Chunky Heels

Another new trend circling the fashion front is the resurgence of what designers are calling chunky heels. Some of you might know them better as platform pumps, but either way they can be identified by the abundance of wood which adds inches to an already high heel.

Why are chunk heels popular now?

Fashion enthusiasts say the retro platform pump is a favorite because of its ability to elongate the woman’s leg and balances the length of dresses. Platform pumps also offer women an alternative to stilettos, which can look too dressy in a season with so many minidresses.

Many of us here at Shoeflyer are fans of chunk heels; in fact, here are a few of our top pics:
