In the fashion world, spring has sprung and sandals are already available for purchase. When you look at shoes as much as I do, you begin to notice a lot of commonalities in what designers want to push each season, and so far I’ve noticed a rise in denim accessories and oxfords; today, we’re adding chunky, block-y heels to the list.

In general, low or mid heels are nothing new to the fashion footwear circuit; they’ve been relevant for a few seasons. These chunky, low-heeled sandals may not sound as appealing as thin-heeled stilettos, but trust us, block heels feel modern and reinvented. Higher than a kitten heel and much lower and thicker than treacherous stilettos, these are the grey-area option you’ll go back to all season. The Huffington Post called this style the “Grandma Heel,” and while that may be the first thing that pops into your head when you think of chunky heels, we promise that the options we’ve assembled below don’t feel the least bit elderly.
