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?
