Favorite Summer Things: the beach, cookouts, long days, Yes, shoes! Autumn, winter and even spring in New England are all pretty much boot weather, which is good for those of us who are lazy about keeping up our pedicures, but not so good for versatility. Summer is really our chance to branch out, to try something new, to take a new pair of shoes on a sartorial spin. And when it comes to finding the perfect pair, I often turn to local Regular readers may remember last summer's "ShoeBuy in the City" series, where ShoeBuy and I styled outfits specific to Boston neighborhoods. This summer, I am happy to kick off a new series, "Summer with ShoeBuy" where we'll be focusing on fun summer styles / trends and how to wear them! 

This month, we're focusing on one of my favorites - the walkable block heel. True, these blue suede shoes Steve Madden sandals are tall, but they are surprising easy to walk in, thanks to a chunky, block heel that gives a lot of stability (and doesn't slip into cobblestone cracks - a bonus for Boston streets). These bad girls are perfect for a cocktail party or wedding - you'll be able to focus on balancing your food, drink and handbag, instead of just balancing. If you're looking for something with a little bit more everyday-appeal, I've picked a few of my favorites from ShoeBuy's extensive collection of block heels below. These summer styles would look great with a sundress, jeans and a tee, or even city shorts and a jacket! Which one is your favorite?
