Wedges give a lift to life with their typically tall designs. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, they're practical too with the inherently stable walking position they provide. A wedge heel is unique in that it extends from the back of the foot to the forefront. A wedge is also distinct from a platform which describes a thick sole, usually over 3 or 4 inches. Some platforms do include wedges and these hybrids are often referred to as "platform wedges."
