Wonderful Wedges


I find that with the extra stability of a thick heel along with a platform under my toes to minimizes the actual height of the heel, wedges work great for chasing (and catching) my daughter!
As a fashion obsessed mother I am always kept on my toes…quite literally!  My daughter is at the stage where she thinks it's funny to run away from me….and boy is she ever fast!
When I was pregnant I thought that I was going to have to make a lot of style sacrifices as soon as I gave birth (yes starting at the hospital!)…thank goodness I was wrong!  Instead of making sacrifices I've only made compromises.  I thought I was going to have to say good-bye to my heels, but instead I said "bring on the cute wedge shoes!!"

When I purchase my wedge shoes there are a few things I look for:
Ankle stability- Any strap to hold my foot in will do!
Comfort: I try them on and take a few laps…or practice chasing Vyla..haha!
Heel width: The thicker the heel the more stable the shoe.
Heel incline: I measure the heel by subtracting the platform height from the heel height, meaning a 4" heel with a 1" platform is really only a 3" incline. I like mine to be about 3" or lower.

If you could only live in one style of shoes what would you choose?
