Sandals are a wonderfully feminine subgroup of the 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 produced with a heel and usually an elaborately designed design and an arrangement of the straps as well as a feminine decoration of the shoe and a shoe narrower 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 a wedge heel.
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 also the sandal is a shoe shape with tradition that keeps coming back from the 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 the 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, a continuous thickening is made between the insole and the outsole of the sandal, which has the shape of a wedge and, depending on the model, can be only a few centimeters high and thus moderate be paragraph represented or in fact ten inches or more can amount to and thus the high paragraph reaches heights. In a combination of the wedge heel with a platform sole, which is also known in the trade as plateau wedges, even more centimeters of height can be reached in a comfortable way without the foot being bent or strained.
Ferragamo developed the wedge heel in 1936 and initially adapted summer shoes such as sandals with the new heel. Although two years later a large percentage of American women’s shoes of all kinds were offered for sale with the new heel, the combination of sandal and wedge heel is still one absolute favorite among the types of sandals.
