Have you heard that the Kate Spade Halle Wedge is all the rage for Washington’s political ladies? If it was a well-kept secret, the New York Times recently blew the top off that, announcing that this is the “it” shoe for working women.
But let’s be honest, it’s not just women in general that are in need of this particular shoe or shoe style. We all know that women, as a species, are willing to squeeze into any type of flattering shoe, pain be damned. But mothers? Well we have different priorities and concerns, making a sky-high stiletto simply laughable.
Here are the four reasons why working moms need the Kate Spade Halle, plus where to get it on sale:
1. The three-inch heel is fashionable yet manageable for women who don’t have the luxury of kicking up their feet at 5 p.m. Once the work day ends, “mom” time begins — which can extend well into the wee hours of the morning. Anything over 3 inches will cause some serious aches.
2. The wedge design makes for optimal comfort, so even if you have an after-work parent/teacher conference or PTA meeting, you won’t be crying by 8 p.m. Don’t believe us? All of Washington agrees.
3. They look fashionable and flattering along with the comfort, which, really, is incredibly rare. I’m a firm believer that although mothers have to sacrifice a lot — like our time, sleep, sometimes our figures — we should never sacrifice our style.
4. They’re on sale at Bergdorf Goodman for $134 instead of the regular $298. But you better hurry — this is a hot, hot shoe right now. And moms? You deserve it.
