‘Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.’ – Marilyn Monroe
Right from Louis XIV in 1638 to Christian Louboutin in 1992, high heeled shoes and stilettos have made their way from the designer’s books to our hearts one step at a time.
A classic piece of footwear, be it on the runaway, out with friends, or at the workplace, stilettos are a friendly pair to move with. When Roger Vivier designed the shoe for Dior in 1954, he didn’t just create a new genre of heels, he created a sensation, a statement that enabled women to emphasize their body line and their sexuality. In a time when poodle skirts, saddle shoes, and pony tails were in style, leather and denim became popular as the rebellious counterpart. Stilettos added a sexier edge to the ruggedness.
Also known as the “needle” shoes, thanks to the heel style, the stiletto remained in fashion till the 1990’s only to come back with a bang in the new millennium among working women, when they started dressing for power. The heels brought them to the height of men and yet felt feminine.
Stiletto heels can dazzle if the shoe length to heel height has the correct proportion. Shoe designers now take this into account when developing the perfect pair of stilettos. As a result, in more recent years, shoe designers have been able to carry the stiletto to new heights. Designers such as Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and Salvatore Ferragamo create sky high shoes with beautifully artistic curves and design.
Meet the new line of stilettos that are comfortable (yes, comfortable) and fashionable. Beverlyheels.com offers you a wide range of stiletto sandals, stiletto boots, and metal stilettos that will suit your every whim and fancy.
