Why You Should Consider Loving Wedge Shoes Again

Admittedly, I have a hard time picking a pair of wedges. They’re not my first shoe of choice. But given how old styles are making new statements, I’m reconsidering them. They look good with a dress and they can are a more comfortable option as compared to heels.

Aimee Song makes a good case for it in her all-white ensemble as she explored the streets of her hometown LA. So might as well pack a pair when heading to the summers of the US and Europe. It’s the same for our big boss, Hinge Inquirer group publisher Bea Ledesma. She even noted how it literally gives one a new perspective because it does give quite a boost in height.


If you need  a little more push, here are some pairs for you to consider.
