Wedding season may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean you can put your dancing shoes up just yet. Holiday parties are right around the corner, and you’ll want to put your best foot forward at these events as well. There is no need to worry yourself about proper footwear for these upcoming events, though.
SRI has the perfect solution for all of these upcoming events: wedge shoes.
A Brief History of the Wedge Shoe
The wedge is type of shoe that boasts a sole in the form of, you guessed it, a wedge. This means that one piece of material, typically rubber, serves as both the sole and the heel. The heel is often taller than the sole, putting wedges under the category of high-heels.
Some say this design dates back to ancient Greece, but they really became popular in the 1930s when designer Salvatore Ferragamo started utilizing them in Italy. Wedge shoes are primarily for women, though the men’s “wedgie” that was popular in the 1970’s did make a brief comeback in 2010.
The Perfect Wedge Shoe for Work
Though wedge shoes are lumped in with other high-heeled shoes, they are typically more comfortable than the standard high-heel. This makes them the perfect shoe for your 9-5 — and will keep your feet feeling great while looking stylish. When at work, a wedge shoe with a closed toe is generally most appropriate.
Though, if your workplace’s dress code is more relaxed, definitely have a little fun and let those toes peek out.
The Ideal Wedge Shoe for a Fall Outing
Whether you’re headed out to a corn maze to pick up the perfect pumpkin for a jack-o-lantern or to enjoy one of the million pumpkin spiced flavored somethings, it’s fun to dress the part.
So, pull out your over-sized scarf and wedge booties to welcome the fall season in style.
The Exceptional Wedge Shoe for a Wedding
During this season, weddings on the beach are traded for ceremonies in the mountains among the brilliant changing leaves. Wedges are the perfect choice for an outdoor fall wedding as stilettos are likely to sink in the grassy meadows you’ll find yourself in. To keep your ankle safe and stable on the dancefloor, we recommend going with a wedge that also has an ankle-strap.
