rope-wedges.jpgWe're loving the subtle use of rope on shoes at the moment (take heed, Topshop!) and these neat wedges from French Connection have really captured our imagination this week. Cage-style straps are still very much in vogue (particularly when made from this variety of smooth, slimline leather) and the filled in black wedges balance out the built-up styling nicely.

The raffia rope soles give just a little laid back summer attitude to these otherwise urban heels, so you won't look too slouchy when you're wearing them.They'd look great with an all-black outfit, but would not look out of place if you prefer to wear colour.
