We can spot it on the bags from a mile away, but Bottega Veneta‘s iconic intrecciato on the wedge of a platform? And magnified over studs in a gorgeous shade of putty-gray, to boot! With a 1.5″ incline to the sole of these surprisingly sleek flatforms, these are more comfortable than actual flats. I walk everywhere in Asia each summer and my shoes usually turn a shade of cement gray not unlike this (I also usually end up with aching soles, but that’s a lesser issue). I am designating these wedge sandals as my new walking shoes – and I won’t even have to worry about them getting dirty! On Net-a-Porter for $840.
Pair with: Stella McCartney’s light sage-green canvas bucket bag might not last far past the summer, but in the meantime, appreciate the roomy size and light weight on long days traipsing around town. On Net-a-Porter for $1,395.
