More Wedges!

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, the Manolo continues to be obsessed with the wedges. Here are yet two more from the Cynthia Rowley.
The Trader from Cynthia Rowley     Manolo Likes!  Click! The Theron by Cynthia Rowley   Manolo Likes!  Click!
On the left is the Trader which has the tweed covered wedge heel and the most attractive suede uppers. On the right is the Theron which has the wonderfully odd painted cork heels. Are they both not indeed super fantastic?

  1. Dave Says:

    The Manolo is always correct in the assessment of the matters of fashion – until now. Wedges are as unattractive as the word itself. “Wedge”. “Wedge”. Say it out loud. It is clumpy, thick and stodgy. No matter how fine the uppers, the wedge soles – like the word itself – are completely lacking in delicacy, finesse, or beauty. Down with the clumpy clogs I say!




  2. Shoefabulous Says:

    I disagree with the Dave. I am in love with the wedges the Manolo revealed today! They have been a hit in South America for years now, and it’s about time that the wedge hit main stream American fashion. Great picks Manolo!




  3. megaera Says:

    OK, I must ask something of my more informed internet friends: how does one walk in these wedges without massive knee pain? Am I alone in experiencing this? Is there some technique?




  4. la petite chou chou Says:

    To be honest, I’ve never set foot in a wedge…




  5. furlagirl Says:

    I wore wedges all last summer, I found them the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. They give you a far more stable platform than heels. Love ’em.




  6. Sarah-Jean Says:

    I love them both! I prefer the ones on the left because of the ankle strap. I think it makes your ankles look smaller…




  7. Phyllis Says:

    Keep ’em coming Manolo! Now that we have been educuated in wedge couture, I think a clearly defining feature of the good ones is a little cut-out on the bottom instead of just a flat sole. Interesting materials on the wedge also seems to make a difference.




  8. Bag Slut Says:

    You’ve done what I thought impossible, even for The Manolo: Look at wedges (most of which or fugNASTY), and imagine working my feet in some.




  9. renee Says:

    i love wedges, they should always be in fashion they look hot too,

    and i think that every shoe is much easier to walk in than those normal strappy heels – my huge feet always slip to one side, making me look like a very wobbly freak
