Feminine Finish: Block Heel Sandals

One of the hottest shoe trends of the 70s, the block heel is back – with a modern makeover. While channeling the glamour of the disco decade, the block heel sandal of 2015 pays homage to the 90s, too with a hint of grunge rock edge. The chunky square heel makes this on-trend style more comfortable than stilettos, though just as chic. From sky high styles to those with a lower, more subtle design, these sandals offer an effortless finish to any ensemble. 

High Rollers 

When it comes to heels, the age-old adage “the higher, the better” holds true. Whether you prefer classic neutrals or bold hues, the high block heel sandal has something for every aesthetic. Simple designs feature minimal straps while eye-catching pairs offer fun prints and intricate details.

Keeping a Low Profile 

If sky-high heels aren’t quite your speed but you crave a feminine, leg-lengthening look, the low block heel sandal is the perfect fit. Equally suitable for a day at work or a night out, pair this style with jeans for a casual vibe or dress them up with a midi skirt.

Lace Them Up

These laced-up looks combine two of the summer’s hottest shoe trends: the gladiator sandal and the block heel. For an understated, delicate look, wrap laces close to the ankle. To fully embrace both of these striking trends, lace the threads all the way up the leg.
