Meet the Ann Demeulemeester Shwedge: A Shoe + Wedge in One

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Meet the shwedge: part stiletto heel, part wedge, as featured in the fall 2010 Ann Demeulemeester collection, now available for pre-order at Luisa via Roma.

If teetering around in sky-high stilettos makes your ankles fear for their lives, and clomping around in easy-to-walk-in wedges may sometimes feel a tad indelicate, well, we guess this the solution?

What do you think? Let's put this to a vote, shall we.
