Memorial Day is right around the damn corner, and not long after that will follow open-toed shoe season, so I don’t think I’m jumping the gun here by too much. Also, I promise that soon, I will post flat sandals and probably some heeled ones too, but today I bring you wedges and platforms, because they’re what’s on my mind. Let’s start out with this denim Rachel Comey pair, which I think is entirely boss.
I ordered these after reading somewhere that they’re unusually comfortable. I think they look fancier than they are, too.
I’m always a sucker for a crinkled metallic effect.
Few things create outfit excitement quite like a pop of yellow does.
These would be perfect with a flowy sundress.
And I dig the dusty, faded-out blue here—I feel like it’s just subtle enough to treat as a neutral.
The combination of tweed and jute here is quite winning, and they’d go with just about anything.
The woven leather on these is chic and pretty classic.
These go for a mere $68, but almost look like they could be from A.P.C.
I just think these would be very walkable, and a grey shoe is a nice alternative to black.
OK, these splurgy sandals are slightly batshit crazy, but in such a good way that I couldn’t not include them.
The snakeskin strap here is a nice touch.
I think I deserve some small amount of congratulations for only including one clog sandal in this rundown: these are a brand-new shape from No. 6, and I think they’d be aces with a denim skirt.
I want these L.D. Tuttle platforms so badly—I have a light brown version of them from a few years ago that are now completely trashed, and I’m seriously wanting to pull the trigger because I got so much wear out of that other pair, and walked all over the city in them.
And finally: the white sole here is really fresh-looking, and often I do not like a white sole.
