During the reign of Louis XIV, known as the Sun King imposed the first heeled shoes throughout its court, both men and women liked to wear this footwear so desired and innovative at that time, making heels high fashion in the most influential monarchies and families of France.

However, it was not until the 50s that the legendary French designer and artist Roger Vivier made kitten heels fashionable. This famous designer, inspired by the fine arts and the creation of scenographies, began to make the first custom shoes for great artists and dancers of the time such as Joséphine Baker.

Remember the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's starring the glamorous Audrey Hepburn? From that moment kitten heels became popular among younger girls and the invasion of shoes of this type had a boom until the 70s when platforms became the protagonists of the dance floors.

Why are they called kitten heels? When worn by younger girls, they are called that way because they were considered training heels, the height of kitten heels is 3.5 cm and 4.75 cm, which is considered a fairly comfortable and versatile footwear that can be adapted to any style and personality.
