When you’re a celebrity, a comfortable pair of heels is a must for hitting the red carpets and attending extravagant galas — but that doesn’t mean they have cost a fortune. Case in point, Emily Blunt’s surprisingly affordable sandal heels. Miranda Priestly might be appalled, but we were stoked to see the Mary Poppins Returns actress wearing a pair of $120 Sam Edelman ‘Yaro’ heels with her sparkly pink Michael Kors gown at the SAG Awards.

As it turns out, these bargain beauties have been Blunt’s go-to heel recently — from movie premieres to interviews to the red carpet, she’s worn them everywhere during her Mary Poppins Returns promotional tour. So, we have to believe they’re an insanely comfortable pair of shoes.

The block heels come in an array of colorways and textures (we’ve seen Blunt in at least three different hues), so there’s endless options for pairing this perfect spring shoe with any outfit. You’ll be reaching for these heels for weddings, date nights, and even work events. Pair them with a slip dress for a night out on the town or with cropped trousers and a bold blazer for work.
