Tuesday Shoesday – Grandma’s favourites – Stocky Heels

| 7 Comments

The latest trend in footwear is something that your grandma might be more comfortable wearing than you would be, but according to fashionistas stocky heels are überchic. Here’s super-cutie Zooey Dechanel in her granny-courts:

Despite their tendency to make even the slimmest ankle look thicker, these heels are comfortable and wearable – the kind of multi-purpose shoe that you can wear all day and still look stylish on a night out. Or so they say.

Here’s my pick of the chunky-bunch from Zara, Urban Outfitters, ASOS & Kurt Geiger(actually, I’m just hoping that the loud colours and garish prints will draw attention away from the stumpy heels).

Hmm, I’m not 100% convinced that I’ll be wearing this trend anytime soon, but maybe the little extra height (yes, I need it, I know) coupled with a comfy low-heel will win be over. It’s definitely worth a trip up the high street to try some on anyway 😉 What do you think of this footwear trend? Are you already stomping around in stocky heels? Let me know…

  6. What a nuisance, i bought some proper vintage shoes with heels like this just a few weeks ago. They look like Dorothys ruby slippers but in gold, now everyone will have stumpy heels and mine will be less special. POO HEADS!

    • Oooh your gold shoes sound amazing! No-one else will be able to replicate your vintage Dorothy look so your glitzy shoes will still be super-special! Enjoy wearing them & saying “There’s no place like Preston” 🙂 x
