The chunky heel–a perfect amalgam of an easy-to-wear wedge and the sexy stiletto–is back for fall 2008. Not only are these more comfortable and easy to walk in than stilettos, but they are more refined and streamlined than the wedge. What's more, the chunky heel comes in a variety of flavors for all fashion senses this fall; some are uber-stacked, others more dainty. Here are the top five styles to have you stepping stylishly into fall.
Stacked heel loafers are professional and polished for day time, but with all that elevation, they also transition nicely into night. Shine 24/7 with these $750 Dolce & Gabbana PDNY Loafer Pumps with a one of a kind golden heel.
Get art deco with these chubby, stubby Peep-Toe Mary Janes by Vince Camuto ($125) that feature a Velcro strap and top-stich detailing.
Steal the oxford look and save some green with these sexy two-toned Bibliotheque Heels from Anthropologie ($98) featuring menswear-inspired laces and a sturdy wooden heel.
From the famed Tory Burch, who can resist her flannel Laura Chain Pumps ($375) with their sophisticated styling and a gold-trimmed, stacked wooden heel?
