A summer footwear collection is never complete without a blocked heel. This classic staple is both versatile and comfortable due to its low-heel shape. It is always in-style and can be paired with practically any outfit in your wardrobe. In our edit below, we have gathered some designer options that you'll love. If you're going down the minimal route, then turn your head towards Gucci's mid-heel slingback with horsebit or Sam Edelman's signature Tarra 50 Slingback Pumps. Don't be afraid to go bold like Valentino Garavani's popular Tan-Go Patent Leather Platform Pumps. To add texture to an otherwise simple design, you can opt for pairs from Stella McCartney, Attico and Kurt Geiger. And, when in doubt styles from Saint Laurent, Emporio Armani and Jimmy Choo never disappoint.
