Fashion Top Five: Substantial Chunky-Heeled Pumps

April 6, 2008 by Rebekah

Lately we've been noticing a whole bunch of beautiful wide-heeled shoes next to the more traditional, pointy-toed pencil-heeled designer fare. The heels are generally pretty high – all of the ones below are 3" or more – so you won't feel like you're clopping around in those frumpy low-heeled chunky loafers that cast a shadow over the early '90s. Below, five choices that would work well with wide-leg pants, bootcut jeans or as the don't-mess-with-me punctuation mark at the bottom of a clean-lined cocktail dress.

These Marc by Marc Jacobs sandals ($440) have a linen-and-leather upper, translating the heavier chunky-heeled look seamlessly into springtime.

While we swore off Juicy Couture's sweatsuits a long, long time ago (nobody knows I'm wearing the sweatpants around my apartment, right?), we love the rich look and snug elastic heel support of their Mariska pump ($275).

This open-toed t-strap pump ($99.95) comes in the most appealing royal blue color; the elegant double t-strap balances out the thick heel.

While the heel is a bit thinner than the others, this Prada pump ($475) still has enough substance – not to mention the hidden platform – to make these shoes an object of desire, even with a 4" heel.

The sculpted metallic heel on these patent leather pumps ($275) adds some interest to a trend that's been re-imagined every which way since the fall.
