Women have been in search of the perfect balance of style and comfort in shoes for countless years. During the ongoing love-hate relationship between women and heels, there have been numerous attempts to bridge this ever waning gap.
Fashion designers have tried to create women’s shoes with heels that do not end in swelling or blisters while looking fabulous in doing so. Having the right kind of shoe does not only increase a woman’s confidence, but it can also transform your look to turn any heads in the room.
That’s why square heels were made! But what is so great about them?
Square heels are similar to the block heels but tend to have a thicker heel and lean towards a more rectangular shape. Due to its shape, there is more surface area for you to stand on therefore the increased stability. Your body will instantly feel the positive effects of switching to these heels, offering improved posture and body support. Gone are the days of embarrassing yourself with those untimely falls on the walkway while wearing heels.
A square heel’s solid heel structure will certainly distribute your body weight evenly which makes it a much more comfortable shoe for your feet. When wearing thin heeled shoes, you are putting more weight on the front of your foot, therefore, having a solid heel will result in a more comfortable stand. While it gives you that lifted feeling, it does not give you the headaches of stilettos making it the more popular choice for women today.
Did we mention that they’re also stylish?
While high heels emphasize your legs, they tend to almost leave you cursing at yourself for wearing them at the end of the night. On the other hand, there is something not quite right with wearing the comfortable square heel at a fine dining event. Thankfully the evolution of shoe design has completely changed the square heels, a far cry from the same square heels your grandmother used to wear. The square styled heels are making a resurgence on the runways with its chic style and trendy designs, making it a must for anyone’s shoe collection.
They are also very practical.
Forget carrying the extra sports shoes for the commute to work as these are equipped for the stresses of daily life. From the routine of standing at work, to having drinks with friends after hours, we got you covered. Not only does this type of heel can get you through the day, but it can also get you through stylishly.
With its practicality, comes its versatility. Not only can square heels get you through the workday without causing you any pain, but it can also get through your wardrobe without much trouble. Partner them up with culottes or grace with ripped denim jeans. The possibilities are endless, and so can your styles.
The heeled shoe trend is moving away from the thin stilettos of yesteryears and is paving the way for the more versatile, and comfortable square heeled shoes. Women’s prayers have been answered in the search for the balance of comfort and style. This does not mean the end of the high heels, rather an alternative for making additional height become an everyday occurrence.
