This video is a review of Emese that I purchased from ShoeMint. She’s touted as a plain flatform wedge on the ShoeMint website with a hefty $79.98 price tag. The wedge height is 3.5″ made of genuine leather. There is a simple toe strap and adjustable ankle strap that is made of synthetic snakeskin leather. The straps are snakeskin print on these black on black pair. ShoeMint also offers the shoe in another color choice of snake with cognac colored straps. The bottom is rubberized for traction while walking.
I found the wedge to fit true-to-size, however the toe strap was a bit tight and narrow. If you are looking for a simple, plain jane wedge, then this shoe is for you. I think the shoe is a bit pricey for what you actually get compared to other platforms on the market. And from what I have read from other reviewers, I’m not alone in thinking this.
The “flat-form” as ShoeMint calls it, reminds me of platforms from the late ’90’s. Not much of an arch (great if you looking for a shoe based solely on comfort) and the platform height isn’t towering. Emese is extremely easy to walk in and can be worn for hours at at a time without hurting your feet or back. I can see wearing this wedge with Maxi dresses or casual weekend wear this spring and summer.
I will say that the quality from ShoeMint is outstanding, so these wedges will last through some wear and tear. So all in all, I suggest getting a pedicure and relaxing in warm weather with this wedge!
