Sick of uncomfortable heels?
Ditch ’em for your big day and say “I Do” to block heeled shoes instead!
They provide extra stability and comfort, so you can walk the aisle and dance the night away without the usual discomfort. Plus, with the wide range of styles available, you’re sure to find a pair that matches your wedding gown and broader wedding theme.
It’s not all about comfort though.
Block heels are also available in a variety of materials, including leather, patent leather and suede. And when it comes to design, you have a few options to choose from including closed-toe, open-toe, and peep-toe styles.
So regardless of your style, theme and dress, there’s sure to be a pair that perfectly fit your requirements.
In other words, block heel shoes are a cheeky way to add a few extra inches on your big day, without sacrificing comfort and style.
Finding Your Block Heel Wedding Shoe
When choosing the right pair of block heeled shoes for your big day, there are two key things to keep in mind.
First, consider the overall theme and look of your wedding.
Is it formal or casual? And are you going down the traditional route or aiming for a more modern style? Answering these will help you narrow down the options and choose a pair of shoes that will complement your wedding gown and the aesthetic of the day.
Secondly, you want to choose the right material for your dress and your personal style. For a formal wedding, a pair of leather or patent leather pumps may be the perfect choice. Whereas for a beach wedding, a pair of suede or leather sandals might just be more appropriate.

Block Heeled Shoe FAQs
We often see questions getting asked on bridal forums and wedding Facebook groups relating to block heeled shoes. To help keep everything together, we’ve put together answers to some of the most common questions we see.
- How do block heeled shoes differ from other types of heels?
Block heeled shoes have a wide, block-shaped heel that is typically made from wood or plastic. This differs from other types of heels, such as stilettos or kitten heels, which have tall and thin heels that are less stable and more difficult to wear.
- Are block heeled shoes comfortable?
Yes, block heeled shoes are generally more comfortable to wear than other types of heels due to their wide, block-shaped heel that provides added support and stability.
- Are there different heel heights available in block heeled shoes?
Block heeled shoes come in a range of heel heights, so you can pick the one that feels best for you.
- Can block heeled shoes be worn for extended periods of time?
Due to their wider heel, they are easier to walk in and stand for long periods of time.
- Are block heeled shoes a good option for women with foot problems or conditions?
It’s always best to consult your health professional on something like this. However, due to the stability gained from the blocky heel, they are often a better option in comparison to something with a much thinner heel.
