What’s your favorite type of high heels ?

  1. I would like to add another very popular and sexy type of high heels for women, the d’Orsay.
    This is a type of pump usually with a closed heel and toe. It is cut down to the sole at the sides leaving the arch of the foot visible. Recently open toed styles with a closed heel and cutout sides are also considered d’Orsays. Leaving the shank of the shoe bare creates a sexy silhouette.

    1. Hey i cud visualize the heels mentioned by u …my general preference are flat pumps as they r convenient for office wear…i would love a flat d’Orsay aswell… Thanks for the info.

  2. I had never actually heard of the term kitten heels before, but I like it! I have a lot of heels that would fit that description. Probably my favorite style!
