If you make it a point to stay on top of the latest fashion trends, then you may already have noticed block heels have been everywhere for quite some time now. They were featured on your favorite office heels last fall and last winter’s hottest boot options. We’re excited to report that block heels will definitely be sticking around when it comes to this spring’s must-have footwear.
Let’s take a closer look at what block heels bring to the table and examine why they’re so popular right now. We’ll shine a spotlight on some of the new designs we’re most excited about wearing this spring as well.
The Enduring Appeal of Block Heels
So, what makes block heels such a must-have? Why are they absolutely everywhere right now and what’s making people go so crazy for them? Let us count the ways.
1. They’re blowing up over on Instagram.
Here in the social media age, it’s hard for a trend not to take off once it officially becomes “a thing” on Instagram. Block heels have been showing up in Insta-feeds everywhere for months now, thanks to numerous celebrities, catwalk shows, and street style enthusiasts.
2. They’re easier on your body.
Women need a stylish shoes that won’t cause them foot and back pain. Options like this sophisticated black suede shoe from Easy Street feature heels that measure in at about two inches—just high enough to deliver the visual appeal of a heel, but low enough to provide stability and support as you go about your day. They are the best of both worlds!
3. You can tackle a commute in block heels.
If you’ve ever made a mad dash for the bus in stiletto heels you don’t need to be told how impractical that choice in footwear can be. Block heels can easily get you through your morning commute in one piece, as well as take you straight into your first meeting of the day.
4. They go with absolutely everything.
When it comes to trendy footwear, some options come with a learning curve when it comes to how to wear them. Block heels, on the other hand, are the type of trend we could all use more of—the type that goes with everything! Pair yours with all of your favorite spring wardrobe staples from culottes, to pleated skirts, to ripped skinny jeans.
In other words, block heels are one of the most wearable trends to come along in a while. You’d have to be crazy not to fall madly in love with them, too!
