Ask Our Style Techs | Most Wearable Wedges

Q: I am petite so wear a lot of high heels, but during the summer I want a more comfortable shoe without losing the height. Can you suggest some comfortable wedges that look cute with both dresses and shorts?
– Diana A.

A: Wedges are the best choice for height and comfort during the spring and summer, and there are SO many great styles and colors out right now!  Look for wedges with a platform in front to lessen the slope of your foot in the shoes. This makes all the difference and you’ll gain height without sacrificing comfort. Flatforms are another option and super comfy, however, not as flattering on the foot as they have a tendency to make your feet look longer. Thus, we will stick with the more flattering wedges with a gentle slope. Here’s the best of what we found in a variety of looks and at different price points.
