Shoes for the Tess Harding

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Cynthia Rowley - Runway Wedge (Brown)   Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, this wedge from the Cynthia Rowley with its deep, subdued brown color and rich leather, it brings to the mind of the Manolo the sort of shoe worn by the Katherine Hepburn in the 1940s; handsome, strong, and yet still feminine and very alluring.

This, it could be worn with the retro wide-leg trousers and the short jacket to great effect.

    Yummmm.

    Am I the only one who finds the wedges less comfortable to walk in than a heel of similar height?




  4. VeddyVeddyBadAng Says:

    According to one reviewer: “if you have a foot that’s a bit wide and a high arch, these won’t fit.” Oh, it FIGURES. Me and my inconvenient wide feets.

    I’m a guy so I don’t really pay attention to women’s fashion unless it’s something my girlfriend is wearing.But I stumbled across this website by chance and I’ve got to say though that this is a really great blog and that these shoes look beautiful.I love the old Hollywood style and I am totally buying these shoes for my girl.Good looking out Manolo

    The Capitan feels that these are all too similar to the little brown plastic shoeses that he attached to the Apes Of The Planet figures when he was the small boy.

    No, you’re not. I spent this morning in a pair of the cutest-ever Calderone wedge slides, also with a 3.5 inch heel, and by the time I got back from the party I’d gone to (which involved walking a block each way from the subway, and sitting on the train) I was hobbling and sobbing. After much soaking in Epsom salts and an afternoon spent in comfy supportive New Balances, I’m still not completely comfortable.

    Why is this? I love these little wedges (both the wedges of the Manolo and my own Wedges Of Pain) but I will have to pass on them, and pass them on, if there isn’t a solution.

    Manolo, i’ve been rather confused about this so i have to ask: who is Tess Harding?
