Summer Wedges are THE must have shoes for 2012. This guide to the best buys online features something for everyone. Wedges are the perfect choice in summer footwear, they can be worn with sun dresses, shorts and even jeans. I’ve been all around the web to find the hottest styles available to buy online for Summer 2012.
Browsing around the virtual high street I noticed a trend for really huge wedges, I’m not sure who would look good wearing something so bulky on their feet. Just because it’s fashionable doesn’t mean you should! I was really impressed with the range of Summer Wedges available at Boden Online, their is something within the range for everyone and all the styles are really wearable. These glossy, patent leather slingbacks were probably my favourite and not just because of the delicious raspberry pink colour. Whilst the cork heel is certainly high it isn’t too bulky so they look really flattering. Available in a choice of colours including Purple Grape. Price Was £99.00. Sale Price £64.35.
Another winner from Boden are these Essential Wedges. Once again they are available in a variety of colours including, Neutral, Navy and Red. Personally I’m loving them in Mocha Brown as pictured here. They are perfect if your looking for a style for every day wear. They are quite a smart design with a closed toe. Whilst the cork heel gives them a summery feel the colour won’t look out of place through out the seasons. They feature a genuine suede upper though the lining and insock are made from leather ensuring they are nice and breathable in hot weather. Priced at £89.00 they are quite expensive but due to the versatile design they are worth every penny.
If your shopping on a budget and looking for cheap wedges I recommend checking out the extensive range at Boohoo.com. They have literally hundreds of designs to choose from. Many of them are really fashionable including cutaway designs but some of them will stand the test of time, such as these gorgeous tan shoes. The peep toe design on these tan summer wedges is totally on trend and the corsage on the front makes them stand out from the crowd. Priced at just £22.00 they are my best buy for under £25.00.
It’s been a couple of years since Faith Shoes disappeared from our high street but these popular brand is available to buy through Debenhams online. I’m loving these Silver sequin strap mules. I recommend Silver for the summer months as it is a great neutral colour that will go with anything. The cork style heel isn’t as high as some other designs which means they should be relatively comfortable and easy to walk in. Currently in the Debenhams Sale these wedges are my best buy for under £20.00. Price £18.75.
The high street is full of Red, White and Blue for 2012 and these Navy Summer Wedges are the perfect sandals for wearing with the patriotic colours. The design is really simple they feature a strappy textile upper and the wedge heel is covered in canvas and trimmed with a pretty raffia, rope effect, trim. The heel height is 4″ which is quite high but if you have trouble walking in 4″ heels don’t forget that wedges are far easier for walking in than a thin heel. Priced at £32.00 they could become your summer wardrobe staple.
Summer is a great time to experiment with colours that you may not wear through out the Winter months. Ice Cream and Candy shades are big news for 2012. If your a bit of a shoe addict and already own a wardrobe full of Wedge Sandals but you want something new to add to the collection, take a look at these Bertie Craylo, Peep toe, wedge shoes. Whilst they are available in neutral Tan I’m more interested in this gorgeous shade of Green and the lovely shade of Yellow. These are quite a smart design made from genuine leather they resemble a classic court shoe with a raffia wedge heel. The 9cm heel is quite high the small platform on the front of the shoes will add to the comfort. Price £85.00.
If your looking for a pair of Summer Wedges that will go with everything in your wardrobe take a look at these Beige Patent Slingbacks from Jones The Bootmakers. The Kork design has been popular at Jones for a few Summers now and this year it comes with a patent leather finish. Beige sandals can be tough to keep clean especially in a dry and dusty summer but patent leather is much easier to keep clean as the dust won’t stick in the same way it does to grained leather. Price £55.00.
Red Wedges are a great choice for Summer, you can wear them with, Black, White, Navy and many other colours that you’ll find in your wardrobe. The strappy design on these is very elegant. They are made from Suede with a leather lining and sock. The red suede trim across the wedge heel and through to the low platform is a nice touch and breaks up the cork heel. Price £79.00.

TOP TIPS FOR BUYING & WEARING SUMMER WEDGES
If you can afford to pay a little bit more it’s well worth investing in genuine leather wedges. In the summer months your feet will get hot and leather will help your feet to breath and keep them a little bit cooler and certainly fresher.
Don’t forget to pain your toe nails. Many of the most popular Wedge styles for 2012 are either sandal designs or feature a Peep Toe. If your wearing an eye catching pair of shoes then attention is going to be drawn to your feet, so make sure they look pretty.
Wearing a higher heel is more flattering than wearing low heels. If you struggle wearing heels on a day to day basis don’t be afraid to try a pair of Summer Wedges that have a heel a little higher than you will normally wear as wedges give your feet more stability than regular high heels, so you’ll find them easier to walk in.
If you really really struggle wearing heels try choosing a pair of wedges with a platform sole as this will reduce the angle of your feet and you’ll find them easier to walk in.
If your only going to buy one pair of summer wedges to wear all season long think about the colours in your wardrobe. If you favour earth tones it makes sense to choose a pair in brown, beige, tan or maybe green. If your a fan of navy then think about Navy, White and Red. Silver and other metallic shades do however makes a great neutral colour that will co-ordinate with most colours.
