In many closets, there lies a great divide. On one side, you find the comfortable shoes - the sneakers, ballet flats and flip flops. Not always super stylish but totally realistic. On the other side, are the uncomfortable shoes - the high heels. They look great but don't get chosen as often because they aren't always functional. That's where a low block heel comes in - they are the perfect "in between" shoe! Other comfortable shoes just weren't cutting it with this casual outfit, but a little block heel has all the aesthetic appeal of a high heel with the comfort of a flat shoe (especially if you've got high arches like me). Although they are out of season now, it's a good time to score a great deal so I took the plunge. I gathered more options and ideas for this must-have shoe style below!
