Mid-height heeled prom shoes are the perfect choice for people who want to add a few extra inches to their height, but don’t want to topple over walking in uncomfortable shoes, or for anyone not used to rocking heels.
Luckily for you, mid-height heels, be they block heels or cone heels, are majorly on trend this year. We’ve rounded up eleven of the prettiest mid-height prom shoes that you’ll love no matter what your prom style.
Rose gold mid-height prom shoes - Dune, £70
These gorgeous pink and rose gold open-toe sandals from Dune are absolutely perfect for showing off your pedicure. Wear them with a boho-style short prom dress to really make the most of them; the shimmering shade of these shoes teamed with a white or cream prom dress will make you look like a grecian goddess.
The criss cross design and sturdy ankle strap mean they’ll be extra comfortable, and there’s no fear of them slipping off when you hit the dance floor.
Shimmering pink mid-height prom shoes - Dune, £85
Girly girls will adore these pink prom shoes from Dune, complete with diamante detailing on the toe. They’ll transform even the most simple of shift dresses into a prom-worthy outfit adding glamour with every step.
While the heel is thin, the relatively low height means they’ll still be comfortable, taking you from early evening photo opportunities all the way through to the after-party.
Pink velvet prom shoes - JD Williams, £25
Brushed velvet is massively on-trend this year and it’s not just for winter! The sprinkling of floral decoration on the toe strap makes these shoes stand out from the crowd, while the kitten heel is perfect for a tiny boost to your height without making you tower above your friends.
For years people thought kitten heeled shoes were reserved for Grandmas, but this fashion forward footwear proves all the doubters wrong.
Pink satin court shoes for prom - JD Williams, £35
Court shoes are an eternally elegant choice that never goes out of style - just ask Kate Middleton! The oversized bow gives them a prom perfect twist, making them young and fresh rather than super sensible.
The nude pink shade means they’ll go with any colour of prom dress - maybe avoid pale pink though, nobody wants to look too matchy-matchy.
Gold glitter mid height heels - Lipsy, £49
Add a sprinkling of sparkle to your step with these mid-height glitter shoes, courtesy of Lipsy; who says you have to go super high to look glam?!
These ankle strap heels with cut-out detailing remind us of the shoes we often see Rihanna step out in - barely there, but oh so stylish. They’re an ideal choice to jazz up a simple LBD. Just grab a gold clutch bag and you’ll be good to go.
White mid-height prom shoes - Monsoon £89
These Monsoon prom shoes look so comfortable; from the block heel, to the support round the back of the shoes, to the ankle strap, we just know we’d be able to dance for hours in these shoes without a single blister.
The toe strap crystal embellishment takes them away from summer sandal territory and straight into the realm of luxury shoes - they definitely have a Manolo Blahnik feel about them.
Metallic mid-height prom shoes, New Look £22.99
The unique strap detailing on these silver prom shoes makes them different from all the other open-toe sandals we’ve seen this year. The barely there design is beautifully delicate and dainty and would look flawless with a slinky prom dress.
The smaller heel means they’ll be a doddle to walk in, despite the fact the straps are so slim. They really are elegance personified; you’ll be the belle of the ball the moment you slip them on.
Nude mid-height sling-back shoes - New Look, £25.99
These nude sling-back heels are a dreamy choice for anyone wanting a pared back, simple and chic style for their prom. Wear with a tighter dress that reaches to the middle of your shins for an undeniably classy look that everyone will remember long after they’ve jumped in their limo home.
These heels are so versatile you’ll be able to wear them countless times after the prom.
Snakeskin mid-height heels, New Look, £25.99
Embrace your sassy side in these cone heeled snake skin mid-height heels, complete with a cool ankle strap.
Granted, you’ll need to wear quite a plain prom dress to pull off these shoes, but they’re totally worth it. Cone heels are all the rage this year; they’re the most modern of heel shapes, and the mid-height makes them even cooler.
Silver glitter prom shoes - Next, £36
Live your very own Cinderella story in these sparkly silver glitter heels, complete with an on-trend v-shaped toe. Victoria Beckham has been favouring this fashion focused trend in her designs this year, and it’s a very flattering way to elongate your legs without wearing skyscraper heels.
The sling-back will make these cone heels extra comfortable, too.
Black mid-height prom shoes - Primark, £12
You can’t go wrong with a minimalist pair of black block heeled shoes, no matter the occasion. These Primark beauties won’t break the bank either, so you can afford to spend more on your prom make-up or transport.
With a statement shoe like this, go for a prom dress with lots of volume; a strappy or slinky dress would leave these shoes looking clumpy rather than chic.
