Wild wedges: for when you want a heel, but not a spike

Posted by

For those of us who have issues walking in heels (and don’t be fooled: I love to LOOK at insane heels, but god knows I can’t walk in them!) wedges are the perfect solution. You get a little elevation, but with the advantage of a more solid sole — and often the assistance of a little platform.

Today I’m wrastling up a few of my favorite wedges. These run the gamut from the more casual, retro end of the spectrum (beach wedding? adorbz!) all the way to glitter-crusted neon space booties for your sci-fi midnight adventure wedding. Oh, and one pair of fuzzy mice.

  1. Ariel, I feel like no matter what style of shoe you post, there is ALWAYS one covered in rainbow glitter. 😀

    • Frank-n-Furter, it’s all over! Your mission is a failure, your lifestyle’s too extreme. I’m your new commander……

    • Agreed!

      I had a bit of an argument with a few people because I wanted to put a note on my website warning the ladies that we’d be on grass much of the day so tiny heels could be a bad idea.

      Apparently some people thought I was ordering them around and put it in much the same catergory as “all guests must wear olive green”. I had a suprisingly hard time explaining that I didn’t care if they got a shoe stuck and fell over, but I thought they might.

  2. This is PERFECT timing for me as I’m just getting ready for my bachelorette weekend and would like to get new cute shoes, but, there is *no way* I would last in heels all day.
    I also don’t like the cork/rope-y stuff-on-the-bottom-type of wedges (just my own personal preference), so I love the “Cupid Island” one!! (And, of course, mice!) Thanks for posting! 🙂

  3. Well, I don’t wear wedges (I don’t have a lot of principles, but this is one) and even in this shoe-category you’ve managed to stun me with awesome, fun and over-the-top. You truly are the queen of cybershoe-fun and I salute you. 🙂

  4. Oh god no, the little mousie ones are gone! So much love, they look like tiny little mascot costumes for your feet!
