How long can you stand in a pair of five-inch heels? No judgment, we can't manage more than a couple of hours max — and it has to be on carpet. As much as we will continue to always love the skyscraper heel, it's not a realistic choice as the shoe to schlep around London in (have you seen what escalators do to a stiletto?)
That's why we've rounded up 18 pairs of the wonder shoes that you really can run this town in: wedges. From merlot suede booties to tough-girl Chelsea heels and razor-sharp T-bars, we give your the styles that promise to go the distance.
