It ain’t easy bein’ small. At 5’2″, I’m always looking at shoes that’ll boost my height without giving me blisters, so one of my favourite summer shoe is the wedge heel. Imagine my delight when I copped myself a pair of Kork-Ease Ava wedges late last week. They’re not only the perfect stylin’ sandal for summer but also give me a much-needed 3 ¼” boost.
Kork-Ease have been a tried and true Brooklyn staple since 1953. The company crafts quality shoes from real materials, like buttery-soft leather and suede, and they never miss a beat with their clean, classic style.
The Ava wedge comes in three colorways: black, dark brown, and natural (or tan). They feature a criss-cross design around the toes, and sturdy buckle closure just under the ankle. The cushioned leather foot-bed is ultra comfy, while the rubber sole offers non-slip grip. Meanwhile, the wedge heel is offered in either Vachetta or cork leather.
Kork-Ease also makes a similar, lower version called the Myrna, which features just a 1 ¾” heel.
The Ava retails for $135 and the Myrna sells for $125.
