A block heel is a wondrous creation. It gives you height and glamour without any discomfort. Yes, oh yes. Whether you’re stomping around London or partying until the early hours, a block heel won’t hurt your hooves. There are millions of them around at the moment. Some tall, some round and some decorated with gems. My personal favourites are these spangletastic numbers. Covered in light-attracting, multi-coloured sequins, they sing Christmas.
