Spring Shoes – The BLOCK Sandal

Every day this week I am featuring a new office appropriate Spring Shoe Trend.  I’ve already talked about the Cage Look and COLOR and today I’m talking BLOCK Sandals.  If you only buy one new shoe for spring it should be one with a block heel.  You can combine the block heel with one of the other trends (cage, color, metallic or blues) for an opportunity to trend double-dip. #yesthatsathing

I have focused on the two strap block heels because (1) you can find them everywhere right now and (2) they go with everything.  I had a similar pair years (and I mean years ago #everythingoldisnewagain) that I wore with everything.  Those had a dainty heel though.  The block heel makes them WAY more wearable – no more sinking into grass or getting caught in urban grates.  #heelwoes

If this is your first shoe roundup then you should know I have strict criteria for my picks … they must be items I either already own or would buy.  Because I know not everyone wears sky high heels, I  try to include a mix of heel height options.  This is a little more challenging when you are talking about a block heel but I included several lower heel options. The winners also need to be highly versatile.  I want shoes that could be worn with suits and other office attire as well as to weddings and brunches.  #myshoesmultitask

BLOCK Sandals Sampling

Hands down the best purchase you could make would be a nude version of this sandal (you can find them anywhere and at any price point).  These shoes can be worn with a suit, dresses, crop pants, shorts … you get the idea.  And because they are nude they mostly disappear leaving your outfit center stage.

Black is also a good option but will be noticed.  As I was walking into get coffee this morning, a woman was leaving wearing a sheath dress with a black pair of these and she looked stunning.  The wedge on my shoe blurs the block heel line but makes them much more wearable when lots of walking or standing is involved.

Feeling Bold?  Then go for a statement shoe in a bright color or metallic hue.  My yellow shoe below also comes in Blue, Floral Orange, Silver, Pink and 4 other options.  (And now that warm weather has arrived you can ditch the dark tights!)

My Top BLOCK Sandal Picks

I focused on the two strap versions of the block heel but you will find that all the spring trends can come with this style of heel.  I included picks with the Cage Look shoes and you will see more later this week with my picks for the other trends.

These are my yellow shoes pictured above.  Two metallics, two blacks, two nudes and a few bright colors – these shoes are lovely in any option (10 choices) and they also have a lower heel version for those adverse to the 4″ heel.

This is such a trendy silhouette right now and this is a very wearable height. It is also comes in a 4″ heel. This comes in 8 colors.

This is the closest shoe to mine. It comes in four neutrals and is the perfect heel height. (Says the girl who loves high heels.) #sorrynotsorry

9 Color Options including 3 metallic, black, nude and two lovely blues (one with attached flowers). The reviews are stellar and the heel is a little lower.

Snake Print is very suit worthy. I love the additional detail on the strap as well.

I love the linen and metallic blend of this lower heel shoe. It also comes in two other neutrals.

Tory Burch, Navy, Block Heel. Yes, yes and yes. Need I say more? It does come in white or tan if I didn’t have you with navy.

A little more casual but I like the edgy details and I know many will like the lower heel. Available in 6 colors.

These shoes are perfection and closest to my wedge version above. Also available in two different blacks and a tan.

These shoes are highly suit worthy and the details are fabulous. The extra strap, the black and white combination, the texture on the white. All perfection. Four other color combinations if black and white isn’t your thing.

Happy Shoe Shopping!
