What are Wedges Shoes?

Question by Guest | 17/02/2018 at 14:43

I really get confused with those many different shoe models, terms and names nowadays. Can someone tell me what wedges are? Lately, I am hearing that term quite often.

Wedges are simply shoes with a wedge heel. That is, there is no pointy heel, but a continuous heel in the form of a wedge, which is in a way pushed under the shoes.

Or in other words: the sole is at a normal height (or with a plateau) at the front and increases more and more to behind. It looks a bit like as if someone has filled up the  space between shoe and heel.

Good morning Lipstick,

very well explained! I have also some wedges, they have a heel of 16 cm.

But what is the name of the wedges that have no heel at the back with which I can only walk on the balls of my feet?

Nice day.

What you mean are pony boots, but those shoes really have nothing to do with wedges anymore...

Wedges are characterized by the fact that they have a "heel" under the entire sole of the foot.
