There’s a new shoe on the block that is redefining granny chic. It’s got a soft leather upper that slips on well past the toes and a modest square block heel that makes comfort fashionable. The origins of this quirky heel can actually be traced back to 2011, when Argentinian designer Martiniano Lopez Crozet introduced his signature, handcrafted glove shoe, which was inspired by a sock shoe from the Middle Ages. Since then, designers like Phoebe Philo, Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Rachel Comey have introduced their own versions, sending these conservative pumps to the top of many wish lists. How do you feel about the glove heel? Yay or neh?
