It’s official: The suede grandma heel—or the block heel, the glove heel, the ballerina heel, whatever label you fancy—has reached trend-peakness in the best way possible. After all, what’s not to love about a classic low-stacked heel that won’t knock you over? The modest style, all but resting upon a two- or three-inch elevation, makes for the kind of comfy shoes that fashion girls (and stylish seniors) can get behind.
And, as expected of every great fashion trend cycling through its Circle of Life, every mass retailer is now clamoring to cash in on the granny-heel action—which is good news for those of us who already plan on rocking these minimalist shoes into our older age. While we still honor the OG style created by Maryam Nassir Zadeh, who it seems has butterfly-effected this whole trend, its triple-digit price point isn’t most budget-friendly for those of us wanting to play with the trend without commitment. Fear not, because in the slideshow above, we’ve culled 15 low-heeled wonders that are all less than $100.
Sound too good to be true? Go ahead and non-guiltily treat yourself to a pair of these heels immediately. There’s still plenty of time for bragging rights.
