Block Heeled Sandals
BLOCK HEELED SANDALS
Call them a perfect blend of style and comfort and I'll call it a signature style. I'm spotting block heeled sandals all over this summer and I'm loving the look. My pregnant step-daughter, Briana, showed up at dinner with a stylish pair of black block-heeled sandals last week and reported that they are a comfortable way to wear heels, even when pregnant. Talk about walking on solid ground in style!
Block heels are significantly more comfortable than the stilettos I've almost completely given up on, finally, at age 55..... Sigh! I have to admit that years of rocking medium to high heels, on a regular basis, have taken a toll. I now reserve the higher heels for a dressy event or special date night, otherwise, I'll reach for the block heel or stylish flat anytime. I also find the block heels to be more balanced and sturdy than flirting with the delicate kitten heel, while usually lower, but can often feel unbalanced.
Block heels are my new favorite for summer. You will definitely see some chunky heels popping up on my Instagram page for upcoming travel.
This gallery features some of my favorites looks. I especially like the ankle strap numbers. Nude shoes ALWAYS elongate the leg which is a plus in my style book. Are you a fan of the block heel style? Has your shoe style changed recently like mine has?
