Thumbnail image for lk-bennett-heels.jpgWe could rave about exciting, avant-garde footwear styles till the cows come home on this site (and frequently do) but if we're honest, the shoes we keep coming back to time after time are the classics, and if you don't want to have to continually re-buy these styles, it makes sense to pay just a little extra for the ultimate version of the look you love.

It doesn't get more iconic than the classic black high heel, so if you're looking for a timeless piece that will see you through many parties and formal events to come, we'd recommend this lovely style from LK Bennett. Smooth, shiny and gently balanced, it will be a beautiful finishing touch to any dressed-up look. Half sizes are available too, for an even more perfect fit into your life.
