As many of you know by now, in a cruel twist of fate I own a shoe boutique but I can barely wear heels. Even though I firmly believe everything looks better with them, I just can’t make it through the day in them. That’s why our best clients know our shelves are filled with what I call the demi-wedge. After years of erroneously thinking the best thing for my sore feet was a flat and following multiple podiatrists, chiropractors, foot injections, physical therapy, molded orthotics, acupuncture, and dry needling, I have learned that the only way for me to stand all day is to wear a demi-wedge. An added bonus is that they perfect for walking the brick streets of Old Town.
My personal go-to shoe is the Jolly by Butter with a hidden demi-wedge. Available in black or cognac, it has the season’s latest shape, the square toe, with a gold tip to make it dressy. Both pairs are in my closet and they can be worn day or night.
Another seasonal favorite of mine is a bootie by French Sole, available in grey or black. Below is a slideshow of just a few of our wide selection of great new demi-wedges. These just happen to all be wrapped, or hidden, demi-wedges!
Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
