Footwear is big here on Zalando, as you know, and we are particularly excited about our latest collection of women’s heels. It’s not for nothing that ‘well-heeled’ means smart and prosperous, and you will see why as soon as you begin to browse our women’s heels selection.
As you have come to expect, we have thought carefully about what makes you keep coming back to us. You want to see meticulously curated women’s heels ranging from the classics to the unexpected with more than a nod to the latest trends. You might know exactly what you are looking for or you may be looking for inspiration and new ideas but either way you will find the perfect pair of women’s heels here on Zalando.
We love our heels for so many reasons and so did our ancestors, going all the way back to the ancient Egyptians who wore heeled shoes as a status symbol on high days and holidays. These days heels can add a touch of smart, business-like élan to workwear. They can be a gutsy fashion statement in their own right or they can create an air of romantic fragility when worn with dreamy summer dresses.
Fashion-forward with emerging trends in women’s heels
You can trust our instinct for knowing what works for our customers when it comes to the plethora of out-there styles, including edgy heels such as the eye-catching lace-up heels in sugared-almond pastel hues, or more under-stated elegance in shades of leg-lengthening nudes. Both ballerina ties and gladiator laces work surprisingly well with the heeled sandals in our collection, drawing the eye up from the elegant shoe to the shapely ankles and calves above. On a practical level, the lace-up feature relieves the pressure on the ball of the foot and ensures extra comfort, cleverly increasing the wearability factor. Who said we have to suffer for fashion?
Adding boots to our heels collection was a no-brainer – heels are not just for summer and you will find a tempting array of heeled boots to choose from including classic ankle boots with spiked, Cuban, or block heels. Or how about buying into the recent trend towards reviving a quintessential 1970’s look with high-heeled over-the-knee zipped boots in matt suede or shiny leather?
Block heels, kitten heels, spiky heels, they are all represented in our collection, but don’t forget to check out the selection of wedge heels, comfortable enough to wear all day long and yet adding all the benefits of a heel to your look and posture. Some styles echo the sunny espadrilles that we associate with the French riviera, other wedges are presented as smart and sophisticated court shoes, perfect for work or formal occasions.
A wide choice of materials including sustainable and vegan options
One of the joys of buying new shoes is the wealth of materials to choose from. Many customers look for real leather or suede but don’t dismiss the new man-made materials that are beginning to find favour with some of our leading designers.
Look out for the green ‘sustainability’ flash on the website. Sometimes it indicates that the leather and suede has been sourced from certified tanneries, or it may be that the shoe includes recycled materials. Either way it is a sign of the maker’s concern for the environmental impact of their manufacturing processes.
Whether you filter our heels collection by style, price, designer, colour or materials we are super confident you will find what you are looking for and get some news ideas as well. Happy browsing!
