skechers-cali.jpgSkechers make some of the easiest shoes to wear in the heat, and their wedgie styles are fantastic for those who feel their legs are too stumpy to look good in flipflops. I'm a huge fan of the 'Cali' range - shoes so light you can slip them on and off and carry them away in your handbag - which not only work well in the heat, they really flatter the calves, too.

A playful variant on the style is this 'Flirty Rose Tattoo' shoe, which has a colourful design scrawled all over the wedge. I'm not quite so sold on the toe strap, which looks like it could be uncomfortable, but when you consider that these are essentially fliplops on steroids, it's not actually a bad deal.
