I don't know about you, but have spent years running around the Hamptons in ridiculously high heels that are not house party, Talkhouse, Surf Lodge friendly...in other words, i have let my love of height dictate not only comfort, but safety as well. There is nothing quite like getting a heel stuck in a wood slat and almost spraining an ankle...summer fun at its best. Well unlike many of you I have officially learned my lesson and will save my prized party shoes for the city. Now if you are cringing at the thought of being short and un-sexy, don't fret as this season's crop of crazy high wedges are truly fab!
The best by far, or at least the wedge at the top of my list is the Salamanca from yes, our wedge fav Christian Louboutin. At $495, we are talking a CL steal and at about 6-7 inches high, we are experiencing some insanely vertiginous height!!!! These shoes are pure sex and believe or not beyond easy to maneuver in... a combo rarely seen. They are still available in black, which would look so chic with your new playsuit. Of course, they would rock any little frock, skirt, shorts, etc that you feel inclined to work this summer, so they are absolutely worth the investment.
You can still find them at Barneys or on Net-A-Porter, so if you haven't found your perfect summer wedge yet, I promise you will treasure these. Of course, these are still almost silly high, so my advice is to keep your feet on the ground (no table dancing please) and to still pay attention to where you walk...stay safe, have fun and look oh so chic!!! Happy summer!!!
