Wedge Shoes – Look Feminine and Walk Comfortable

Today on Fashion and Cookies let's talk about wedge shoes !.

Wedge shoes offer the aesthetic benefits of wearing heels, without the unhealthy discomfort that certain high heels can cause for your feet and back. As the ultimate summer shoe for any woman, wedges have plenty of benefits. But what are they?.
The Italian shoe designer, Salvatore Ferragamo, claims to have created the wedge back in 1936. However, it wasn’t until the 1970’s when wedge shoes started to become famous worldwide. Nowadays, the wedge is a staple of every woman’s wardrobe. But why should you invest in a pair?

A style for every season

Wedges can be found in both covered and uncovered designs, and this means that you can wear this type of footwear, no matter what the season. Whether it’s a wedge sandal for the summer or a wedge boot for the winter, these heels will always have your back.

Feminine

In terms of style and look, wedges give women the same advantages of high heels. They make the person appear taller, the legs appear longer, and the foot appear smaller. Women who wear high heels change their body posture by walking on a more upright carriage, and this is why high heels are synonymous with feminine seduction.

Comfortable

Whilst wedge shoes include all the above benefits of high heels, they are not as damaging to the wearer’s body. As the heel is in a wedge form and goes all the way along the sole of the shoe, wedge shoes are much more comfortable, and reduce the risk of foot pain and discomfort when walking.
Unlike traditional high heels, wedge shoes are not as likely to result in sprains, fractures or other foot deformities. In addition, the ankle strap that often comes with wedges shoes makes them more stable and offers more support.

Suitable for pregnancy

Wearing heels is not advisable during pregnancy, due to the extra pressure they put on the woman’s back and legs. However, wedge shoes are considered suitable for pregnant women. Although it is important not to abuse them, a pair of low wedges shoes could give you the advantages of a little height for a special occasion, whilst taking care of your well-being at the same time.

Wide range of materials

Another benefit of wedges shoes is that they can be designed and created in many different materials, including plastic, leather, wood, cork and fabric. This gives them greater versatility and makes them perfect for any wardrobe.

  17. I'm always surprised by how comfortable wedges are! I usually wear a lot of high heels, even when I'm not at work or going out, but most of the time I can only walk a little in them before my feet are killing me. I like that wedges can be extremely comfortable and stylish!
