Wedges are sold as an easier way to gain height, with more contact area they are more stable. Nonsense. I’m going to prove that stilettos are no harder to walk in.
Look carefully at the picture, theres still a gap between the wedge section and the ground. So actually the wedge doesn’t touch the ground at all, and your contact area is more or less the same. Sorry Priscilla, please look away, you don’t want to see the state of them.
Now to make things worse, when walking on belgian cobbles the wedge is actually less stable because the wedge actually prevents you from bridging over the cobbles, and puts the weight onto somewhere unnatural.
I’m not going to be a heel nazi and insist you must not wear wedges. They do genuinely make a difference on loose surfaces such as grass or sand. Just remember if you can walk well in wedges you can do exactly the same in stilettos, there is no difference in technique.
