As we approach fall (yay yay yay yay!) so much new stuff is coming out and fall trends are coming into focus- for footwear that means the block heel. We saw some of this during the summer, but it’s even BIGGER for fall. Which is fantastic since it makes walking a whole lot more stable (can we all agree there is nothing more cringe-worthy than watching a woman walking like a foal on new legs in expensive, painful 4″ stilettos?) Be it boots, booties, pumps or even flats- a chunky heels of any size will make you look of the moment this coming season. I’m still on the fence a little with the new trend of “lady who lunches” style small block heels on flats a la Ferragamo, but I’m sure I’ll come around!
Here are some great selections from this trend (CLICK EACH IMAGE TO SHOP!)
HAVE A WONDERFUL LONG WEEKEND GUYS! SEE YOU TUESDAY!
I love the super tall block heels but I have a friend who can’t get with it yet. She’ll get on the bandwagon in a year or so when they are very trendy, I bet. The nude suede heels in the fourth pic are everything. Love those.
for anyone looking for a cute cheapo pair, target is on it!
Please update source for the nude pointy toe shoes. That would be a great fall work shoe
The red suede ones are spot one. I could see them paired with anything from jeans to black or tan slacks to a great wool crepe skirt. It’s going to be a great Fall!
Love them all! Hardest time is pairing it! Need some ideas!
Love the red suede pumps in the bottom left hand picture. Does anyone have a source for those shoes? Thanks.
They are gorgeous Gucci!
I went back and forth and back and forth about buying these Stuart Weizmann heels (in part because of the price) and I have been surprised how much I wear them. Wear them to work all the time (and they are the only pair of heels I wear from my door to my office – no need for flats on the train), wore them to a wedding, and have worn them out at night. In short, I LOVE.
Great choices! I bought the gray suede pumps up top but in black leather- great every day shoe for work. I too only like a block heel with a pointy toe.
Another reason that I need to remember to always keep my old clothes and shoes, because these look EXACTLY like the 18 pairs I had in 2000/2001 era (which were thrown away or given to Goodwill many moons ago). Sigh.
Does anyone recognize and have a source for the slingback black/brown booties in the 2nd picture? They are amazing! I want them!
I’m with you! Been trying to figure out who makes these!
Love a block heel with a pointy toe — definitely avoids the “ladies who lunch” look even with a low heel.
Dying over pic #2 at top right corner – anyone know source?
They are Schutz Quesadilha Slingback Mules. They were available on shopbop, but as far as I can find, they are sold out everywhere. There are some similar styles available is you look for “slingback mules” but nothing as fab as those.
I love them too! They’re Schultz brand and you can find them on Free People.
I can’t find them on Free People…any place else?? Must have those shoes!! (top right corner)
I have the lucite J Crew in Cabernet. LOVE!!!!! Sadly, they are not part of the sale this weekend.
I wore block heels many years ago. They are easy to walk in and make a lot more sense to me than spike heels. But I can not wrap my head around jean hems that look like a close encounter with a weed whacker. Help me understand the appeal.
Yes, exactly! I can’t get behind that shredded hem either. I have some old black suede booties with a block heel. Almost donated them but now I’ll take them to the cobbler to have them freshened up.
I just cannot get into this look. I want to so badly… it’s so practical. Too clunky or something? Maybe I’ll come around! :)
(I do love the booties though!)
I’m surprised you didn’t show the Boden ankle boots in the leopard print.
I like the Ferragamos best, precisely because they’re a little “ladies who lunch.” Would be great with something biker, like a leather jacket.
So glad this is coming into style, because try as I might, I cannot walk in heels! Chalk it up to years of thinking I was too tall for heels, thus never getting any practice in wearing them. Definitely need to get a pair of these!
I NEED those maryjanes in the third picture….anyone have a source??
They definitely are topshop, but only available in the UK. Maybe the’ll make their way over here later in the season…
Pretty sure those are Top Shop – http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?Ntt=ginger+patent&storeId=12556&productId=20903887&urlRequestType=Base&categoryId=&langId=-1&productIdentifier=product&catalogId=33057&geoip=noredirect&network=linkshare&utm_source=linkshare&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=QFGLnEolOWg&siteID=QFGLnEolOWg-PrLJhMi47bM.f5YrjY9qlw&cmpid=aff_lsus_QFGLnEolOWg_15&_$ja=tsid:21416|prd:QFGLnEolOWg
Those lucite J Crew shoes are gorgeous. J Crew by the way is coming to Nordstrom.
