Spring 2013 is shaping up to be the season of the kitten heel. Marc Jacobs felt so strongly about the short little pump that he showed variations for his own label and also for Louis Vuitton, and everyone from Oscar de la Renta to Christian Louboutin made the silhouette part of their spring lineups. Here, some of the best mini heels hitting stores now.
