Wild about Wedges

ROnC,

Glad to see came around to wedges. My question to you if a wedge had a floral pattern or was a wild colour or had a series of thinner straps woudl that work for you??  Mine run from more utlitarian designs and colours to more feminine styles like described above. All my wedges are 5" and up with a sole :) exception; a leopard print wedge from Target from 2007 (4.5") my wife actually got for me. I think you are still a devotee of the pump.

Happy, I am not a big fan of the florals for some reason.  Have some a few I like, but mainly find that, to my eye, it seems to distract one from the shape of the shoes to looking at the pattern.  Goofy, I guess, but that's me!  I do like many of those with the thinner straps - personally though, I've had quite enough of the gladiator style however, that just seems like it won't go away.  And the single high ankle strap with the single tor strap is also getting a bit worn out in my eye.  In the end, however, you are mostly correct - I do tend to like pump styles more than most others.  I have in the past had a pair of these from Aerosoles, though mine were black.  I did enjoy them - easy to walk in but have the feminin touch I seek.

Well, I like wedge sandals as well, I have a few pair that I wear often.  Last week I bought a pair of ankle strap wedges at Payless, the style is Paige.  The sandal has a simple look, and the wedge is low, about 2, maybe 2 1/2 inches, which is good for me since I am tall already.  

I have worn them around the house a bit, they are comfortable and can't wait to get out in them.  Here is a picture....  

And....   RonC, I like your aerosols sandals.  I almost bought a pair of those last year..... But the heel was a bit to high for me and I have to many heels already !!!

These look fantastic!

It just goes to show that even relatively low heels (no offence!) can be very sexy too!

Thanks SF.  They are quite comfortable.  I was able to adjust the width of the toe area which helps with my rather wide foot.

Hi All,

Saw my favorite Aldo store manager today and ordered these which were on the clearance rack but only in 8.5. They will be at the store in about a week. They were "wedged" between other sandals so I couldn't see the profile on my last visit there. They are the

"Gwyni" wedge which are about 6" high and in this same color (size 11). So cute I may wear them out of the store. I figured this wedge thread is still going well so why not post here instead.  HappyinHeels or maybe Wild in Wedges

Black would be fab, but if you can do both :)

Some 40 years ago when I started to attempt to solve the mystery surrounding the female footwear, I would often raid the BAKER'S Qualicraft clearance racks.  That was when I could barely fit into a size 10 and find a rare 11.  On one occasion, I found a smooth white Mary-Jane with a round pleated toe with maybe a 2 1/2" wedge. I had a friend who actually had the same style who really looked great in them.  I was so tempted to to say something but back then - times were different.  Sadly, my feet continued to expand as now a 13 is the only close fit.

These are both so cute - though I like the 2nd pair more. Enjoy them, especially them being from your wife - that really great.

Wore my Steve Madden Nalla Wedge Strappy Sandals in taupe for the first time today, only a 9 hour day. Got them on clearance in the winter, but haven't wore them more than to see that they fit and to add an extra hole to the strap. Got several compliments in them.

After 9 hours of wearing/walking.
