I have a tendency to develop obsessions about things and one of my latest is the ‘cat’ heel boot,  as pioneered by Saint Laurent.  It has come in to replace the dicker boot by Isabel Marant, a version of  which now is worn by every second mum on the school run .

I cannot tell you how many times I have looked up the Saint Laurent version but the price point is just too high, so I am currently stalking them on all the Pre loved sites ! We all have our vices .

I love that the ‘cat ‘is not as thin as the kitten heel,therefore not as easy to get yourself stuck in the grooves of the foot path and it is much more comfortable.

I adore  the fact I can wear it day to evening, so it is just a better investment.  I have already covered in my head, all the outfits they could go with and as soon as I track them down, I will share them with you.

The best all round collection can be found at My theresa  and I love the Miu Miu version and the amazing Saint Laurent is leading the way.

There are some great more reasonably  options but more such as these by Reiss, Jigsaw, DVF and Lk Bennet which are currently on sale, though the heel is more kitten than cat!
