Thank Goodness the fashion world has tuned into what our crowd has been wanting for a long time…. a shoe with a sturdy heel that doesn’t make your feet ache, and that also looks stylish and chic. I’m talking about block heels!
Although I’ve always loved high, skinny heels and wore them throughout my 20’s and 30’s, when I got into my 40’s things changed. My lifestyle shifted and became more casual. I was working from home and being a mom and didn’t have any reason to wear heels unless I was dressing up for a conference or business meeting.
These days I find that I’m a little out of practice walking around in skinny heels, and in truth, I’m not really interested in them so much anymore, except to wear on special occasions. That’s because they’re just not comfortable or practical for running errands, shopping, meeting friends, etc.
Still, I don’t want to feel like an old lady wearing flats all the time, either so a shoe like these Aubree snakeskin pumps with their block heel are a great in-between. Please comment below and let’s do a poll, do you like block heels over 40? Yay or Nay? Here are some great looking block heels in stores right now.
