My summer shoe wardrobe tends to be exclusively devoted to sandals, and the flip-floppier, the better. (Or their more work-appropriate cousins, thong sandals.)
But sometimes I want a summer shoe that’s a little more substantial, and a bit higher in the heel, while remaining foot-friendly. Enter the wedge!
Because the bottom of the sole is still a single piece of material, wedges are more stable than a standard heel in the same height. If you keep that height to a couple of inches or less, you can easily walk to work in the morning without limping home in the evening.
Look for soles that are cork, rope or fiber; these materials just say “summer,” don’t they? Upper construction can range from a very sandal-like thong to a more foot-enclosing espadrille style, but anything made from brights or cottons will take you from the office to the pool in a breeze.
I’m eyeing those adorable Sperry Santa Rosa wedges.
