You can probably imagine how many pairs of shoes we saw strut down the runway during New York Fashion Week, and of course, all of them were incredible. But it wasn’t just the shoes that caught our eye on the “fall” runways in February, it was their structure. In addition to slouchy boot shafts and quilted fabrics, we saw a change in this season’s heels–they’re thicker!
Clearly, stick skinny stilletos are a thing of the past. Designers like Alexander Wang, Givenchy and Lanvin, finally got with the program and figured out that thin heels aren’t practical or comfortable. (Thank goodness!) The shoes (mostly booties) this fall are equipped with a big fat chunky heel, which will make walking 100 times easier. Your feet and ankles should probably send all of the designers a thank you letter or something, because once you embrace this fall trend and splurge on a pair of chunkies, you’ll be able to stand up longer and walk farther than ever. This also means that you probably won’t have to carry around an extra pair of flats in your bag. Score!
If you’re sick of wobbbling around like a baby colt on your skinny little heels, take a look at the new trend in our slideshow. You’ll be strutting around town just like the models at NYFW this season. Your feet will love you.
