wedge heels means: For anyone who needs an extra boost in height, wedge heels are the best option. Triangular and unbroken, the heel rests on a triangular, solid’slice,’ which extends to the front or middle of your foot. They have been popular since the 1930s and can be made from cork, rubber, wood, or rubber. Sometimes they come with cloth or leather. The platform sole was replaced by wedge heels, which were an alternative and forerunner to wedge heels. (in Fashion Dictionary)
