Wedges. From the mark of the eccentric to fashion MUSTS!

A debate about the pros and cons, even opportunities and risks of a… pair of shoes, is hardly a proper discussion to have, isn’t it?

In the 1970s, when platform shoes – today’s retro – were the newest and wildest trend – if not even avant-garde – opinions varied. From their presumed poor safety record and if it really can be balanced out by how great they look to speculations on how much time it takes, wearing them, until the first medical, if not surgeon’s visit!! Meanwhile, their dangerous looking heels have morphed into wedges and the worry has died down. And platform shoes are no longer just for stars and groupies. They’re part of the fashion fun in our lives!
