Heels – we have a love-hate relationship with them. Take me for instance, I am all of five feet two and the idea of anything that makes me look taller (and slimmer!) is a dream come true. But the flip side is the discomfort. I inevitably remove my pair a swift thirty minutes into a party or conveniently find a place to sit.
Think about it, stilettos can’t be worn on cobbled ground or grass for obvious reasons. Wedges are great, but if they’re too tall, they can be treacherous. Which leaves us with the block heel. They’re almost always comfortable to wear; can be worn on all kinds of surfaces and tbh, they look as good as their not-so-comfy counterparts.
Gone are those days when people would take their Carrie Bradshaw-esque stiletto heels out for a spin every chance they got. Of course it’s still about style today, but with a little dollop of comfort to go with it. Which is where block heels come in. With their platform and wider, block-like heel, it’s the right amount of extra support a girl needs.
Painful heels and swollen, blistered toes are a huge problem that women worldwide face everyday. Some of us have given up almost entirely on high heels and only stick to wearing them very rarely.
We buy gorgeous heels with so much anticipation and expectations and eventually end up hating them when they try to murder our toes!
