As you refresh your spring wardrobe, add a pair of wedge sandals to your shopping list. These shoes are having a comeback and becoming as a trending shoe for spring and summer. In addition, these sandals come in a variety of heights.

Are Wedge Sandals Comfortable to Walk In?

The heel part of a wedge sandal helps to distribute your body weight over the entire underside of the foot. You won’t feel as much pressure on the ball of your foot while you’re walking.
