Our Favorite Wedge Sandals For 2014 Are Both Chic and Casual

When it comes to springtime footwear, we're faced with deciding between the two "Cs": chic and casual. The former includes those high-heeled, strappy sandals that induce envy from all your colleagues in the office. Striding down the halls with these shoes imparts confidence, sexuality and power, making you feel like you can face all adversities that come your way. But at the end of the day, after the grind, your feet may not fair so well.

This leads us to the latter half of the double "C" conundrum—shoes of substance that may be lacking in the style department, but don’t produce calluses or blisters. Flip-flops, Birkenstocks and Crocs, however unsightly, are the most painless and practical footwear you can slip into.

If you think a choice has to be made, think again. Rather than making a decision, opt for footwear that blends the best aspects of both worlds. Wedge sandals are the time-tested, feet-happy solution that work just as well for a professional environment as they do for a beach-bound vacation. This spring 2014 season, brands like Robert Clergerie, Marni and Jimmy Choo have shown us the chicest options on the market.
