Wedge your bets! 5 great wedge shoes for spring
We like to think of wedges as a diplomatic force on our shoe rack. Yup, they’ll gladly lend you a couple extra inches of height and elongate your legs. Unlike high heels, though, the wedge heel runs all the way underneath your foot–meaning fewer aches and pains and you won’t feel like you’re a circus performer on stilts when you’re walking.
Spring’s newest arrivals are promising that wedges will be having a major fashion moment this season and throughout the summer. From fun, bright wedges perfect for pairing with sundresses to polished shoes that will kick up your work style, here are five wedges we’re loving for spring.
