Maison Martin Margiela x H&M Plexi Wedge Booties

Designer capsule collections never really bothered me, mostly because I found most items to be way too overpriced and . Maison Martin Margiela x H&M was no different for me. I know many consider Margiela to be a fashion visionary, but I finnd most of his clothes simply unwearable. It’s just not my style. However, I always used to have a soft spot for his shoe line and the shoes from Margiela’s capsule collection for H&M really resonated with me. My absolute favorite style were the wedge booties with the lucite wedge heel but $350 for a pair of H&M shoes? Uh, thank you, but no, thank you!

While I think $171.99 is still quite a lot of money for an H&M-quality item, these lucite heel wedge booties by Choies which look almost identical to the Margiela x H&M wedges are still about 50% cheaper and made of real leather, too, just like the real Margielas. Plus, you can save another 20% with the promo code above which cuts down the price to a reasonable $137.59 (the store offers free worldwide shipping, too). Now that’s a deal, right?

How to wear heels and feel comfy

Dear good friends of mine, if we were living in a perfect world, we’d be able to find slender stilettos that were as easy on our toes as a pair of slippers. But in the real world, the marriage of the vertiginous and comfortable is a bit harder to come by. Still, a limited few magic heels do exist at the elusive center of that Venn diagram. Ahead, the five secrets that separate the ouch! from the whew! — learn ‘em, shop for ‘em, and live in ‘em!


The Ankle Strap — One of the most uncomfortable things about pumps is having to dig in with your toes to make sure it stays on your feet. An ankle strap ensures that the shoe stays put.


The Thick Heel — It’s a no-brainer that spindly heels are much less stable than a chunky one. From substantially stacked heels to near-wedges, these shoes will give you that height you want without making you wobbly.



The Bootie — It goes without saying that a bootie uses your entire foot as an anchor, rather than rely on just your toes and your ankles to keep your shoes on your feet. But, be careful of pinched toes! Because the leather is a little bit stiffer in a boot, it’s important to find one that gives your toes room to move.


The Wedge — A solid wedge not only provides stability, but it also gives your arches a little bit of support.


The Hidden Platform — A hidden platform means that the pitch doesn’t have to be as intense. Plus, a little toe boost also gives you a wee bit of support — really, you’ll feel the difference!
