I loved these Arche ‘Lydie’ wedges the first time I saw them, and I love them now even more that the price has been sliced by about half (they’re now $169). The pewter leather acccent makes the shoe, of course–the rest is standard fare Arche nubuck and the somewhat odd but not completely unattractive oversized rubber sole. I also love the stacked-heel look of the wedge; regretfully, at 2 1/2&amp;quot;, the heel height tends to push out of my comfort zone (which tops at about 2&amp;quot;). Still, a beautiful shoe which I find appropriate for just about any occasion. There is also a beautiful wedge boot (‘Loreto’, same metallic flower motif, see below) that merits attention, especially as it’s now about $100 off the original price.
