Hold onto your hats – wedges are back in town. If you thought the return of ballet flats was a shocker, brace yourself for this blast from the past. 

We know what you’re thinking: ‘wedges, really?’. Wipe away images of clunky, sky-high heels and peep-toes that were once all the rage among celebs like Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, and Nicole Richie in the early 2000s. The divisive wedge is stepping back into the spotlight, and this time around, it’s sleek, understated, and far more stylish than its early aughts counterparts.

With the stamp of approval from the hottest brands such as Khaite, Zimmermann and Chloe, the consensus is that wedges are being warmly welcomed back into our shoe-drobes.
