THE WEDGE OF THE SUMMER

Whoever invented the wedge (according to Wiki, an Ancient Greek) was a wonderful, wonderful person.

Except on good old-fashioned English cobbles and other uneven surfaces, a wedge will comfortably elevate you through all seasons.

From knee-high lace-up wedge boots (my man’s favourite on me because they look hot, and I don’t whinge about foot pain), to those Ascot/barbeque/pub-garden summer sandals, this is by far my favourite heel type.

I only recently discovered the Italian shoe-maker Massimo Lonardo, and unfortunately there is very little information about him on the web. All I can glean is that he makes beautiful wedges in a factory in Massa, Tuscany (Italy).

These intricate and well-made creations are perfect for the warmer months to come.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In an Eastern antique-look silk with leather lining, you could pick out one or more of the colours from the fabric for your outfit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one reminds me of delicately hand-painted porcelain. Perfect with that white shift-dress, or even as your something blue…

This style comes in three colourways: all with unusual embroidery on the wedge which is sort of haphazard but it works.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The red is my favourite, but the brown would look great for more of a relaxed, 70s vibe.

Which is your favourite Lonardo style?
