Tuesday Shoesday – Grandma’s favourites – Stocky Heels


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. 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

  7. 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!
