Rad Or Bad: The “Sensible” Pump

You never thought you’d see this heel shape again, did you? This ’90s-by-way-of-the-’60s block heel is making a comeback, giving our go-to ballet flats a little lift. While you may have thought this shoe had fallen to the consignment-shop-only rack, it seems like designers are thrifting for inspiration just as much as we are. 

With a pair of cigarette trousers, opaque black tights, or just bare-legged with a shift dress, these shoes are undeniably chic (not to mention, you’ll never be that girl with the sad feet in the middle of a party). For that Audrey-chic flat that won’t ever bring you down (in fact, it’ll give you a lil’ boost!), shop these “sensible” ballerina pumps that are quickly becoming our everyday shoe of choice.
