Shoe of the Day | Maker's Winny 4 Wedge


You can't go wrong with a cool wedge for summer, especially one with a pop of color against a neutral tone to perfectly compliment your casual chic summer looks. Today we highlight a brand we haven't covered before and you know how we love celebrating new brands, so here goes. We love the bright aqua accent on the toe strap (as well as the front of the sole) and snake printed upper of the Maker's Winny 4 Wedge. If you're vegan, there's no need to worry as this entire shoe is made from man made materials. Besides the bold accent color, our eye can't help but be down to the cork trim and and 5 1/2 inch wedge. Last but not least is a cork trim and snake print that make up the platform and heel; and what a heel it is at 5 1/2" with its 1 1/2" platform. For those who want a more earthy hue, the Winny 4 also comes in peach/chocolate. Both colors are available for a steal of $54.99 at heels.com.
