The unexpected return of functional footwear
Seriously, being just a couple of centimeters off the ground has never looked so good! Block heels became the winning style this year when they were sent down the spring/summer 2017 runways for some of the most influential labels.

Designers such as Chanel with their rendition of the classic two toned pump succeed, while designers such as Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander Wang experimented with the shape and material of the block heel by incorporating patent leather, mesh, and even embellishments on heels to make them the hit of the season. These “trainer heels” are here to stay and have been co-opted by street style and celebrities around the globe.
