For most women, a great pair of vegan heels can instantly boost confidence. For me, it’s a no brainer: if I have to choose between flat shoes that may be comfy, but make me feel squat and mousy, or heels that elongate my legs, accentuate my calves and make me feel taller, I’ll take the heels every time!
‘But wait!’ I hear you say. ‘Heels are just so…uncomfortable.” And I get it – they certainly can be. But a well-crafted heeled shoe will make strutting simple. It should have a padded toe (since that’s where your weight is), a sturdy metal-reinforced heel, and of course, a durable upper.
Personally, I find that a bit of a platform and a chunky heel are the two key qualities that make it easier to walk in heels – stilettos are tough for even the most experienced heel-lover, and they tend to get stuck in cobblestones, sidewalk cracks and sewer grates!
Willing to give some taller cruelty-free shoes a try? Here, I’ve rounded up 10 of the best vegan high heels to lift your spirits – and your style.
1. Stella McCartney – Mesh Mules
2. HEXA – Looker
Night on the town? Big date? These vegan heels, which are made ethically in Thailand will be your new dancing shoes. They have a small built-in platform at the front that adds extra comfort and height – and just look at those sexy straps!
Take on a tango or just look like you are about to – adjust the front straps to make sure your feet are firmly held in place. Dance the night away while others are limping home or massaging their feet!
Their anti-slip embossed rubber forepart also prevents the tip of the outsole from wearing down by creating a buffer between you and the ground. The sleek gold foil outsole is made from recycled rubber; I just love the gold soles!
The style: These T-straps are called the Looker – because people will definitely be checking you out when you wear them!
