Finally, a womenswear trend that is not only fabulous to look at but is actually wearable too. Block heels are a saviour. These shoes add that bit of height every girl needs, whilst still being comfortable.

The beauty of the midi block heel shoe is that you can actually walk in it. No more spending the night hobbling around complaining or reaching that ultimate low point and having to walk home barefoot.

These six pairs of midi block heels are all different and beautiful in their own way, but have one thing in common, they won’t live in your wardrobe for fear of being worn out and will still be on your feet at the end of the night.

With all the cab money you’ll save with your new found ability to walk to the bus stop, you might as well buy two pairs.
