves your posture without throwing you off balance or requiring a practice round. Kitten heels are especially feminine and fashionable. Anna Wintour almost always wears a pair in the front row. Kitten heels have a youthful elegance. Slingbacks with kitten heels often grace the red carpet when they are expected to stand around and talk to the press at length, all while looking their best. So, meet Spree's range of mid-heeled shoes that offer a wonderful balance between comfort and style, whether a closed court shoe or a slingback, guaranteed to become your go-to shoes seven days of the week.
