Wedged 'In'

Are wedge shoes ever out of style?  If we talk about the last decade of fashion, we can certainly say that the wedge shoe has been a permanent fixture on the runways.
Since the Mac Daddy of the Wedge Heel, Salvatore Ferregamo (shoe on the left, circa 1944) made his first pair, women's footwear was never the same.

Stilettos are always going to be our fave but there’s just something about the wedge that sceams 'SPRING', non?
Sure, they make great wedge shoes & boots for the winter but nothing is more adorably stylish than a little wedge sandal.

We searched ‘high and low’ for the best wedge sandals in four categories:
