First of all – why is there even a debate?
Fashion isn’t even a real thing. It’s like paper money – totally made up. Someone says, “[Random clothing item] is hot, hot, hot this season!”, and scads of people take it as Gospel truth.
So here’s my opinion on kitten heels, for whoever cares to read it:
Although very cute, they should be worn only by those who don’t mind risking a sprained, twisted or broken ankle. I own a pair myself. I tried wearing them once – ONCE. The heels immediately slipped out from under me on a stone floor, almost throwing me into a piece of furniture and the people sitting on it.
Now those shoes are going to Goodwill to be purchased by the next adventurous individual who thinks they’re worth the risk. While you’re there, Adventure Girl (or Boy), better check the back of the store, where they keep all the crutches, braces and Velcro gimpy boots. You’ll be needing at least one of those.
