The supermodel has kicked off her trip in style, arriving in Nice, France on Monday afternoon sporting a casual comfortable pair of white sneakers that featured a rubber sole, perforations on the toe box, and an engraved detailing. The relaxed style is a rare one as Klum is almost always wearing shoes with an elevated height to them. In April, the supermodel appeared on the set of “America’s Got Talent” in a pair of slouchy knee-high pointed-toe stiletto boots that boosted a heel that was approximately 3-inches.

That followed an appearance in March, where she wore a pair of the Eva thigh-high boots from Le Silla. The boots were made of white vegan leather and boosted a sharp, thin 4.7-inch stiletto heel, making them a great transitional piece that works well for spring and fall.

About pointed-toe pumps

Pointed-toe pumps are regarded as a preferred shoe for red carpets and formal occasions. Various designers including Chanel and Valentino offer pointed-toe models regularly as a part of their catalog. The popularity of the slim and chunky stiletto heels with an angular toe-box has started to re-emerge again in the 2020s. In 2024, the style trended on an upward swing with stylists recommending pointed shoes to achieve simple and classic looks for spring and summer. It is expected to continue to be a major trend throughout the remainder of 2024.
