“Comfort is so important when it comes to footwear. We all know that teetering on a stiletto heel is not the most pleasant way to spend an evening. Wear this style with a minimalistic shift dress to showcase the architecture of the shoe, and the look can take you from day to night without a problem.”

Neely Woodson Powell, Owner of Charleston Shoe Co.
“I would pair them with cigarette jeans, a tucked-in button-down, a fun blazer, and a little Hermès belt. Don’t overdo the trend though—I’m not a fan of the block heels with five-inch platforms on the toes.”
