The Versatility of Wedges Shoes

There are plenty of shoes in the market for all consumers. Ladies are the greatest consumer group on shoes with a myriad of shoe types that include high, wedges, flats, sandals, low heels, slippers, boots and platform shoes.

Ladies are known to enjoy all types of shoes which include boots of all kinds; boots can be laced, flat, ankle, heel, low heel and wellington boots.


With so many varieties in the market, it may be a daunting choice for ladies to purchase a pair of shoes. However, wedges shoes have seen a consistently increase in demand over the recent years with the myriad of designs and styles available.

Wedges shoes are growing popular as alternatives to heels. A shoe is similar to platform shoes with heels for extra height but a full length sole that is based on a single piece platform. They would experience less pains and aches although a constant wearing of wedges shoes may bring on possible back problems over time.


Wedge can be of a variety of designs; these can be chunky pieces with large accessories such as zips, buttons and metal pieces for a rock star image or shoes can be soft and sleek with lace and fabric materials.

The basic of wedge is its one piece sole that is so distinctive; hence, many ladies may feel that the shoe looks chunky especially with an elevated heel. However, the right design can provide much comfort to the wearer as compared to heels.


Wedge with the whole sole piece allow the wearer’s weight to be equally distributed which is good for the wearer whereas high offer only two contact points with the surface. Hence, a lot more strain is felt with high than wedges shoes. The feet are better protected with wedges shoes than with high heels.

Wedge are then more comfortable and protective on feet than heels. Ladies wearing shoes do not feel as tired wearing and walking than with high heels. They would experience less pains and aches although a constant wearing of wedges shoes may bring on possible back problems over time.


The most popular material for the wedge sole is cork although rubber was preferred but a shortage brought on cork in the early 1903s. Cork shoes are preferred over traditional wooden soles for its lightweight properties. Wedges shoes with cork platforms or soles make walking easy as the shoes are light in lifting up during walking. Cork is also slightly elastic to absorb some impact of walking.
