Are you ready to say farewell to blisters this spring? Us too!

Have you ever been out and about, noticed someone wearing heels or wedges and thought, “How are they wearing those here without their feet being in massive pain?” Us too. We really want to become one of those wedge-wearing warriors, but we don’t think we could deal with the potential swelling and blisters. Good thing we don’t have to!

Enter the most comfortable wedges five years running! These Rockport Briah Gladiator sandals prove that a boost in height doesn’t necessarily need to equal a boost in pain (or price!). Would you believe Us if we said our feet might even feel better than ever in these wedges? Seriously!

Over 350 shoppers have left glowing reviews on these Briah sandals, calling them “stylish and comfortable right out of the box” with “no break-in period” and “no blisters ever.” Reviewers can’t stop talking about the extreme comfort factor, saying they even beat out sneakers and that they’re “more comfortable than slippers,” too! We wouldn’t even think that was possible, but everyone insists! Even typical heel haters can’t get enough of these shoes, loving how their “feet feel secure” in them for all-day wear!

These wedge sandals have a full grain leather upper with top-stitching detail. They’re strappy from open toe to ankle, as expected of a gladiator shoe, forming a cage silhouette. At the top, we’ll see an adjustable hook-and-loop strap at the ankle, with hidden velcro to keep it in place! It truly is possible to have a nice, adult pair of shoes with the amazing powers of velcro!

Along with the adjustable top strap, the strap just below features subtle goring attached to the heel, a small elastic panel that helps the Briah customize its fit to our foot and make for an easier on and off. Also helping with that is the rear zipper closure, which matches the color of the leather upper!

This shoe has a wonderfully cushioned footbed with soft and breathable linings. It also has a heel cup to keep us balanced, sturdy and cozy. Below that heel cup, we’ll find the 2 ¾-inch, cork-wrapped wedge heel, which is complemented by a half-inch platform under the toe!

The outsole of the Briah is made of a durable rubber, featuring a floral design for traction — and fashion!

This comfortable walking sandal is currently available in various colors, all of which are on sale! The colors stick within the neutral range, so whichever one we end up choosing will be a shoe we can wear nearly every day of summer and beyond. There’s a black version, a white version, a brown version and a taupe version, and each one is as fabulous as the last!

We especially love how well they work no matter what condition your feet are in. Do your feel swell in the summer sometimes? Same. We were delighted to see the multiple comments about how swelling isn’t a problem in these chic finds. One reviewer commented, ‘These shoes… OMG… The elastic gore on the sides in that single strap is genius!’

These shoes are casual enough to wear anywhere, pairing with a sundress, a romper or even jeans and a cami. On the other hand, they’re also nice enough to wear to more formal occasions! If we grab a pair to wear with a cocktail dress or a silky jumpsuit, we’ll be the belle of the ball!

With up to 37% off these top-rated Rockport shoes, we can only imagine that we’ll start seeing sizes dwindle in the blink of an eye. We don’t want to wait to long to nab a pair anyway — we want to put these into action ASAP! We have strangers to impress!
