Why are people cross about the return of the kitten heel?

Kitten heels are back. Vogue has said so, and Twitter has howled in laughter. Maybe it’s the memory of all those prissy ladies-who-lunch heels. Although they never really left, especially not in branches of LK Bennett. Or maybe Theresa May is responsible for this distaste. She debuted her leopard-print kitten back in 2002 when the heel shape was still in its prime. But still, no one wants to wear the same shoes as the PM, and I say that as someone who shared with Margaret Thatcher a predilection for the Salvatore Ferragamo Vara.

But despite the protestations kitten heels are not only back, they are back in the places that count.
