I remember wearing chunky block heels practically every single day throughout high school, which is why when stiletto heels came into the picture, I welcomed the change with open arms. And now for the very same reason, I’m welcoming the comeback of block heels! Funny how things work in fashion, eh? 😉
Well, I have to admit I was hesitant when they showed up at the likes of Miu Miu and Prada in previous seasons (and, of course, seeing them on clogs didn’t help much either), but when block heels made an appearance on Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2010 show, I began warming up to them. And then any other bit of speculation died down when I first set my eyes on these highly coveted, absolutely rad booties, and the rest is history! 😉
For all you people who hate wedges, block heels are definitely a great alternative as they offer two of the key factors that wedges offer — comfort and height. They are also really easy to wear and look good paired with almost everything. Wear them with maxi skirts and socks while it’s still cold out, and of course during the summer the options are endless – from summery dresses, shorts, and rompers to cropped or flared/wide-leg pants.
With that, I leave you with a few cute and affordable block heel options below. I mostly picked sandals, because I’m so ready for spring, but booties and pumps in a block heel are also a must-have!
So, have block heels managed to seduce you yet? Write back, lovelies!
