Heel power

I love, love, LOVE to wear heels, but I'm on my feet a lot, so stilettos are definitely out of the question for hours of wear. However, I have learned that most wedges give me much better support, especially if the wedge has a cork heel.

The cork heel seems to distribute my weight a more evenly across my foot, so the ball of my foot gets a break (unlike stilettos). It also seems to help that wedges seem to have a thicker sole just under the ball of the foot.

I've shown a strappy pink sandal wedge in my photo here because Spring is right around the corner! However, for winter I recommend a great pair of wedge heel boots. You'll never want to take them off. Just think of all the toning your legs will get.

Here are some of my favorite places to pay homage to the wedge:

May the wedge be with you!

      Block heels, which offer good arch support and do not cramp the toes are very comfortable. As you have said, weight distribution over the whole of the foot and with a platform under the ball of the foot gives the comfort level to allow you to be on your feet all day. Straps also help keep the shoe or boot on the foot, which saves cramping toes to keep the shoe on, all helps in footwear comfort
