The big return of rope wedge sandals:

Wedge sandals, which first appeared in the 1930s, have evolved over the decades to become a staple of women's fashion. Their popularity exploded in the 70s with the disco movement, before reinventing themselves in the 2000s with more refined and sophisticated designs, worthy of the iconic duo of the time: Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton. Today, they are back in force for the Spring-Summer 2024 season, notably in the form of rope wedge sandals, a perfect choice for casual but elegant summer looks.

Rope wedge sandals are the ultimate trend this season. Their charm lies in their simplicity and their ability to add a bohemian touch to any outfit.

How to select the perfect wedge sandals for this summer?

Before you start purchasing your new wedge sandals, here are some tips to help you choose them and wear them with both style and comfort all season long. Whether you are new to this or have been using it for a long time, these tips will guarantee you perfectly successful summer looks.
  • Choose the right height

For everyday wear, opt for mid-height wedge sandals. They provide the comfort needed to be worn all day. For special occasions, do not hesitate to choose taller designs, up to 12 cm, for a glamorous effect. At Vanessa Wu, the rope wedge sandals feature a 10cm heel height with a 3cm platform, balancing the height for optimal comfort.

  • Focus on colors and details

Summer is the season of bright colors and vibrant patterns. Choose wedge sandals in metallic tones like gold or silver. For example, the Nadine wedge sandals with gold or silver braiding add a touch of sparkle to your looks with their fringed braided effect. Details like embroidery, prints or laces can also be added for a touch of originality to your outfit. Vanessa Wu offers a variety of styles, including the Honorine wedge sandals in printed jacquard fabric, available in black, pink, camel or green, perfect for adding a unique touch to your wardrobe. Don't forget the colorful wedges, a summer essential that adds a vibrant and elegant touch to your outfits. The Céline wedge sandals, with their variations in blue, black, orange and khaki green, perfectly embody this trend. These knotted sandals add a chic note to every step, ideal for any summer occasion.

  • Comfort and quality first

Comfort is essential, especially during summer. Opt for quality materials and make sure the sandals provide good arch support. Rope soles are ideal for absorbing shock and ensuring a smooth walk. Rope wedge sandals therefore fulfill these criteria perfectly, offering both durability and comfort at the same time. At Vanessa Wu, comfort is a top priority. Each pair is designed to provide optimal support while looking stylish, ensuring you can wear them all day without discomfort.
