Dad sneakers—you either loved them or hated them. And while they’re still very present among the street-style scene, they’re slowly but surely being replaced with updated versions. One of which is the new heel du jour. We give you the grandma shoe. Whether or not your actual grandma would wear these is still up for debate, but she probably could, given the low block heel and foot support. We’re so happy shoes are still skewing comfortable, because we don’t know how we’d ever go back to towering stilettos with a side of arch pain. Here are eight grandma heels giving our dad sneaks a run for their money.
