Sorry to My Heels, But This Comfortable Shoe Trend Is All I Want to Wear Right Now

Sorry to My Heels, But This Comfortable Shoe Trend Is All I Want to Wear Right Now


With summer parties, weddings and work events peppering my calendar, I’ve been looking to invest in a comfortable but elegant shoe that can give me the grace of a high-heel, but without the inevitable discomfort.

To avoid having my favourite heels sink into the grass this summer, I’m swapping out all of my pairs for a polished black wedge instead. With a sleek silhouette that balances elegance with wearability, the black wedge trend offers a comfortable stride, with all of the poise of your favourite heel.

Whilst it was a mainstay in wardrobes throughout the ’90s, ’00s and early ’10s, the wedge trend eventually fell out of favour over the past decade. Luckily for my comfort-craving self, the “dated” shoe has been treated to somewhat of a makeover this season—and it’s never looked better.
