Sandals are a wonderfully feminine subgroup of classic sandals and are used in the shoe trade as classic women’s shoe offered. The sandal traditionally differs from the sandal in that it is made with a heel and usually an elaborately designed design and arrangement of the straps, as well as a feminine decoration of the shoe and a shoe slimmer cut to have. The sandal can have different types of heels and heel heights and is therefore divided into different categories. A particularly popular variant is the sandal with wedge heels.
The wedge heel and the sandal – the perfect combination of new and old
The sandal is one of the oldest types of shoes in the world and the sandal is also a shoe shape with a tradition that keeps coming back from that Newly interpreted designers and is updated in style. In contrast, the wedge heel is relatively young in direct comparison to other types of heels.
The heel was invented by Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo with his innovative shoe design famous in America and Europe has been. In the wedge heel, in English-speaking countries and in retail also under the name Wedges out, there is a continuous thickening between the inner sole and the outer sole of the sandal, which has the shape of a wedge and, depending on the model, can only be a few centimeters high and therefore moderate Unit volume represented or in fact ten inches or more can be and thus the high heel reaches heights. Combining the wedge heel with a platform sole, also known in the trade as platform wedges, is a more comfortable way to add even more inches of height without bending or straining the foot.
Ferragamo developed the wedge heel in 1936 and initially adapted summer shoes such as sandals to the new heel. Although two years later a large percentage of American women’s shoes of all types were for sale with the new heel, the sandal-wedge combination is still one absolute favourite among the types of sandals.
