A girl’s best friend, perfect for those days you just need a little extra added OOMPH, heels are the perfect way to elevate an outfit. With a staggering array on offer, we at Begg Shoes and Bags know that finding your perfect heel can be almost as difficult as walking in the wrong ones! Let us take the pain out of choosing…
Styles of High Heels:
Sublimely stylish, the slingback encompasses the sides of the feet while having a strap around the heel. Often paired with an open or pointed to, the slingback adds a touch of classic elegance to any pair of shoes. Slingback frequently have a buckle fastening, allowing them to be adjusted to your individual needs, giving support and comfort such as these Tamaris 29605-001 Yam in black.
Open toe or peep toe heels
Effortlessly elegant, the open toe is classically stylish, that peep of perfectly polished toes giving a flash of skin. Peep toes are often paired with a more enclosed foot to focus the attention on the front and elongate the leg but open toes come with a variety of other uppers. Also, perfect for those of us who are less confident about our toes, the open toed shoe usually covers all but one or two. A sparkling example of an open toed shoe is the Vanille 50719-40 by Lotus, a truly stunning peep toe.
Perfect for a summer wedding, the strappy heel embraces the best of sandals and heels. Offering the added height and sophistication of a heel while intertwining the cooling benefits and style of a sandal. Membur bring us Durcal 06281-87 a perfect example of a strappy heel, elegant and stylish.

The stiletto. Epitomised as a power fashion statement in the 80’s the stiletto has been worn and loved for many years. Usually paired with an upper that encases the sides of the foot while leaving the very top open, the stiletto helps to elongate the legs and make the bust and buttocks appear more prominent. Tamaris 24428-018 Taggia 24428-018 is a truly gorgeous fuschia stiletto.
Mary Jane Heels
The Mary Jane is a practical yet stylish choice of heel. Featuring a strap over the foot for added security, the Mary Jane is perfect for work or for those with a narrower foot.

Offering increased comfort, the wedge creates a greater surface area in contact with the floor and gives added stability. The classic wedge comes in many heights from just a touch of a graduated heel for those days you need a little lift to a substantial 5cm or so, perfect for a summer BBQ or girl’s night out. Marco Tozzi’s Senwedge is the perfect example of a classically stylish wedge and is available in 3 colours.
Kitten heels feature a smaller (2.5 to 5cm), more tapered heel than a stiletto, perfect for when comfort and security are a must but you need a little lift. The shorter heel height offers increased stability, often paired with a sling-back for timeless elegance, the kitten heel is a gorgeous style of shoes. Hume by Gabor is a truly gorgeous example of a kitten heel.
