Block Heels – The End of Stilettos or Nah? The new Accessories Shoe Revolution that has us all Walking much differently than usual. Remember this shoe journey? “Oww.” Walk walk walking. “Oww.Oww. Oww. Ouch-ouch.” Oh the things we women do for beauty. How many times have we had that experience, balancing on our sky high stilettos? Let’s face it; if a shoe is aesthetically appealing, then the idea of the accompanying pain to follow doesn’t factor in for much. Of greater importance might be the amount of hours we can take the discomfort. But there appears to be some relief in sight on the style accessories forefront for all of us shoe enthusiasts—it’s the block heel, which has reemerged. (Cue the Beatles Let it be, add one haphazard record scratch and then Pipe in some Jay-Z/Rihanna Run This Town). Once widely popular during the polyester-bell-bottom-years of the 1970’s, this shoe has backtracked its way around, and gotten a revamp with a cooler design and much more modern appeal.
Block heels – Jeweled, Studded or Plain?
you don’t have to search very far to see what the shoe designers have come up with. Just click onto any fashionista’s Instagram feed and you’ll peep block heels galore, lots of them even worn by celebs such as Taylor Swift, Kate Bosworth, Beyonce, and Olivia Palermo just to name a few. “But in addition to the style, are they wearing them for comfort though?” you might ask. Well, they’re not going to be as cushy as your go-to Ugg slippers, but in contrast to the stiletto, the answer is a resounding yes. Basically, there’s more of an even distribution, so the wider block heel provides more support for our oh-so-delicate calves. Simply put, this means that those shoes were made for walkin,’ which is a more than valid reason for the block heel movement to stick around for a long time to come. Will you be strutting out in a block heels anytime soon?
