This summer’s ‘it’ shoe is here. So don’t even try and go barefoot…
The French fashion house, Chloé, has introduced us to the latest in high fashion (and literally height-defying) footwear. The platform, espadrille wedge meshes the hottest trends of the season. With espadrille footwear and platforms heels in high demand, this shoe blends the styles for an extremely versatile look.
The Chloé suede and calfskin espadrille combine in their neutral tones, allowing you to pair this wedge with even your most colorful summer brights. The wide vamp strap and brass buckled ankle strap ‘revamp’ the classic closed toe sandal. The added height and bronze color scheme will redefine those calves and make sure that summer tan glows from tip to toe.
What’s the cost of this platform peep toe? We say fashion is priceless. If you really want to know, though, it takes a pretty penny to be this fashionable. The Chloé wedge retails for $625 at various stores online, including Neiman Marcus. Let us know if you have an extra coupon.
Apart from the classic suede, the wedge comes in a variety of different styles. The Isa Espadrille Sandal in denim has a suede ‘coffee’ colored ankle strap, while its wide vamp strap displays a viciously frayed blue denim. As the sandal seemingly makes denim footwear fashion forward, we are tempted to pair this shoe with an angelic white sundress…or perhaps complete the ultimate Canadian tuxedo. The choice is yours.
Also spotted for a limited time are the Isa Leather Espadrille Wedges by Chloé. This pair features a dark-brown leather laser cut into a floral designs. The lighter leather ankle strap and scalloped vamp strap combine for a unique take on the classic suede design. The hard-to-find pair can spruce up any casual outfit, instantly making it a more formal affair.
Break open that piggy bank or start saving up. This summer’s shoe you can’t afford to miss.
