​The Return of the Wedge: Hirica Lea

​The Return of the Wedge: Hirica Lea

Mar 26th 2019

Yes, she’s back, but not like you’ve seen her before!

The comfy-shoe movement—ushered in by the return of the two-strap sandal, the dad sneaker, and the kitten heel—has shown no sign of abating. The latest crop of New York Fashion Week footwear was destined to become even more comfortable for the warm months. From the flat gladiator sandals of the early 2000s to the mules of yesteryear, the runways are dominated by laidback silhouettes that are both a statement of personal style and a testament to our craving for arch-friendly footwear. One style coming back in a big way is the wedge. Love it or hate it, this shoe is a must-have for its comfort sensibilities and fashion-forward reimaginations. What sets this renaissance apart from the outdated pairs shoved in the back of your closet and forgotten about forever are the avant-garde aesthetics that find their voice through offbeat embellishments, bold colors, and inspiring textural mixes. On a mission to discover the perfect wedge sandal, we found just the one to get you ready and excited for the new season.

Introducing the limited edition Lea wedge from Hirica. Quirky, comfy, and stylish, this shoe is a must-have silhouette you’ll champion for its versatility and eye-catching detailing. Available in five colors—black, camel, green, navy, and rouge—the Hirica is rendered in a supple nubuck perforated with dots across the upper. The high-top silhouette’s hits the ankle and secures with two asymmetrical zippers flanking the sides. Featuring a cushioned, cradled footbed, Hirica rides on a synthetic sole with a chunky heel and flexible tread for everyday wear. It’s priced at just $195– a win for both your wallet and closet!

The Hirica Lea wedge sandal fits perfectly into any wardrobe and style expression. Hit the rooftop bar with your best girlfriends for the afternoon in the green or rouge pairs with distressed skinny jeans, an off-the-shoulder knit top, and a woven tote bag.

The camel version is a must styled under a loose-fitting maxi dress layered by a linen cocoon cardigan for a chilly day lounging in your backyard. Lea is ideal for traveling, as well. Its soft upper fits neatly into your carryon for a spur-of-the-moment weekend excursion or a cross-continental trek to the breathtaking locale you’ve been dreaming about all winter long.
