History of Wedges shoes

Wedge shoes were created by Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo and have been around since the 1930s. The wedge heel runs under the foot, from the back of the shoe to the middle or front. Height of the wedge ranges from a slight raise in the heel to several inches. Ferragamo used cork and wood. Cork was more popular because it was lighter, sturdy and durable.

In the 1970s wedge shoe designs became more colorful and bolder. In the 1990s wedge sneakers appeared and were seen on celebrities like the Spice Girls.

Wedges offer height and are easier to walk in compared to high heel s. They help make your legs look longer and your body slimmer. Wedge heels support the entire foot, making the shoe more comfortable and easier to balance on.

Wedge heels can be covered with jute rope, wood-grain, or look like an extension of the sole while featuring the same color and material as the shoe.

Wedges have never gone out of style and have remained a popular fashion choice throughout the years.

If you want to wear something comfortable but look dressed up and have a little style, the wedge is definitely a go-to shoe. This is one shoe that has literally tons of great style options to choose from.
