Wedge flip flops

Updated on January 25, 2013

Summer Footwear


Summer is here again, with its beautiful sunny days and balmy nights.

I am a fan of high heels and my summer footwear reflects this. However going to the beach or simply engaging in summer fun activities requires a special type of shoes. My children’s favourite footwear for summer is their flip flops, they just love going around with their little happy toes free to the elements. My mom, on the other hand swears by her Birkenstocks, which I find very comfortable but incredibly ugly and unfashionable; but as long as she is comfortable and happy with her Birkenstocks, who cares!

Ordinarily, I would cringe at the idea of wearing flip flops, they just make me look shorter and sturdier, plus I feel I am walking like a duck with them. But, wedged flip flops, they are a completely different story.

Wedge Flip flops can be Fashionable and elegant

I love summer weddings, especially when they take place at the beach. Obviously, if you are going to be walking along the sand to your Romeo’s arms, instead of down the aisle, you need special shoes to complement your wedding gown. These dazzling and very popular elegant Bridal Flip Flops (on the right) are the perfect accessory to anyone looking for a comfortable yet trendy alternative to wedding shoes.

This type of wedge flip flop are so stylish and elegant that can also be used at any formal summer-beach event.

Why wear wedge flip flops?


  • Flip flops with a wedge add height, and being a few centimetres taller adds to the overall impression of being taller and slimmer.
  • Having a slight elevation in your shoes reduces plantar foot pain, because a few centimetres heel reduces shock when you are walking.
  • Wearing wedge flip flops allows your feet to breathe and decreases the risk of bad odour and feet problems.
  • Wedge flip flops improve posture. When wearing high heels you are forced to keep your body straighter, tuck in your tummy and tighten your buttocks.
  • Wedge flip flops are a step more elegant option than wearing ordinary flip lops or flat sandals.

      Ethel: of course you are right everything goes down to personal choice and of course whatever is more comfortable for you.

      Wonderful hub. I love flip flops. Your section about why wear wedge flip flops was great as well as the rest of your hub. I noticed that when my middle school students started wearing wedge flip flops they developed more of a gentle sway to their walk. I can only assume it is because of the repositioning of their posture. Thanks for sharing the information.

      It all boils down to personal choice. I would say those black melissa wedge sandals are ugly but not my Birkies :)

      BkCreative: it is amazing what a little wedge can do for the ordinary flip flop isn't it? Only with adding a few centimetres in height you can go from frumpy to sexy ;-)

      I live for summer and flip flops and wear them as long as I can into the fall. These wedge types look pretty neat - even kind of sexy so I am going to look into a pair.

      Thanks for the nice looking hub!
