PERSONAL STYLE After my first pregnancy (OK, who am I kidding, during my first pregnancy), I swore that I would NEVER wear uncomfortable shoes again. So I don’t. My go-to’s are slip-on sneakers, ballerina flats, and wedges. I love my wedge boots, my wedge dress shoes (oh, one day I’ll show you all the fabulous colors and patterns!), and of course, my wedge sandals.  As much as I love my comfortable shoes, I really DON’T LIKE boring shoes. And since my staple outfit (when I’m out with the kids) is often my signature black T and jeans, I love adding an unexpected pop of color with my shoes, bags, and other accessories.  By now, you’ve figured out how much I love using pops of color both in my home and in my outfits. And you know how excited I am about these bright fun summer colors.  You also know I’m a big fan of bargains and deals, and that I love shopping on Amazon, so I scoured the site for the best wedge sandals in this season’s hottest colors, all under $75. So check out my top picks, and let me know what you think, and I hope this leads to a fun and successful shopping spree, and I hope you find some updates to your summer wardrobe that truly make you happy!  Betsey Johnson’s SB-Debie Pump Betsey has been rocking the fashion industry with her unique and original designs since the 1960s. Her ability to change with the times while keeping her designs pure has not gone unnoticed. I love her accessories, and it’s no surprise that this is the most “dressed up” shoe on the list. Rockport”s Briah Perf Sling Wedge Sandal Rockport started off over 50 years ago as a men’s dress shoe and sneaker company (do you have memories of your dad wearing these shoes? I sure do!). They have since expanded to women’s shoes, and offer versatile styles, still offering the same comfort as they always have, in contemporary styles and colors. Ecco Flowt Wedge Cork Sandal Ecco, a Danish brand, is unique to the shoe industry. They make leather at their own tanneries and produce shoes at their own factories, and pride themselves in treating all employees as family. These sandals, made of supersoft leather, are super duper comfortable (and come in a variety of colors). Franco Sarto Clemens Espadrille Wedge Sandal Franco Sarto is one of my absolute favorite shoe brands. I don’t think I’ve ever tried on a shoe I didn’t like, and I’ve been wearing them for a long long time. Even more, they are SUPER stylish and offer many timeless designs (not just sandals). This sandal comes in THIRTY different colors. It’s going to be hard to pick just one!  LifeStride’s Delta Wedge Sandal LifeStride pride themselves in the support they offer our arches and the ultra-flexible design of the outsole. They put all their shoes through rigorous testing, including pressure points, cushioning, and extensive quality control processes. You’ll be surprised how such a high heel can still be super comfortable.  Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole’s Gisele Cushioned Footbed Wedge Sandals Gentle Souls, a division of the Kenneth Cole brand, are trying to leave the smallest footprint possible at every stage of production. They pride themselves in their durable comfort technology, premium quality construction (I can vouch for that!), and their growing use of naturally renewable materials.  Journee Collection’s Comfort Sole Ankle Strap Wedges I love the mission of Journee Collection‘s brand: “to empower women by offering imaginative styles that ignite confidence.” They pride themselves in offering sizes that celebrate body positivity and self-love (at attainable prices), and they do all that and design super cute shoes!  Volatile’s Ablette Criss Cross Leather Sandal Wedge Volatile started in Southern California and quickly became a global brand, known for its super comfortable soles (we’re talking 5 layers of comfort).  They have since launched a kids line, so now we can share our styles (sneakers and slippers) with our mini-me’s. Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole’s Slip on Wedge Sandal I didn’t do this on purpose (I wasn’t even paying attention to the brands I was picking, just the shoe design, price, and reviews), but it so-doesn’t-surprise me that I picked 2 shoes from Gentle Souls. I really do love their shoes (check out the other options – their dress wedges are SUPER comfortable as well!  Crocs Women’s Brooklyn Low Wedge Sandal With almost 5000 5-star reviews, this is a super popular sandal. You might be familiar with the famous croc clogs. I like these much better. They still offer the same comfort, with so much more style!  Hmm… too much color for you? No worries!
