Wedge your bets on it
The popularity of the wedge hasn’t diminished.  Perhaps it’s the wedges ability to give extra height and stability.  It’s much more comfortable to wear wedges than to teeter around on skinny little stiletto heels.  The prevalence of wedges is fantastic because more comfort shoe brands are incorporating this style into their sandals.  This means we can have happy and cute feet while touring cities in the heat of summer.  A wedge style sandal can smarten up capris as well as dress up a skirt or dress.

There are lots of options when it comes to wedge sandals remember to stick to styles that are designed for comfort and walking.  Sandals with ankle straps will provide more stability than open back styles.
