Can’t stand wearing heels but love the way your legs look in them? We can pretty much all relate. Sadly, there really isn’t another option — besides standing on our tippy toes — and that’s just uncomfortable and weird.
There are wedges, of course. They’re often easier to walk in, but the problem is that most of them aren’t constructed and shaped to anatomically support the foot in its raised position. We’re used to having our feet flat on the ground, so when we’re giving our heel a boost, we need the right type of support to make up for that literal lost ground. That’s why we love these cushioned wedges from Rockport!
Rockport is easily a go-to brand when it comes to shoes that make both comfort and cuteness top priorities. These wedges are definitely favorites of ours for dressing up a casual summer outfit. They’re made with high-quality materials as you can see by the leather upper. This upper takes things up another notch though with its perforations. You’ll see there are both diamond shapes and small circular holes, offering both breathability and a very cute design!
This shoe also has an open toe and multiple side cutouts, as well as an exposed heel. Don’t worry though — your feet aren’t going to come sliding out of your pair. There’s a super easy hook-and-loop strap that wraps around the back of the heel to get you the perfect, secure fit every time!
On the interior side of the upper you’ll find soft linings, and down at the footbed you’ll find some glorious cushioning. You can even see it online — peep the heel area! This is definitely the type of shoe you need if you don’t want to be rubbing at your feet all day long and running to the bathroom just to take them off for a moment of relief. By running, we mean walking, of course. It’s dangerous to run in heels and wedges!
These Briah shoes have a cork-wrapped wedge above the textured outsole, measuring in at 2 ½ inches high at the heel. It’s a great boost that will make you look taller and leaner without shooting you all the way up to the sky or sending you stumbling down to the ground!
These shoes are available in five colors right now at Zappos: Black, Navy, Taupe, White and Metallic Khaki, which is a glittery delight. They’re all on sale, but three out of five pairs are even over $30 off, so grab your favorite before it’s gone!
