The Perfect Wedges And Block Heels To Get You Through Melbourne Cup Day

We’ve never been happier to see that wedges and block heels are back in style, with stacks of amazing options for Spring Racing to keep us comfortable.

Racing season is well underway and Melbourne Cup just around the corner – aka the perfect way to unwind after that rough Monday back at work.

If you’re staying in Adelaide and hitting up one of the hundred events going on (see a full list of Melbourne Cup events in our guide here) or heading over to Melbs for the race, one thing is for sure, it’s going to be a long day! And ladies, footwear is crucial!

You want to look good, be comfortable and avoid getting your heels stuck in the grass (we’ve all been there). Even if you’re just hitting up a cocktail party and you’ll be standing on a concrete floor, your shoe choice can make or break your day. Which is why we’ve found the most comfortable, glamorous shoes this season, to keep you upright, and prevent you from being that girl who takes her shoes off (we all know one… or might even be one!)

Cherri Bellini

First up, the team at Cherri Bellini on Rundle Street have a great selection, plus they’re actually Italian, so the quality is amazing and you won’t find other people wearing the same shoes on the day. Whether it be the perfect flat, wedge, slides or our personal fave the block heel (sorry stilettos, not today), you’ll tick all the boxes. And fun fact: they have 20% off selected Melbourne cup styles!


Find at their Rundle Street store or shop online with free express shipping available (a girls bestfriend) to ensure you’ll be ready for Melbourne Cup day.

Then there’s some other online options which you’ll need to order quick if you’re going to get them in time for Tuesday!

Don’t be the one to leave the party early because you didn’t take our advice, and never be the girl who has to take her shoes off. Be smart and look good.



You’re welcome!
