Why the Block Heel is a Prime Woman’s Best Friend

Block heel sandals

The hottest new fashion trend in shoes is the block heel, which is good news for those of us who have lived too many years in pencil-thin heels. According to podiatry experts, the thicker the heel, the better for comfort and less strain on your feet and ankles. While the block heel officially debuted a few years back, they were typically edgier and higher than most of us would care to wear. Fortunately, now, you’ll find a multitude of styles and heel heights to choose from.
