Mack at You – The Perfectly Chic Summer Platform Sandal
Pittsburgh-based designer Emy Mack, who recently opened a boutique in Shadyside, has the shoe style you need for the warmer weather.
Now that the warmer weather is here to stay, it’s time to choose a platform — and by that, we mean a pair of towering wedge sandals.
Pittsburgh-based designer Emy Mack, whose Italian-made luxury footwear line has been featured on the Lifetime Network’s "Project Runway" and in the pages of Marie Claire magazine — opened her collective boutique this spring on Filbert Street in Shadyside. Previously, Mack operated an appointment-only showroom on Walnut Street.
The new boutique (and its regular shopping hours) is good news for local fashionistas wanting to get up close and personal with the shoes celebrities already adore. Mack’s harem of stylish star followers include "Scandal"’s Kerry Washington, who publicly proclaimed her love for the brand’s chic “Sienna” slippers on Twitter.
While flats and slippers are great for casual summer dressing, nothing beats an amazing pair of wedge heels when it comes to showing off your legs. In particular, we love Emy Mack’s “Betsy” lacquered wedge ($425) in a trendy metallic rose gold.
Handmade in Italy, the “Betsy” has a leather-padded insole and outsole. The 5-inch cork heel is guaranteed to make your gams look miles long when paired with shorts or a fluttery skirt. Now all you need is a tan!
