Florence Pugh Just Made These Very Y2K Wedges Look Super Chic

Actress Florence Pugh made us do a double take when she was spotted in NYC last week. Clad in a matching Valentino coat and bag, Pugh surprised us with her '00s-era wedge boots that were paired perfectly with wide-leg cuffed trousers giving off a throwback vibe in the best way.

Unlike Pugh's favorite Valentino platforms, these shoes are actually quite practical for walking around the city. It's no wonder that wedges were the It shoes for the fashion set for so many years—they're the perfect day-to-night shoes. Plus, they pair perfectly with the wider-leg jeans and pants that are very on-trend again, taking any look from casual to coordinated. 

Inspired by the sartorial sensibilities of Miss Flo, we searched high and low for wedge heels that feel simultaneously Y2K-reminiscent yet modern. Keep scrolling to shop for wedge boots, mules, and sandals to wear now or save for next winter.
