We’re entering the last few weeks of summer and now’s the time to get some great bargains as the shops begin to clear out their stock to make room for the autumn/winter collections.

However, Ladies Days at the races are not yet over, so combine the excuse to dress up with end-of-season sales and what do you get? Some wonderful wedgie winners, that’s what!

Wedges are ideal shoes for the races as there are no spiky heels to disappear into the turf, while the height provides glamour and the solidity makes for a comfortable shoe to stand around on all day long.

And as these selections show, wedges don’t have to look clumpy! So take advantage of the sales now for your end-of-summer racing – and have some practical raceday beauties stashed away in your wardrobe ready for next year!
