You can’t spend everyday in platform pumps. Just ask Sarah Jessica Parker – her doctor told her that all of those years strutting around the Sex and the City set in heels actually created a bone in her foot. Truly disturbing. So let’s try some shorter heels on for size. To make up for the length-slimming effect of super high heels, I’ve chosen all pointed toe pumps like these cap-toed Prada slingbacks (at Saks Fifth Avenue for $650). The shorter, the more you can get away with – in this case, that’s metallic shine! Here are the best silver short stacks:
3.1 Phillip Lim Dove Metallic Leather Pumps: Phillip Lim went full metallic, even down to the sole of the shoe, which makes the black elastic strap all the more of a contrast. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $485.
Miu Miu Crackled Metallic Leather Single Sole Pump: Crackled leather normally has a worn-in look, yet in metallic silver, the style seems almost futuristic. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $590.
Stuart Weitzman Poco Kitten-Heel Glitter Pump: The kitten heel height suggests that these are Cinderella shoes for the sensible Snob, but all of the glitter says Mariah Carey diva. At Neiman Marcus for $199 (from $298).
