The Block Heel by Nicholas Kirkwood


Download a fabulous illustration by designer Nicholas Kirkwood of The Block Heel, a key shoe style of summer 2011 as detailed in our summer shoe special.

Nicholas Kirkwood says of his sketch, “I created this shoe in collaboration with Peter Pilotto and the vivid works of Donald Judd and Daniel Buren inspired it. Block heels are a strong, bold look for summer – they’re a fresh, clean, modern look and feel very now.”
