As Carrie Bradshaw once mused on Sex And The City, “Maybe the reason Cinderella was so happy wasn’t because of the Prince, but because of the shoes.” And we think she makes a very smart point. Modern day Cinderella’s will be swooning over this seasons hottest trend – block heel wedding shoes. 

For nearlyweds, finding the perfect pair of wedding shoes is almost as important as finding the right wedding dress. They will help to conquer the walk down the aisle, looking chic while mingling at the reception and help with your moves on the dance floor, too. Choose the wrong pair and your toes may feel cramped and your arches stretched, and this is where the bridal block heel comes into play. 

Shoe designer Charlotte Mills says: “We love that this trend makes it really easy for nearlyweds to find a style they're comfortable and confident in. So many wedding venues have multiple floor surfaces to contend with, whether that's grass, gravel or old church tiles. When wearing a block heel or a chunkier heel, you really eliminate the issues that would arise with a stiletto.” 

Richard Marsh from bridal footwear brand Rainbow Club completely agrees, and tells us that block heels are some of the most comfortable wedding shoes available. “Block heels offer the perfect balance between comfort and chic – a true staple, and this trend is most definitely here to stay,” he says. “Block heels offer all-day comfort and are perfect for outdoor ceremonies and parties (you don’t have to worry about your heels getting stuck in the grass). As we see more and more nearlyweds opting for less traditional weddings, this trend isn’t just for the aesthetics!”
