Tuesday Shoesday ~ I finally found the ideal summer wedges!

Do you remember that last month I was on the hunt for the ideal pair of summer shoes? Although I managed to pick up a pair of comfortable mint-green wedges from the carboot sale, I wasn’t any closer to getting my ‘ideal’ pair that I discussed in this blog post. My requirements are a pair of high heels that aren’t too high to be comfortable, a neutral colour that would go with anything and a style that can be worn all year round. So really, I wanted some non-strappy nude wedges with a small platform sole.

I wore my carboot sale shoes a lot during the last couple of weeks and my search for the perfect summer shoe was looking more and more unlikely to come to fruition. I’d tried shop after shop, but all the summer shoes had massively high chunky wedges and would be pretty-but-painful after a short walk. But then I remembered that my new favourite carboot shoes were originally from Next and why shouldn’t there be a similar pair in the Summer sale this year? So I headed to Next and can you believe it, there they were – the ideal summer shoes.

They have a nice cork wedge heel but it’s balanced out with a chunky platform sole, which makes me taller but in reality I’m only walking on heels about 2 inches high thanks to the platform and the balls of my feet will be all the more comfortable for it.  The patent nude colour is exactly right for my skin tone, so it will elongate my legs when I’m going bare-legged in the summer and can even be worn with footless tights in the autumn. The style is summery enough with the peep-toe, but I am certain that I will be able to wear them with any outfit and at any time of year too. These shoes are still available in the summer sale for under 15 quid and come in black patent too, so maybe I’ll be going back for another pair…
