Who said good things couldn’t come in small packages? This season we are majoring in wedges and minoring in fabulous low to the ground styles! We’re taking it down a notch to give out tootsies a little break without sacrificing style.
Steve Madden has taken a stab at this trend many times and totally succeed when he designed the Cabezza. This jazzy petite wedged gladiator sandal is made in either cognac or white leather, then embellished with ethically chic beading and tied together with a rear zip ankle counter. The Cabezza complements your denim shorts or fun, flirty rompers.
Another edgy, yet short wedge you should keep your eye on is the Kassa by Kelsi Dagger. This sandal boasts a gladiator feel but on a more strappy level. Multi-bands of soft leather crisscross the foot and wrap the ankle. Available in black, white and metallic pewter, there is a color for every look you’re trying to achieve. Pair the Kassa with khaki short and a flowy tunic or a maxi dress for a bohemian feel.
If you looking for a more versatile and casual approach to this trend, slip on the Kaffle by Vaneli for Jildor. This thong sandal comes in natural cork and a rainbow of patent leather colors; red, orange, yellow, black and white. The 1 ½” wedge is wrapped in rope giving it a summery espadrille feel. The Kaffle looks great when dressed up with white cotton capris and jersey-knit dresses.
So when you want to give your feet a break from those sky-high wedges, remember there is an alternative to those boring flip flops. Low wedged sandals, like the Cabezza, Kassa or Kaffle, are ultra-fashionable and offer you all the detailing of a high wedge without sacrificing comfort!
