The wide heel makes it easy to balance in, harder to get stuck in between the bricks of Old Town and Georgetown’s sidewalks, and generally, more comfortable. With the right pair of stacked heels you can go from working at the office to sipping Moscow Mules at your friend’s rooftop party to every single wedding on your calendar this summer.
