Wedges aren’t just this season’s most fashion-forward footwear, they’re also its most comfortable. With added support and stability, you might not even notice the added height!
Aside from their considerable comfiness, wedges are the perfect summer shoes because they’re easy. They epitomize versatility, dressing down a dress or dressing up a pair of shorts. And come weekend BBQs, you’ll be relieved not to be sinking into the grass with your sharp stilettos. Trust us.
It’s plain to see why wedges have become a summer wardrobe staple, but at least some of the trend’s credit should go to our favorite royal, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Kate’s LK Bennett wedges are synonymous with her polished-yet-laidback feminine style. Last spotted on her North American tour with Prince William, her black espadrilles have been rereleased and renamed — from “Greta” to “Kate” — due to their popularity.
So give your feet a well deserved break from needle-thin heels with a sturdy (and trendy!) pair of summer-appropriate wedges. Here are 11 of our favorites — including, of course, an LK Bennett “Kate” lookalike!
