For anyone who wants to be sky high and on trend without the tottering, wedge shoes are perfect. Wedge shoes were big in the 70s and 40 plus years on, fashionistas are still rocking them. Who didn't fall in love with Marc Jacobs' quirky red wedge shoes, the perfect cutting edge wedge, if you ask us. And with our toes all pedicured up (they are all 12 months of the year we'll have you know), we're also planning on investing in some cute, peep toe wedges too.
Here's an interesting fact for all you shoeaholics. Shoe icon Salvatore Ferragamo designed the first wedge-heel shoes in 1934, using cork and wood for the sole due to a shortage of rubber and leather. And fashion hasn't looked back since.
Wedges, which vary in height from Everest to molehill, have a solid platform sole with no separation between the heel and toe of the shoe. The heel portion of the sole is shaped like a wedge, hence the name. They're a great way to gain height while maintaining a certain level of comfort and walkability.
Wedge shoes are a have-to-have for any edgy fashionista's wardrobe. Hot this season are scarf print super-high wedges, as seen at D&G. They look best with bare, tanned legs, a short dress and a little sway in the hip.
