Shopping the Trend: Block Heels

While stiletto’s may always have a sweet spot in our hearts, there’s no denying that this season it’s all about sporting a great block heel. And while feet everywhere are sighing with relief, we’re thrilled that while they might certainly be more comfortable, their style isn’t being sacrificed. For example, Proenza Schouler and Maison Margiela give us contemporary and sartorial-worthy versions of the silhouette thanks to patent leather square toes and color blocked wooden heels. And while Valentino, Nicholas Kirkwood and J.Crew keep it sweet and feminine thanks to swirls of sherbet colors and floral embellishments, Dior, Giuseppe Zanotti and Jimmy Choo provide sexy edgy options with caged details and exaggerated shapes.
