Life suddenly becomes better and brighter; it’s as if you can get through the day tough and energized but still very much in style. This seems to be the wonderful part about wedges; you can wear it with almost anything without feeling too formal or overdressed. They seem to be every feet’s “push-up” tool – magical enough to make your feet sexier with a subtle yet powerful elevation. Besides being able to choose how high or low you want your wedge, you can choose its style, color and design!
Historically, these wedges haven’t really appeared just recently. In fact, the wedge shoe has been rumored to be invented in the 1930’s. Before, wedge shoes/sandals didn’t have any of the variety in heel height and straps but it was just a thick and one-piece sole. Made of cork and wood for its comfort and durability, it was said to be invented by Salvatore Ferragamo. Also during World War II and the difficulty of the times, people needed height but also did not want to walk in very thin heels. Wedges was the answer. When the 1970’s came, designs and styles became more alive, vibrant, and bold. Also, it wasn’t just women who wore these but men too! Then in the 1990’s, the Spice Girls brought the wedges back.
Imagine seeing these again worn by the Spice Girls – that time and generation’s female “idols”. In 2006, more styles developed. Wedges are not solely push-ups for your feet, but a fashionably healthy shoe too!
Medical and scientific methods prove that wearing wedges improves posture and back problems and prevents foot or ankle problems. In this light, wedges seem to be for the woman who chooses comfort and style; who chooses beauty and health; who chooses how she looks on the outside and how she feels on the inside.
