Now that I’m officially a mommy, I’ve definitely changed my style to be a bit more functional and practical. Now, I opt for more flats so I can get around easier, even for spring and summer unless we are talking wedges. I love a good wedge because they are versatile- they function as a casual shoe and a dressier shoe. They pair with shorts, dresses, and everything in between and really help to elongate the legs. And best yet…they are comfortable and easy to walk in (even when carrying a baby!)
I received these Clemence cork wedge platform sandals in khaki green suede from a company called DUO. DUO is a British tailored footwear brand for women that love great design and customization. They have a wide array of boots, booties and other shoes available in 21 different calf sizes and 3 different widths and and the brand boasts a lasting quality and innovative personal service.
I sized up to a 10 Wide and they fit perfectly (although I think my feet are still a little swollen, and I’ve heard that your feet can go up in size after pregnancy. Crazy, right?!) Anyways, I love the crossover suede straps—they hold my feet in so I don’t have to worry about lifting my shoe off the ground like I would with a flip flop or similar shoe. There is also extra padding behind the buckle, which is huge because I often get blisters there. And although I haven’t left the house all that much with a now 2 week old to put these to the ultimate test, I have worn them around the house, moving around a LOT, and I must say, they are pretty comfortable- especially when carrying a baby. That’s the ultimate test, I’d say! Talk about a perfect spring wedge!
