​How to Wear the Year’s Biggest Trend: Wonders C-33114

May 22nd 2019

Lift your spirits in a classic throwback shoe.

The resurgence of the platform shoe has taken fashion by storm over the past few years, cementing itself as a key footwear model to keep on repeat in one’s style playlist. Born in the ‘70s and taking over the ‘90s, the shoe has survived intergenerational popularity for its cult status and timeless comfort. Designers have repeatedly returned the retro look to the runways in a variety of different guises for any season, from sneakers to sandals and everything in between. These modern renditions of the perennial trend are putting a spin on the shape through hybridization. Classic silhouettes are being elevated with chunky soles and double-stacked bases for a contemporary mash-up that stays true to the core aesthetic while adding something fresh in the process. Imbued with the sophistication of Spanish style rules, Wonders has given us a fresh take on the platform shoe for travel, every day, and beyond. New for Spring/Summer 2019, the C-33114 is a game-changing wedge loafer that brings together mature refinement and playfulness to give your wardrobe rotation the sartorial serotonin it needs.

Inspired by a menswear loafer, the C-33114 is a sleek silhouette detailed with contemporary brogue detailing across the vamp and lateral sides. It arrives in two classic colors, both for $195: nude and black. The patent leather upper features a reinforced heel for durability and a notched throat for easy slip-on wear. Smooth leather lining and a signature memory gel footbed line the interior, creating a cushy interior environment for all-day wear. Set on a rocker sole, the lightweight synthetic platform flaunts deep grooves that provide natural, full-length flexion. It expands into a chunky wedge offering additional support and stability.

The C-33114 loafer is the perfect style to refresh your shoe collection. Its versatility makes it a hot ticket for any look, from your corporate dress code to your weekend closet. We love the black option for work. Smash the glass ceiling with a pleated midi skirt, a long cardigan, and a long-sleeved blouse with an oversized bow. Go the unexpected route by playing around with patterns. A printed silk dress shirt under a plaid pantsuit cinched with a high-shine belt. The entire boardroom will appreciate your clever experimentation. Get ready to wind down at happy hour when you’re off-duty. Keep the blazer from the suit in tow, and slip into a sleeveless shift dress for a more laid-back look that is uncompromising and still professional. The nude version is your Saturday night hero. A mini skirt, short-sleeved poplin top, and a denim jacket make a cool, feminine statement for an impromptu get-together.
