This year is shaping up to be rather Europe-centric for me, involving lots of walking on cobblestone streets and taking trains and buses. I started looking for something comfortable, practical, and more stylish than sneakers.
I chanced upon the Wedgetarian Lexi by Merrell, one of my favorite comfort shoe brands. I ordered a pair in grey via Zappos VIP:
They met my expectations and are super comfy, the grippy sole provides excellent tread, which bodes well for rainy / wintry streets. I’m confident that they won’t need breaking in! And though the wedge looks high, I can hardly feel that my feet are elevated.
But…. the downside is that this “rhinoceros” grey really stands out, and looks too stark against my usual palette of dark clothing in general. Oh, and these wouldn’t make good ‘airport’ shoes, since it takes time to lace & unlace them.
I’ve just ordered the ‘Dark Earth’ brown version, and most likely will return these. Stay tuned for updates!
