Let’s party, because here are five fabulous shoes you’ll want to show-off any chance you get. Each has a heel that’s 5 inches or less, so hopefully you won’t have to kick them off all night if you’re out on the dance floor.
Oh, and dollar divas: they’re all under $50 a pair!
Touch of Nina Genivee
Get these babies in satin black or the oh-so fashionable metallic colors of this season! You can have your cake and eat it too with the Touch of Nina Genivee, so to speak. I mean, you get a lift with the 2 3/4-inch heels, but you don’t have to be too worried about breaking your ankles on the dance floor. Plus, the footbed is cushioned for comfort. You’ll want to throw on this spicy pair with its criss-crossed straps and rhinestones any chance you can get.
These formal heels are made of fabric/canvas and run around $49.99 on ShoeCarnival.com.
Kasino Pointed Toe Pump
Regularly $34.99, the Kasino Pointed Toe Pump made by Christian Siriano for Payless is for all the ladies that love a closed, pointed toe. The shoe comes in pink, black or silver with a 4-inch heel. It’s crafted from man-made materials. While the insole is padded, you have room to place an insert in for extra cushioning.
As I write this article, there’s a sale going on, and the shoes are $17.99! They go up to size 13. So, yes: you can find a cute pump on the cheap!
Touch of Nina Kenston-LS
If you must rock a stiletto on the dance floor, check out this 4 1/2-inch heel, $49.99 jaw-dropper! The Touch of Nina Kenston-LS is a 1/2-inch platform shoe with a bulky, yet sophisticated, bow that contrasts with skinny straps. Who can’t love that sparkly jewel detail on the bow?
These stilettos are available in fushia and navy up to size 10 on ShoeCarnival.com. This embellished formal heel sports a supportive heel cup with a heel tip and sole that are skid-proof. And, yes, it provides a cushioned insole!
Sharla by Madison
This 1/2-inch platform, peep-toe comes in silver or nude/tan. A bow adorns the back of the heel which has an outside height of 5 inches. The inside heel is 3 1/2 inches.
The size range for Sharla by Madison is 5 1/2 to 11 at Shoe Dazzle. While the regular price is $49.95, you can sign up as a VIP to get the shoe for a reduced rate (with a monthly fee, that is — please see Shoe Dazzle for details).
Kela by Shoe Dazzle
There’s just something bold, fresh and like-able about these faux-platform sandals! Technically, the design is quite simple and, therefore, timeless. In fact, you may be able to wear them even outside of the party realm. The material criss-crosses at the ankles and above the toes.There is a silver-colored buckle on the adjustable ankle strap but otherwise there’s no embellishments or no bows.
The color you pick will really make a statement as the Kela comes in two bold colors: red and yellow. Or you can go classic and choose a white/off-white. The inside heel height is 3 1/4 inches. They’re available in sizes 5 1/2 to 11 at a regular price of $49.95 (VIP pricing available), and are featured as a best-seller on Shoe Dazzle.
Yes, you can be stylish even when spending under $50 for a pair of formal shoes. So, what pair will you party away the night in? What color will you choose?
