When I was a little girl, my mum had a pair of black patent wedge sandals which I used to sometimes put on and try to walk around in, even although they were several sizes too big for me. Since then, I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for the black patent wedge, and these ones by Rupert Sanderson are particularly appealing to me because they use one of my very favourite colour combinations: black and gold.
The heel on these comes in at just under 4″, and the shiny patent upper is topped with a large gold disk, which matches the heel. This is a very dressy take on the wedge, and these are the kind of shoes you could wear to work, and then afterwards, for dinner or drinks. And while black and gold may not seem like a particularly summery combination, just imagine the way that embellishment on the toe would catch the sun!
These shoes are £474.30 at Spartoo (who’ve actually just taken delivery of a batch of Rupert Sanderson footwear, all of which is on sale, so worth checking out if you’re a fan of the brand): click here to buy them.
