All About This “V-Cut” Shoe Trend (+ 20 Pairs I’m Loving!)


My Favorite V-Cut Shoes

I almost didn’t write this post because I couldn’t figure out what the heck these were called! Haha! But as I do my (ehm, weekly) shoe shopping I’ve been noticing a lot of these “high cut” shoes. Sometimes they are “v-cut” sometimes they’re “glove” style… whatever they are. I like ’em. Have you noticed them too?

They basically look like a regular pump or mule but have a higher, often v-shaped, cut than a normal shoe. Samantha calls them “old lady” shoes, which is pretty accurate. Also accurate: I want a pair in every color. So instead of breaking the bank on doing that, I just bought a few (LOL) and rounded up the rest for you guys to see!

12 Pairs V-Cut Shoes

No. 1 White V-Cut Slingbacks | No. 2 Silver V-Cut Pumps
No. 3 Blue V-Cut Block Heels | No. 4 Turquoise V-Cut Pumps
No. 5 Periwinkle Glove Shoes | No. 6 Metallic Pink V-Cut Pumps
No. 7 Red V-Cut Slingback Sandals | No. 8 Orange V-Cut Pumps
N0. 9 Peach V-Cut Heels | No. 10 Rose Gold V-Cut Flats
No. 11 Gold V-Cut Mules | No. 12 Yellow V-Cut Heels

So what are your thoughts on this style? Love? Hate? I feel like it’s an acquired taste, but perhaps I’ve convinced you! I’m pretty into it.

      Thanks Kylie!! Good to know!! Let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like to see! =)

    I have always loved this style of shoes. Growing up, they always had several (hundred) pairs at my local thrift store. Thinking back, I have so much regret for not buying every pair because I was young and they weren’t “trendy.” I love the retro vibe of them!

    • Kelly

      Ha I have so many similar regrets! Like how I always made fun of my Grandma’s (original, mid-century) furniture and now I’m all “So do you really still need this, Grandma?? Can I take it off your hands?” Haha!

    I gotta pass on this one. My feet are pretty big and this style would make them look like cruise ships on the ends of my ankles.

    Nice collection! I loved No.8 they are awesome.
