Wedge Flip Flops

Wedge Flip Flops

Originally flip flops were a “V” shaped type of sandal, suitable for use in and around the house. Other use for this type of foot wear was harmful for the feet and could lead to foot pain and in severe cases deformities of the feet due to placing a strain on the toes for a prolonged period of time in order to keep a grip on the sandals. Over time this changed and the result came in two different versions: The heeled flip flops and the wedge flip flops.

A type of sandal for women

Where the heeled flip flops were typically geared towards both sexes, men and women alike, wedge flip flops are typically geared towards women which resulted in wedge flip flops with all kinds of decorations, colors, shapes and sizes.
Wedge flip flops are an excellent choice for the woman who wants to walk comfortably while gaining an extra few inches in height.  This particular type of sandal typically goes well with any type of outfit and makes for a trendy addition to any outfit. Therefore this type of foot wear is suitable for just about any occasion, casual and during official functions. Thanks to this new shape, they are suitable for almost all purposes, and the risks of injuring the feet is eliminated thanks to the wedge, which provides a better and more comfortable posture.
