Who knew that in 2018 people would be carelessly wearing all sorts of kitten heels? Balenciaga’s fashion director Demna Gvasalia is the man behind the world’s current kitten heel obsession. The designer┬ádecided to bring back something we were considering a fashion miss by adding modern twists like bows, texts, sling back and silk. The 4cm grandma go-to shoe is something we are all yearning to own. Here are our top four styles and where to shop them:

1. Old meets new
