You know it’s going to be a long day when your heels are uncomfortable to wear even before you walk out the front door.  The wedge can be a surprisingly comfortable alternative to a heel.   Wedges are a smart way to dress up a springtime look, while saving your feet from a lot of torture.

As all the wedge-y sandals march their way onto the store shelves this spring, grab a pair that are versatile.  Brown and cream are great choices which will work with most outfits.  If you are new to getting a lift from these kind of heels, start with a staple.  A simple espadrille that will go with a sundress, or a black wedge with an open toe.
