Generally, when I see block heels or any sort of chunky heel, I think 90’s, and that is NOT a good thing. Now, though, chunky heels are on more “delicate” shoes, not the big, clunky platforms of the 90’s, and that IS a good thing. Basically, they’re growing on me. And my desire for a pair of block-heel sandals was cemented yesterday when I saw a pair (I am nearly 100% certain they were the Sam Edelman pair) on a woman at Barney’s Co-Op. They were fabulous, she was fabulous, and her hair was fabulous. So fabulous, I’m copying it today – I’m going to her hairdresser to get my hair cut JUST LIKE HERS. No, maybe not exactly, but close.
Anyway, I like the new crop of 60’s, mod-inspired block heel sandals because they’re minimal, but they make an impact. And the heel is low enough to be easy to walk in, but still give you some height; I especially love the pairs with metallic heels by Sam Edelman and Pour La Victoire. They’re nearly identical, except for heel height – and price. Given that, I’ll probably go for the Sam Edelman pair if I get one.
Which ones are your favorites? How do you feel about the new crop of chunky heels? Will you buy a pair for Spring?

At first, I felt like you: Too chunky/clunky, too “been there, done that”–But now, they’re growing on me, or at least, my eye is getting used to them and I have to admit…I LOVE them! (and Lordy, Lordy! Do my eyes deceive me or do I see a pair of Eileen Fisher shoes?!?!)

I am a sucker for block heel sandals! Will have to pick a couple more up before summer. I really like #2 but they are a bit more than I am used to paying… Might have to look for a coupon or something from Nordstrom.
Thanks for the ideas and the links!
I love #1-but they aren’t Nine West-I went to the Nine West’s website AND Piperline doesn’t have Nine West- Can you please check the brand-love them and want to buy! thanks.
