Monday, Monday…. I have had my eye on these wedges for quite some time now. I don’t normally like wedges. It’s because the bottoms are normally espadrilles or wood, or at least a material that resembles wood. So I find myself with very few times when a shoe that casual is appropriate, and when I do have such occasions, I normally have prettier heels in my arsenal.
That being said, designers are now making efforts to make wedges that don’t make you feel like you’re wearing wooden blocks on your feet. This pair by Elizabeth and James is a great example. This is the line designed by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, and I’m a huge fan. The color and the material, and the fact that the suede covers the entire shoe, makes them incredibly chic and versatile. These might be some of the most sophisticated wedges I’ve seen.
I will definitely be on the lookout for more designers putting the “edge” in “wedge.”
