If you’re looking after a stylish, suitably vintage yet comfortable summer shoe, consider the wedge. The humble wedge first became fashionable in the late Thirties and has remained a go-to-style ever since. Here are five repro wedges perfect for summer.

1) Miss L Fire Tease wedge, £109.99 (pictured above)

This polka dot print wedge sandal also comes in red, blue or black. The ankle strap adds further sturdiness and the folded wedge heel looks superbly vintage.


2) Rocket Originals, Blue Suede Rita, £75

Based on a vintage wedge, the Rita has a brilliant three-tone design in blue, white and red. Its super soft leather makes this a very comfortable summer shoe.


3) Re-mix Capri, $180

This low wedge is particularly easy to walk in and come in two different colour combinations perfect for summer.
