I finally deduced to get a pair of wedge espadrilles. These had mixed reviews, and when something does, I have to try it out for myself and judge it myself.
I have to admit that the back of the wedge was not made so well. For them to be comfortable and not feel like my heel would slip out, I had readjust the ties and and lope them from the side of the heel out (makes sense?). Definitely a lot more comfortable and the heel doesn't feel like it is going to slip out.
Also, I'm wondering if they just started making these in half sizes too?! I read a ton of reviews on these and everyone made it sound like they come only in full sizes (I got mine from Shopbop and they did only half full sizes, whereas Nordstrom carries half sizes). Anyway, I decided to go down half a size and they fit great.Dress: J.Crew - take 25% off w/code HOPTOIT, also loving this one and this one / Cardigan: J.Crew - select colors on major sale, recently got this one - on sale! + extra % off / Soludos Espadrilles - also loving these / Pom tote - (added poms myself) - similar, need this one
