Sexy, bold, and elegant, Alexandre Birman shoes have become favorites with Hollywood A-listers and A-list fashionistas alike. Platform python sandals and pumps, metallic stilettos, peep-toe oxfords, and python-accented espadrille wedges are just some of the edgy, glammy designs created by this award-winning Brazilian-born designer, who launched his line in 2008. More reserved fashionistas adore Birman's comfy, leather-lined ballet flats and woven leather t-strap sandals, which feature a tiny heel for those times when you want to turn down the volume. With a celebrity fan base that includes Leighton Meester, Kate Hudson, and Katy Perry, Birman has been recognized by both the industry and the fashion press as a top emerging fashion talent.

Why do we love wedges? Because they deliver serious height without the discomfort of a high heel. And this stylish selection of transitional wedges serves another purpose as well: Providing a look you can wear from now all the way through summer. Choose from neutral criss-cross leather platforms, classic blacks, and daring olive python styles. Whether they’re paired with jeans for now or leg-baring frocks as the weather heats up, these options definitely deserve a spot in your shoe closet.
