When you want a little lift without the hurt of a higher wedge.
The “block heel” is one of my personal favorite footwear inventions there is (after, probably, Birkenstocks and the enormous running shoes I wear to eliminate shin splits – fashion!). I say this because I know we can all agree that heeled shoes are, at times, very nice. They give your leg a little bit of a lift. Nice! They help you dress up for the things for which you need to dress up. Also nice! But they can be impractical, and painful, not to mention, very bad for shin splints, I’ll have you know.
