Made for Walking: Low Block-Heel Booties

I have a confession to make: lately (as in, the last few weeks when temperatures suddenly dropped, and just like that, it became fall), I have been shunning my other beloved boots for a pair of low block-heel booties. I’m perfectly smitten. Most boot lovers have their standard pairs of flat boots (I mean, how dreamy are these glittered beauties?) and stiletto boots, but consider this: a go-anywhere boot that elevates your outfit to chic status, without a whole lot of effort. Oh yeah, you heard me right; that’s the power of the low-heeled boot.

The low block heel makes these boots just as comfortable as your favorite flat boot (i.e., the fan favorite Stuart Weitzman Lowland over-the-knee boots), but it gives you that little extra lift without the ouch factor. Lower block-heeled boots are also casual enough to wear day-to-day and on the weekend, but still polished enough for work, dinner out, even a party.

These are a few of my favorite picks for the season …

Now don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of higher-heeled booties that I dream of; the kind that are perfect for date night, but the lower-heeled boot offers up plenty of mileage (and style). I love that I can stomp around town on afternoon errands, and then easily run out to dinner in the same look. These boots were most definitely made for walking.

    Without a doubt my favorite shoe silhouette for fall! Can we all give thanks for the fact that block heels are making a comeback? My feet are so happy!
