History of wedge shoes or platforms

Salvatore Ferragamo, an Italian designer, saw the need for an orthopedic shoe and designed the first female wedge shoe in 1935. A year later he improved his invention by adding a heel detail. Given the lack of leather in Italy at the time, Ferragamo's main contribution was to include materials such as cork in the manufacture of the shoe. Cork made these first platforms very light and easy to walk.

The wedge platforms had a strong influence on women during the Second World War.  The use of cork due to the lack of rubber and leather made them an alternative to enhance the female figure. Wedge shoes reached up to five inches in height during this time.
The 1970s brought back the platforms and marked a trend throughout the decade. The freedom of the time, the colors and the irreverence of the counterculture especially in the United States, made platform shoes reach even men's fashion.
