Women's Block Heels
A fashionable and comfortable alternative to stilettos and kitten heels, women's block heels are less prone to make your foot wobble. The block design means they are safer to walk in and provide more support to the heel. These shoes are available in all different types of styles and heights.
These high heel shoes are available from a wide range of brands, including Marks and Spencers, Next and New Look.
Choosing the right shoe
Flat heels, such as Mary Jane or some court shoes , provide the foot with better support than standard heels. Wearing heels can push the toes forward, moving the weight of the body towards the knees and hips which can create discomfort.
Block heel sandals with platform or wedge soles are a great way to add height while reducing the pressure on the toes. The sole will help reduce the angle of the foot and the open design alleviates any pressure. These shoes are perfect for summer nights.
Peep toe block heels offer a classy look while not having the whole foot covered. These shoes offer similar benefits to sandals as the toes are open meaning that there is less pressure.
With any shoes it's important to get the right size so they can protect and support your feet. With high heels, if shoes are the wrong size they can add pressure to the toes. Shoes with straps or support across the top of the foot, such as boots, can add to the support.
Lower heels are generally easier to wear, but the material used for the shoe is still an important consideration. Natural fibres such as suede and leather are softer and mould to your foot and are more comfortable to wear.
These block heels are available in a massive selection of different colours. Understated blacks and greys offer an elegant look, whereas bright pinks and greens function as a statement piece, bringing attention to your footwear.
