If gold wedges are the queen of comfortable and versatile shoes (and they really ARE…), these shoes would have to be the queens of gold wedges. All other gold wedges bow down before, and so do I, actually, because they’re all the proof you need that glamour isn’t just reserved for stilettos!

Although they’re a totally different shape, obviously, these actually remind me of the Giuseppe Zanotti pumps I featured a couple of weeks ago: they have that same “solid gold” look to them, thanks to that mirrored leather, which makes them look almost like a carving of a shoe, as opposed to the real thing.

They ARE the real thing, though, and should be very wearable, despite the high-shine upper. I tend to wear wedges on days when I need a comfy/casual alternative to heels, and find they work just as well with my 50s-inspired dresses as they do with a trusty old pair of jeans. If you have difficulty walking in heels, but don’t want to wear flats, these would also be a good alternative to a strappy sandal, or other more traditionally “dressy” style.

As good as these would look with jeans or trousers, I’ve put together this look with one of those dressier occasions in mind:

An outfit that’s as simple as the shoes are! One of the reasons I wear/feature so many dresses like this one (er, the ones I wear personally are a whole lot cheaper, needless to say), is that they make a statement all by themselves, and need little in the way of accessorising – the ultimate in effortless dressing, even although people will constantly accuse you of having out in soooo much effort!
