Block Heels Are Back & Here Are Our Top Picks

Twiggy, insouciant in her micro miniskirt and block heels gave us a taste for comfortable chic in the 60s. A relief for your back, they are now no longer just comfortable but are giving stilettos some much needed competition. From Alexander Wang’s ‘cut out heel’ reinvention to Yves Saint Laurent’s boldly colourful adaptation, the block heel of today lets us walk (literally) in Twiggy’s iconic footsteps.
Here is our list of favourites from recent collections:

  • Regina Pyo’s suede Maya Heel shoes combine an asymmetrical silhouette and colour
    blocking to animate even the most spartan outfit.
  • Looking for something more dramatic? The Jacquemus Pointed Block Heel Pump with its theatrical heel is a statement piece that can help you reinvent your entire look.
  • Or perhaps Alexander Wang’s Avery Mule is more your style? We love the ‘floating effect’ of this futuristic piece.
  • We also really love Loq’s latest collection of Ankle Length Boots. Swoon over the craftsmanship as you add some oomph to your everyday jeans and tee.
  • You might want to grab these Block Heel Sandals by River Island before summer ends. Perfect with a slip dress or a pair of shorts, these floral sandals will elevate any summer outfit.
