A new year and new season always brings plenty of excitement for fashion lovers.  Change is always an opportunity to revamp or just add a few updates to your closet.  One of the easiest ways to do this is with a new pair of shoes.  Whether sneakers or heels, what woman doesn’t love to go shoe shopping?

Since 2015, the block or squared heel has been a popular choice. Once the hot item in the 1970s, it was brought back during the 1990s and now once again we’re feeling the inspiration into this decade.

Everything goes from the super low to a high stacked heel. It’s a welcome relief to those who are stiletto-challenged and find it much easier to walk in wider heels. They certainly provide more comfort and balance while still remaining packed with style.

If you haven’t tried them yet, now is the time to add something new to your shoe closet. You won’t be disappointed.  Most of these styles look great day or night. It’s all about finding your own sense of personal style.
