Beautiful Block Heels for the Races | Ladies Day with Freya Rose

Our Perfect Shoes For Outdoor Occasions

Shoes That Won’t Sink Into the Grass

A day at the races- the perfect occasion to indulge our inner chic and stylish siren.  However glamourous and fun they may be, race days are often no picnic for our feet – a full day standing and walking, navigating uneven surfaces and the vagaries of the dreaded heel sink in soft grass.  The good news is a day at the races in your favorite heels is still absolutely possible. These stunning mother of pearl block heels are the comfortable picks that will ensure you look glorious at Ascot the whole day through!

Opt for a block heel to ensure you stand pretty and avoid sinking and heel fatigue. Block heels will help you guide your feet over any uneven ground or cracks that much easier than a classic stiletto. Also consider the importance of an ankle strap- don’t get caught in the mud and keep your feet on the ground!

Freya Rose offer a selection of sleek, eye catching block heels that offer a perfect blend of style and comfort. Consider the Mother of Pearl Heel that is not only stunningly beautiful, but is also sustainable and can be cleaned with ease. A damp cloth will erase any marks and immediately return them to their former glory.

Wonderful Wedges

It’s all about white this season. Yes, wearing white can often strike fear into the heart however, by choosing a practical silhouette you have nothing to worry about!

Wearing a wedge or a platform is certainly a much more comfortable experience. The wider density of the sole will even out the pressure points and providing more space and cushion between your foot and the hard ground

Freya Rose style Felicity is a stylish and modern wedge. Inspired by The Belle Époque and Edwardian eras, the design is made from French caurdry lace and off white suede. The style features a suede ankle tie for added support.
