Summer is about spending as much time outdoors as possible; even if you're staying in the city, it's a time for aimless strolls and walking instead of taking the subway or Uber. So when it comes to warm-weather footwear (or all-weather footwear, if you're me), walkability is an important factor to take into consideration. A good pair of sneakers is obviously important to have, as are flats, but the block heel is also a strong, underrated option. They offer much more stability than any other type of heel, thereby allowing for all-day comfort.

And with brands making a slew of metallic versions right now, they can also be pretty fun, whether they're dressing up an otherwise casual look, jazzing things up for a night out or accessorizing a summer wedding outfit. Silver is really a neutral, but a special one. As Carrie Bradshaw, who I'm inexplicably quoting in 2019, put it (referring to her own silver Manolo Blahniks), "Sometimes it's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun."
