Michael Kors Leather Espadrille Wedge Sandals: Loosen Up and Tie the Knot

These wedges bring to mind Louboutin’s tromp l’oeil ribbon espadrilles in red, but I’m actually loving Michael Kors’ take even more: “tie me up, tie me down” straps around the ankles are always a crowd-pleaser in my book. And as much as I can appreciate Pop-Art effects, I like the fact that these have real topstitching, making for a summer-appropriate, organic feel.

I can’t help but think how hot these are going to look with my new tan (thanks to the Mexican sun, I am now very, very tan). Normally, I’d turn right to another shoe at the mere thought of a 5.5” heel, but with that wedge and platform, these are honestly easy-walkers. Also, the straps are designed so they are wide at toes, which relieve cramping and offer support.

I might grin and bear it during the more rigid autumn season, but no pain for me in the summer! This is the time to relax and revel in happy feet. I always do, but when the mood is loose, I don’t mess with painful shoes. On Net-a-Porter for $995.

Pair with: I love a bright tote with a neutral espadrille. I’ll take Bottega Veneta’s bright-orange leather and snakeskin tote with these, please! Bottega Veneta Leather and Snakeskin Tote, $3,880.
