I hope you have enough space in your closet because the underdog of shoes has made the biggest comeback in 2019! I’m talking of course about the block heel.
Scientists have confirmed that lower, block and kitten heels are the future of footwear and we are totally here for it! Now, I'm not saying that you need to throw your higher heels out… but you probably should.
Was this sub-heading too subtle? Because let me tell you, as a shoe connoisseur ( a title that I gave myself) I’ve been around the BLOCK when it comes to finding the right shoe, and full disclosure, most of the shoes I wear are pretty to look at but good lord they make my feet hurt! I’ve always told myself ‘who cares if it hurts, as long as you look good in the streets, girl!’ This is a motto that I’ve grown up with, and I’m constantly chanting ‘suffer for beauty, suffer for beauty’ BUT I JUST DON’T WANT TO ANYMORE! *crying face*
This is where the block heel comes in. They instantly elevate your shoe game without putting strain on your feet! They’re suitable for all ages, yes I’m looking at you, aunty! The heel is also lower to the ground so limping around all day like a wounded gazelle is a thing of the past, girl!
We appreciate the shoemakers who put in the time and effort to craft beautiful and unique heels, and who are also making use of recyclable or sustainable materials to create their heels, making the world a better place, one pretty shoe at a time! Matsidiso has a chic range of wooden block heels, made from sustainable leather that was sourced in South Africa.
How lucky are we to live in a fashion-forward country where eclecticism is evident in everything we wear! Combining traditional textures with modern styles have become the norm and combining styles has never been more fun! The block heel can be dressed up OR down and come in a variety of materials! They are an absolute staple for work and can be paired with any pant or skirt. That being said, they also pair well for any formal event, where you’ll be standing for hours on end, including weddings, as they offer hours of comfort and support!
