With designers like Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Mansur Gavriel on the rise in the fashion world, I can’t help but rejoice in the rise of the sensible heel. Don’t get me wrong, I love a sexy stiletto as much as the next girl. But let me be clear, I’m no Carrie Bradshaw. I have the feet of an old Grecian woman who’s spent her whole life making calamari. The thought of wearing a stiletto in a grocery store A) makes me an asshole and B) tells the world that I always prefer to “do the most” — even in a Walmart. And, to be honest, a sensible heel has it’s benefits: you can wear them for longer periods of time without wanting to chop off your feet, they look great with a pencil skirt or your oldest pair of jeans, and they make that clacking noise on the floor so you may not be wearing the highest heel but your ego can still remain higher than everyone else’s. Whether you work retail or sit at a desk in corporate America, there’s no place a modern sensible heel isn’t welcomed.
