Summer has arrived (at long last), and if you are anything like us, you’re probably questioning what shoes are the most appropriate to wear for a warm summer’s day stroll.
While sandals and trainers are comfortable, sometimes you just need something a little more elevated to complete an outfit.
For those who are looking for something a little more glamorous, without compromising on comfort, for your next garden party - heeled espadrilles.
The Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle are fans of the style, as they have previously attended royal engagements in a similar pair of closed toe heeled espadrilles with an ankle strap from Castañer.
There is one pair of shoes to have on your radar for those who want to get the royal look, but for less - it’s Marks and Spencer’s Wide Fit Wedge Heel Espadrilles.
Why we rate it
Marks and Spencer’s Wide Fit Wedge Heel Espadrilles are vegan and made from animal-free textiles.
The stylish design boasts closed toe detail, as well as an ankle strap, which has buckle fastening, and a heel height measuring 6.9cm.
It has been made to fit those with wide fit, and though it comes in a regular fit, those two designs have completely sold out.
What we love is they come in three different colourways; including black, denim and a neutral rose shade, so they will suit any outfit.
The design is available in shoe sizes 3 to 8, and also comes in half sizes too so you can get the perfect fit if you are in between sizes.
What the reviews say
The Wedge Heel Espadrilles have received over 300 reviews, with some customers hailing the wedges “reliable favourites”.
Here’s what other reviews say:
“Loved them so much I got every colour! These shoes not only look lovely but have plenty of room to wiggle my toes! I originally purchased the metallic colour to wear in the evenings on a cruise, but have now bought the red, black and navy pairs as well. The fit is consistent and they look equally as good with jeans as they do a summer dress. The price is also extremely reasonable.”
“Reliable favourites. Love them so much that I have bought them in navy and also black.”
“Very pleased with these shoes as they are extremely comfortable with the wider fit and ideal for summer holidays.”
“Bought these on a whim and have worn them many times already. Comfortable to walk in as well as looking good. Really good value for a shoe that I hope will last a long time!!”
“These are amazing! So comfortable you barely know you have them on! Super comfortable, even on red hot days. Felt like I was wearing slippers all day! So impressed, I have bought them in every colour and also spare pairs in the colours I will wear the most, in case I wear them out.”
