Footwear Expo 2009: Wedges

So, yeah, Footwear Expo‘s going on, and will be open until December 6th, so if you haven’t been, you’ve still got a few days.  The Expo benefits Toys for Tots, an organization that provides Christmas gifts to poor kids.

There are over 50 designers in the expo, so a comprehensive list, or even series of lists, would be a daunting task.  However, I’d like to show you a sampling, arranged by style. We’ll start with the wedge heel.

I tend to think of a wedge heel as a bit quirky and playful, and these four shoes each show a unique personality.  The R2s are definitely work appropriate, while the Periquitas strike me as perfect for the lunching fashionista.  House of Curios brings us a beachy girl-next-door style, and Hays Uriza gives the moody goth girl a chunky wedge.  I love that the shape and thickness of the wedges are different, as do the materials of the shoes, from simple canvas to patent leather.

Note: The Periquitas and the House of Curios styles are both color-changable — by HUD and by clicking on the shoe, respectively.
