Ladies! I am looking for comfortable heels now that we are going back to the office and client site. How do people feel about the block heel pumps? Do you think it's cute or a little old-fashioned? Thanks☺️

I don’t mind a block heel but that bone color looks like something my mom would have worn in the 70s

I have these. They’re super comfy and got me loads of compliments albeit 5ish years ago. (The Marc Fisher Zala)

I have these in black and in nude. I think the pointed toe makes them a little more youthful while still being very professional. I don’t like a super high heel, because I’m already 5’9, but I also can feel dumpy in flats depending on my outfit.

They are very traditional/conservative, but they look good with long trousers. I personally don't like the look of them with dresses or skirts.

Absolutely!

I love block heels because I’m a thiccc. If you want to not look so old-fashioned, maybe a little higher would offset but this is not too bad.

I mostly wear block heels. The Sam Edelman Stillson and Nine West Astoria are two of my favorites.

Sam Edelman shoes are my favorite. I have these and then 3 pairs of their loafers and I get a ton of compliments (or I suppose GOT a ton. Haven’t worn them since The Before Times)

Block heels are soooo comfy and super in! Just need to find styles that read a bit more contemporary. Here are a few I like. I have the Chanel ones and the sam Edelman ones and love them both! Get tons of compliments too.

Great options! Thank you!

I don’t love the look but they are comfy. Don’t care for the OP choice but others in this thread are nice

Literally love block heals - wear them all the time because you can buy fun colors/textures and they are soooo much easier to walk in.

Yes to block heels! Very comfy especially when you're going to a work event. I prefer them pointy toe, but it's all up to you.
