Chinese Laundry Shooter Suede Wedges
Wedges are such a great shoe to have on hand at all times. But, wedges are particularly useful during the summer when walking on grass and other less stable natural surfaces is more common. I learned the hard way over the weekend that heels and grass do not mix well. I wished I had gone wedges and, if you have a picnic or outdoor cocktail party in your future, you'll be wishing for wedges too.

These affordable Chinese Laundry Shooter Suede Wedges are perfect for summer get-togethers. The 3.5" suede-wrapped wedge heel, with .5" platform, is a manageable height. The Taupe Suede color pictured here is a great warm-weather neutral that will pair with both warm and cool shades (it's also available in Black Suede, for those of you who can't tear yourself away from black). The rubber-like synthetic sole will give you some grip as you walk around, while the 100% suede upper still gives off a luxe look. The most summer-perfect part is the price -- since you won't be dropping a paycheck on these shoes, you won't feel like throwing up when your friend's neighbor spills red wine on them at your next weekend party.
