Orange and white wedges at AX Paris
Something about the colour and styling of these shoes really reminds me of an ice lolly, and whether or not this image resonates with you, you can't deny that they are super summery! The cute little cut-out sides, the slender straps and the cheery shades all combine to make something that you'll want to step into on a sunny day.
You may well have also noticed that these shoes have more than a bit of the Jeffrey Campbell about them: that monster wedge and the bold selection of colours is very much in keeping with JC's style, and this is true of many of the styles we've seen at AX Paris. The main noticeable difference is the price: this style is just £34.99 here: not bad at all for such a statement-making pair of shoes.
Wedges and platforms are going to be absolutely everywhere as we head into summer, so even if you're not normally a fan you might want to start practicing your best 'wedge walk' now - you never know quite when the trend might get through to you! I'm still weighing up whether or not to embrace the flatform look, but fortunately it looks like the uninspiring weather forecast has condemned us all to tights and enclosed boots and shoes for a little bit longer...
