Spring’s the perfect time to put your best foot forward and debut the hottest new footwear styles. So what will we all be wearing for spring/summer 16/17? If the runways are anything to go by (which let’s face it, they are) chunky block heels are where it’s at. And the best part? Block heels are just as comfy as they are stylish. Score!
On the Runway
Chunky block heels were seen everywhere on the spring 2016 runways. Marni sent super-cute styles down the catwalks, including a design featuring a black upper and a contrast powder-pink block heel. For those wanting to be a bit more daring, Marni also debuted sky-high platforms with a monochrome upper and contrast towering block heel.
Elsewhere, Dior sent a directional design down the spring runway featuring a patent black and yellow upper and contrast bright white block heel. Dior also showcased a lust-worthy design in different colourways, black, white and nude, with statement buckles, tie-up ankle detailing and sky-high block heels. We love.
Finally, Valentino took an edgier approach to the trend with a chic black design featuring studded block heels. Perfect for taking a slightly more leftfield approach to traditional spring dressing.
