I’ve been a huge fan of pediped for my children for years — but their latest line is for women and it’s called Brian James Footwear. They offer super cute flats, sandals, and wedge pumps. I’ll admit I am NOT good with heels, but wedges work for me. I fell in love with Brian James Footwear’s 2.5 Wedge Pump ($125) and have been wearing them non stop. The style I tried comes in three colors, Noir (black) Napa Leather,Charcoal Washed Leather, and Antique Brown Napa Leather. It’s an elevated ballet flat and perfect for gals like me with super flat feet. It works with pretty much anything — from a casual look with jeans and a cardi or a formal dress.
When I stepped into the pumps, I immediately felt that Ahhhh.. The insole is cushioned and my flat arches are totally supported. There is extra cushions in the insole. The one thing is that I have a bunion forming on my left foot, so I used a bandaid to cushion that area (it rubs on every single shoe I try, without fail).
The 2. 5 Wedge Pump Features:
• A cushioned insole with arch support
• Extra padding on both the ball and heel of foot
• Elasticized topline
• Leather lining
• 2.5” heel
• Includes dust bag
This style runs a little on the small side, so I recommend ordering a US half size up. I am a 9.5 now, so I ordered the 10 and it fit well. If you need an even higher wedge heel, this is also offered in a 3.5 inch size.
Thank you to Brian James Footwear for providing a sample.
