When it comes to heels, I usually steer clear from them. If I have to wear heels, I go for a kitten or mid heel as it’s easier for me to walk in and can keep my balance. Anything higher than that feels like an accident waiting to happen! While looking through Dune’s SS15 collection, I noticed an emerging trend of low block heels. I was ecstatic as most styles I come across are way too high for me (even though the shoe is stunning) so was refreshing to see friendly heel heights. There was a particular style that caught my eye last week called Joro. It’s a monochrome snakeskin style featuring wide straps and perfect for those who want a sandal with a bit of heel. I’ve worn these to work and they’re the so comfortable and gorgeous too! The sandals also comes in nude shade but I prefer the snakeskin style as it be teamed with bit of colour or with flared jeans or a midi skirt for summer.
Are you a fan of low heels like me or prefer skyscraper heels? Do you shop at Dune? What are some of your favourite styles from the SS15 collection?
