If you’re anything like me and like the look of heels but really can’t wear heels much, wedges can be the perfect solution. In my case, I love how elegant heels look, but my feet really hate having a lot of pressure on the balls of my feet. With a wedge, the pressure is better distributed along the entire foot, so I don’t get the ball of foot pain that I would with regular heels.
You can also get wedges in a wide variety of heights, and they can really augment your wardrobe! I’ve had wedges with low profiles that have been both dressy and casual, and you can definitely find both in higher profiles as well. Why not expand your wardrobe with some cute new wedges? Here are a few that can get you motivated to do so:
The Mephisto Barbara – I LOVE LOVE LOVE this wedge! It is so versatile, you could wear it with either jeans or a nice dress. As with all Mephisto shoes, the Barbara is incredibly comfortable and contains the highest quality materials and hand-made craftsmanship. And who wouldn’t love the memory foam and Soft Air midsole? The shock absorption and overall comfort is fantastic!
The Earthies Manza – a stunningly beautiful new peep-toe wedge with a n adjustable ankle strap. Available in Black or Taupe nubuck, this wedge contains a cradled toe area to keep pressure off your toes, while providing support the entire length of your foot. Earthies shoes contain cupped heels and anatomic arch support as well, so your feet will feel great as well as look great.
The Taos Pyramid – This classy wedge contains a 2 ¼” heel and two adjustable straps for a customized fit. With beautiful embellishments like metal medallions, this full-grain leather shoe is beautiful as well as comfortable. I love how the cork and latex footbed conforms to my feet, and provides fabulous support. The full-grain leather upper is available in Bronze, Black Snake, or Grey Snake leather, and is a gorgeous enhancement to your wardrobe. This timeless style is already proving to be a hit!
The Naot Rome – Slides can be wedges too! Naot’s version has a casual look and feel, with a comfy leather upper that is fully padded for extra support and coziness. The best part is the anatomic cork and latex footbed that is wrapped in suede and molds to your foot. It’s available in Polar Sea or Black Matte Leather, which can go with almost anything in your wardrobe. One of the most easy-to-wear wedges out there, the Rome is expected to be a popular model this spring.
The Clarks Rosepoint Bell – Even ankle boots can be wedges! With its side zipper for easy on-off, the Rosepoint Bell has an elegant profile and sleek appearance to make this model a must have. The OrthoLite cushioned footbed makes walking in these boots a breeze, and the soft fabric lining provides breathability. It is particularly easy to wear due to the 2 ½” wedge height – you get glamor with the heel, but cozy comfort due to the wedge.
