esko cork wedges.jpgThe chunkiness of these sandals won't be to everybody's taste, but I tend to go for cork wedges that are almost big enough to serve as pinboards, and these certainly meet that criteria!

While the angle of the wedge looks like it would result in some seriously flattering leg-lift, the slatted T-bar is a fun, classic shape. And check out the wonderful sheen on that leather: It's unusual to see a natural tone in patent, and it makes a lovely contrast against the matte finish of the cork. £162.25 at Forzieri
