On wedges and such

The universe of wedges is vast and immeasurable - classic wegde, fancy wedge, funky wedge, wedge that goes way beyond funky or fancy (or in any cases, both of them, combined). It instantely makes your legs longer, your posture better (no, you can't slack out in those) and overall, gives you all the benefits of a heel, at the same time offering much more stability and comfort. And they never wobble!
However, the quesiton of the right arch support still stays: if a wedge doesn't have it, in my experience walking in such footwear becomes even more impossible than in a comparable pair of heels. But technicalities aside, this is what the upcoming spring/summer season has to offer us wedge lovers.
Sporty and sporty/fancy wedges are especially great-looking this season and pose a serious threat to a shoe-lover's budget.
