Chinese Laundry 'Vegas'
If you're after a throwaway buy for the Summer, you won't get a shoe that combines all the key looks for less than this one. Chinese Laundry's 'Vegas' sandal ($67.95) has a platform wedge (but not too chunky) and a metallic python-embossed leather and suede upper. It comes in various colourways, but the silver looks the best. A warning though; the covering on the wedge will get grubby very quickly so invest in a decent suede cleaner (and don't wear them in the rain).
