Wedge Me

The wedge.

They are all over the fashion week runways and soon you’ll be sporting your very own pair, if you don’t already have a bunch in your closet.

What is so great about the wedge is it offers you height, sans the instability and (sometimes) discomfort of a high heel.

I did some digging and it turns out the first wedge dates back to the 1930’s.   Actually it was 1936 to be exact and the designer was none other than Salvatore Ferragamo.  His first wedge had an “F” shaped heel made from wood.

Than in 1939 he made a cork wedge heel for the infamous Judy Garland.  Wow comes to mind looking at this shoe.

Since than the wedge has morphed into the colors, styles and shapes that we see pounding the runways and pavement today.

It’s a hot trend for the approaching spring season, probably because they go so well with most outfits and are easy on the tootsies.  Whether you’re looking for something classic or edgy, with cork or fringe, metallic or snakeskin, I’m sure you’ll find a pair you love on ShoeDazzle 

You can go sky high with these wedges.

 

If you’re looking for something a little lower to the ground check these beauties out.

 

Street style is what your looking for?   You’ll love the wedge sneakers.

 

Here’s the best part.  They’re all under $40.

I ❤ wedges.
