Shoe Obsessed: MYMU Wedges
As you well know, we’re seriously obsessed with shoes (we’ve even created a map to track our well-heeled obsessions… and an iPhone app dedicated expressly to shoes). Each week our shoe-obsessed to the point of giddy assistant buyer, Rachel, will fill you in on the hottest styles and trends to hit our Shoe Salons.
This week? MYMU’s Colorful Wedges
Have you met MYMU?
Well, let me introduce you. Brand new to 5F, these kicky espadrilles are all we can think about for summer.
Designer Gabriela Lanardonne uses vibrant color blocking and fun fabrics to create her Argentine-inspired espadrille wedges. In fact, her collection stems from sunny vacations spent in Buenos Aries where she discovered Argentine Alpargatas (an espadrille brand created by Argentine immigrants in the late 19th century) worn by all the stylish local girls. Gabriela’s shoe collection evolved soon after her return to busy, bustling Manhattan, as her own homage to Alpargata’s legacy.
MYMU’s wedges are an absolute must this summer. They’re simple yet sophisticated, with a very modern take on a classic shape. Imagine these strolling through the park in your prettiest sun frock… just think how leggy you’ll be! Right now, we can’t stop thinking about pairing Gabriela’s colorblocked wedges with crisp, white dresses.

Let our shoes come to you
Rachel is an assistant buyer for our Second Floor Shoe Salon. First joining us as an intern, this Mid-West girl discovered her shoe obsessions as a wee one admiring a pair of Victorian booties that inevitably inspired massive pangs of envy. From then on, she was hooked — from spinning about as a child in crystal-flecked Converse to discovering Fashion City’s sample sales just after college. In fact, Rachel has been known to spend her entire Saturday in our Shoe Salon, searching for her next pair. You can follow more of Rachel’s shoe adventures on Instagram.
