Each season brings about a new it trend, it bag or it shoe. This season it’s all about the curved heel, and the brand responsible for this new trend is Walter Steiger. The company started in 1932 as an exclusive shoe atelier by Steiger Sr., while Steiger Jr. launched the company to fame starting with his first boutique in Paris in 1974, and has since opened boutiques in Milan, London and New York, and collaborated with design houses like Sonia Rykiel, Chloé, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Azzedine Alaïa and Karl Lagerfeld.
Now the world is taking notice of this innovative shoe brand and the ‘It’ shoe of the moment: the Walter Steiger Curved Heel Pump. As seen on celebrities like Ashanti, Kendall Jenner and Kelly Rowland, this shoe is a clever take on the classic platform pump, as Steiger strives for minimal design. We love that the heel appears to be ready to buckle once you step into the shoes, but the brand prides itself on using only the highest-quality materials, so they’re actually quite sturdy, comfortable and chic!
Would you rock a pair of these curved heel pumps?
