Can wearing wedges prove to be better than wearing heels?

When it comes to comparing heels and wedges, the later offers a higher level of comfort. There’s a lot of cushion between your feet and the surface so, your feet get sheltered from the ground. On the other hand, when you wear heels, certain parts of the foot remain under constant pressure as there is a lesser surface area for the foot. To put it in simple words, wedges offer better stability for your foot.

While wearing heels, your foot’s arch also faces pressure as the entire foot needs to balance itself on a minimal surface. Wearing such footwear cases long term negative impact in the form of wear and tear in the arches of the foot. Thus, it’s always better to wear something that offers the necessary support to the arches of the foot.
