History and Benefits Why Choose Block Heels
Wondering why you should choose block heels like our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels? Learn more about the history of block heels and why they are a must for your shoe closet.
History of Block Heels. High heeled shoes, also known as high heels or simply heels, are a type of shoe in which the heel is tall or raised, resulting in the heel of the wearer’s foot being significantly higher off the ground than the wearer’s toes. High heels make the wearer appear taller, serve to accentuate the muscle tone in the legs as well as make the wearer’s legs appear longer.
There are many types of high heels, varying in colors, materials, style, and origin. Perhaps the first known pictorial evidence of high heels comes from 10th-century Persia (Iran) where men wore them in combination with stirrups for horse riding.
Heels have had significant cultural and fashionable meanings attached to them over the past 1,000 years, especially regarding the social construction of gender in the West. Although by the early 17th century high heels were a sign of masculinity and high social status in Europe, by the end of the century the trend had spread to women’s fashion as well. By the 18th century, high heels shoes had bifurcated along gender lines, with men’s heels being either riding or tall leather boots, and women’s becoming more like the heels we see today.
By the 20th century, narrow high heels represented femininity and “erotic capital.” However, a thick high heel was still acceptable for men in some situations. Until the 1950s, heels were typically made of wood, but today they can be made of a variety of materials including leather, suede, and plastic.
In 1965, one of the masters of shoe design, Roger Vivier, launched a new shoe silhouette down the runway at YSL. It was the Pilgrim pump — a square-toed, square heeled heel that looked decidedly modern and eminently fresh at the same time. A wizard at the architecture of footwear (he brought us the delicious comma heel and one of the original spindle thin stiletto shapes), this silhouette was all hard edges, playful, poppy, mod.
Almost 20 years after Dior had debuted the New Look with nipped waists and peplum moments, it was now all rectangular mini-skirts, triangular trapeze dresses, bright saturated colors. As always, shoes reflected the cultural moment, echoing back a spirit of unstructured playfulness and experimentation. Women were revving up for the women’s movement – they wanted silhouettes they could MOVE in and the block heel fit the bill perfectly.
At the same time chic, and as we saw in Belle de Jour, indeed even sexy, the block heel on the Pilgrim pump ushered in new thinking of what was possible in shoes and sowed the seeds for platforms and chunky moments we started to see in the ’70s.
What Are the Benefits of Wearing Block Heels? While we obviously love the look of the Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels, there’s so much more to love about block heels than just looks. Below are some of the benefits you get by wearing block heels:
- Block heels are comfortable.
We love the way our high heels look – they give us an extra height and add a touch of sophistication to our outfits. However, since the creation of the first stiletto, women have been looking for a way to make these shoes more comfortable.
This is where block heels like our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels come in.
One of the biggest benefits of block heels is the fact that they bring height – all without putting strain on your feet. Where a skinny stiletto forces all of your body weight onto a single point, block heels spread the load.
If you’re plagued by muscle fatigue and aching ankles every time that you wear high heels, then our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels will be a great relief! While they aren’t in the same category as your favorite fluffy slippers, block heels are definitely more comfortable than your average stiletto.
- You’re less likely to injure yourself.
Along with the added comfort of our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels, there is also the benefit of balance. With block heels, you can say goodbye to walking precariously on stilts all day and possibly twisting your ankle!
Block heels have a larger surface area, so it will be easier for you to keep your balance – which means that you don’t have to worry about any embarrassing falls.
- They are a must-have in the office.
If you’re employed in a formal workplace or if you’re required to meet certain footwear expectations, then our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels are just the thing! These cozy shoes will be easy to wear at work, no matter what the day brings! Whether you’re chained to your desk throughout the day, or constantly up on your feet, this block heel is perfect for you.
- They are an essential choice for formal occasions.
If you’re headed to an event that will last for more than a few hours, our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels might be the best choice for you. Why? Because block heels have the advantage of long-lasting support and comfort! If the ceremony is long and involves standing for hours, then our block heels will you endure the event?
Plus, since they’re a better-balanced style, our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels will have no trouble taking you onto the dancefloor!
- They are NOT a seasonal fad.
We love sandals and we love boots, but what we love most of all are shoes that we can wear all year round. While there are different types of block-heeled shoes, the most practical and possibly the most popular style of block heels is the pump.
Being able to fit them into your wardrobe throughout the year makes investing in a good pair of block heels a great idea because even though we can’t really be sure how long the trend will last, you have enough opportunity to get your money’s worth.
How Can I Get Better at Wearing Heels? When it comes to wearing heels – such as our Mika Strapped 2 Inch Block Heels – practice really does make perfect. Don’t be afraid to wear your heels around the house for a few days to make sure that you’re fully confident when you do head out into the world.
