Welcome to Tuesday Shoes-Day, the new feature where I show you a pair of shoes that’s captured my heart (and probably my credit card). For our first pair, we have these fabulous, simple Ann Taylor May patent, block heels ($128 + discount).
These simple spring/summer shoes are extremely versatile. Jean, from Extra Petite, wore them to our brunch date last fall and ever since, I have been lusting after them. So I am so, so very glad that Ann Taylor restocked them.
The heel height is a demure 2″, but all the better to walk in, I say. These shoes are very comfortable. However, when you’re breaking them in, you will need some Pre-Heels spray or chafe balm on your toes. The front strap needs some break-in work before you really put them to the test. After that trial period, though, they are good to go.
If you need a bit more heel, Ann sells a very similar shoe in a 3.5″ heel. Also, if you’re not into the chunky heel, they have a kitten heel in a thinner stiletto. I own these as well, and they’re almost as comfortable and just as versatile.
Land’s End has a remarkably similar shoe at a lower price point, for folks with a smaller budget. https://www.landsend.com/products/womens-heeled-ankle-strap-sandals/id_306742?sku_0=::HME
I love AT shoes! The quality is excellent and for the most part they are true-to-size and comfortable. I have bought six pairs this season. As long as you are a little patient, you can get them between 30-50% off during a sale.
I love that this is a block heel that isn’t too chunky. I find the block heels that are wider at the base so visually unappealing. These aren’t even super thick. Almost all of my clothes are from Ann Taylor and Loft…pretty soon all my shoes will be too.
You can get the shoes right now for 50% off with the code ‘Mystery50’.
