Today is all about wedges. It's taken years for me to get on board with wearing heels or anything that gives me added height, but sod it. The other week I had the great joy of attending the launch of Upper Street's 9/10 club, for women with size 9 and 10 feet and it was brilliant (join! It's free and you get stuff!).

|Poetic Choice Bow Tied, £69.99 (sizes 3.5 to 9)|
My first pair were a gorgeous set of coral peeptoe slingbacks from New Look. I'm a big fan of New Look wedges; they're cheap so you can wreck them over a summer without crying, and always very cheerful. I love a peeptoe too - I don't like my feet feeling squashed, and this way you can show off some nice polish. This pair are quite similar for summer:
|New Look coral wide fit espadrille sandal, £19.99 (sizes 3 to 9)|
|Evans green high espadrille wedges, £35 (sizes 4 to 10 extra wide)|
|Franco Sarto red Olympia, £95 (sizes 8, 9, 11 remaining)|
I really absolutely love these red wedges from Long Tall Sally! Lovely buttery leather and that swish back almost - almost - makes them worth £95. Snap up the last few pairs in size 8, 9 and 11, and you can get them in black in 8 and 11 only.
|Clarks Scent Flower Red Combi Sandal, £44.99 (sizes 3 to 9)|
|Aldo Hazinski wedge, £65 ( sizes 3 to 9.5)|
If you're not in the mood for a massive wedge (and admittedly, doorways do pose a slight challenge) then try a mini wedge. For anyone used to massacring their feet with ballet flats, the added heel support will feel like you're walking on clouds.
|Evans black peeptoe shoes, £35 (sizes 4 wide to 10 extra wide)|
|Long Tall Sally striped closed toe espadrille, £50 (sizes 7 to 11)|
|Next Low rope wedges, £26 (sizes 3 to 9)|
|Clarks Shimmer Mist Black Patent Sandal, £49.99 (sizes 3 to 9)|
