We just can’t get enough of these stylish block heels
Move aside stilettos, block heels are the way to go for comfort and style. No more incidents of being wedged in the escalators, or getting stuck in pavement cracks. For your ease, we’ve rounded up 11 drool-worthy pairs that are bound to make a statement.
Blade block pumps, $45.50 by Charles & Keith
We’re totally digging this dainty embroidery print which gives the shoes a Peranakan vibe. The muted green base colour also means they’re striking enough to be swooned over but sensible enough for the big board meetings. It’s a win-win situation right here.
These bright bad boys will wow in a crowd for sure. What makes this sleek pair of pumps stand out, besides the metallic silver, is the slightly curved heel. We ladies do so love a curve in the right place.
Show off your wild side with this faux fur animal design. They can be worked with a pencil skirt and blouse for a ‘sophisticated but fashionable’ vibe or, with jeans and a tee for your down-time look. Oh, and we must add that the heel is only 5cm high, making walking a breeze.
Embroidery ankle-strap heels, $79.90 by Charles & Keith
Oh this pair, how we do heart them so. This is a super fun pair for business or pleasure, with embroidered flowers complementing the black and white stripes – it’s all about the detail. Pairing sandals with cute socks is a major trend at the moment, so grab some ankle socks and strut your stuff.
Gucci embellished leather pumps, $1,034 via Net-a-Porter
Gucci just always has a knack of getting things so right. Besides the iconic ‘GG’ plaque and striped webbing, the vintage-inspired faux pearls on the heel give the smart leather pumps a whimsical twist. You’ll also be happy to know the supple backs can be collapsed for a slip-on look.
Nicholas Kirkwood zaha suede pumps, $925 via Net-a-Porter
Ohhh, would you just look at these for a moment? Sometimes you can just let your shoes do the talking, and this is one pair you’ll be incredibly proud to flaunt. The block heel is an art in itself, with a gradient of neon pink to blue, wrapped in a geometric metal overlay.
Lifting a loafer with a chunky heel? Oh we love it! We’re in love with the metallic cracked finish and fringe detail on this pair. The cool shade of green also gives a dose of character – we can never look at loafers the same way again.
If you’re after simplicity, you may like these understated pumps. The gold accent on the block heel instantly makes it look exquisite but they’re plain enough to become your daily shoe staple for office runs.
