We love our skyscraper heels as much as the next girl, but with the help of Balenciaga, Chloe, Lanvin and others, Spring/Summer 2013 ushered in a much needed reprieve. Svelte 5inch heels—that often require the skills of a tightrope walker—have morphed into a more manageable, chunky block, and we’re grateful. They are the perfect marriage of style, comfort and functionality, so if you are not willing to forgo one for the other then a block heel is your best bet this season.
We’ve rounded up 11 for you to choose from!
