One of the trendiest heel shapes of the 1960s has made its way to the future. This spring, we’re seeing oodles of block heels adorning everything from pumps to sandals. Like other footwear trends we’ve featured, this one is yet another look that’s very easy to wear for moms and moms to be. No matter the height, the block style heel is solid and comfortable. It also provides some surface area for extra special touches like studs or metallic wrapping. Don’t throw out your wedges but do make sure a block heel shoe joins your wardrobe for spring and summer.
