I bring you the block heeled sandal. Were I not pretty much all shopped out right now, what with wedding decisions and resultant outlays, I’d be considering a pair.
One can opt for high fashion, by Nicholas Kirkwood. These would be kind of cool to toughen up a point d’esprit lace wedding dress, but they’re cream and I’d need white. Dang.
and Rupert Sanderson. On sale, both of them. Salvatore stains ladylike stacked wood heels red, ol’ Rupert punches out a patent leather hole and fills it with Lucite.
And finally, totally affordable, comfortable from all reports, and available for any size 7.5 or above, the iconic Sam Edelman Trina. Why small foot people are excluded we may never know.
An instant, and cushioned at that, style update.
