It may not feel much like summer here at Shoeper Towers, but that doesn’t stop me looking at pretty, summery shoes. (I’m trying to make it stop me from actually buying them, mind you: rain and open toes do not mix!) As I’ve mentioned once or twice or a hundred times, the humble wedge is one of my summer essentials, and I think Rocket Dog have got it spot on with these bright pink ‘Grazie’ wedges.
The heel on these is 9cm / 3.5″, which should be low enough to walk in comfortably (especially when you take into account the platform sole, plus the arch support provided by the wedge, which should make these as comfortable as a pair of much lower shoes). The colour, meanwhile, is that wonderful, Barbie pink, which is gloriously girlie (perhaps too much so for some of you), but if you feel that it’s not quite feminine enough, well, there’s always that bow, for added effect:
I love the floral print fabric used here: so sweet! In fact, the overall effect is super-sweet, but because of the open-toed, slingback design, they’re not so sweet they’ll leave you with a stomach ache.
Now for the best bit: these are down to £26 in the Spartoo sale: click here to buy them.
I never thought I’d ever say this, but these are too pink for me. 🙁
So much want, so little availability in my size 🙁
I found a pair of wedges in Next yesterday that called to me from the shelves and screamed summer 🙂 I don’t think I’ve seen them on the pages here but I had to share them with a fellow shoe lover: http://www.next.co.uk/g36256s7
They’re so much prettier in the flesh, as it were, but still look pretty from the pic too (you can see them on a foot further down the page). I’ve never seen wedge heels like those! Glad I bought them now too cuz my size is sold out!
I positively adore them!
Oddly enough, the name of these shoes mean “Thank You” in Italian. What are they thanking you for? Buying them?
