Eric Michael's "Elena" espadrille sandals are available in black, steel or gold for $99.50 at Youlookfab featured these chic shoes as a stylish yet comfortable shoe option for summer that will give you a little height, without the pain!


These Chaps "Dawna" espadrilles are a great look for less, on sale for just $23.99 at I bought these in red and they are really comfortable! Wore them for over 8 hours during a recent trip to NYC. The elastic straps keep your feet securely in place while the low wedge is just high enough to give you some height without making them tough to walk in. Certainly not the sexiest wedge in my closet but I think they look cute in a preppy sort of way paired with shorts or cargos and a simple tank or tee.
