26 Wedge Sandals That Aren’t Cheugy—Promise

With summer in full swing, there’s no better time than now to lean into the many sandal trends making the rounds this season. While I’ve personally been incorporating all of them into my wardrobe, from flats and flatforms to those with a tiny heel (because let’s be real, I’m still easing into wearing actual shoes again), there’s another trend I’m loving that’s arguably way easier to walk in than the classic stiletto: wedge sandals. Now, I’m not talking about espadrilles. (Though, I’ll admit, along with Meghan Markle, I’m a fan of those too.) I’m referring to today’s modern iterations of wedges, which range from sleek mules and chunky ’90s throwbacks to more sculptural silhouettes. In short, I’m obsessed, and my feet are definitely grateful for the extra stability, especially now that I’m leaving my house for more than just a grocery run. Ahead, I’ve rounded up 28 of the best wedge sandals this summer has to offer—and I promise they aren’t cheugy in the least.
