Are Wedges Outdated? I Asked 9 Fashion Editors to Decide

Could a shoe trend you wore in high school be cool again? That’s the question I posed to my fellow Who What Wear editors concerning the emergence of wedges. It brands like Staud, LOQ, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh have been churning out wedges that are a far cry from the ones you owned in 2002, and plenty of people are jumping on board for summer 2019. But what do editors really think of the trend?

As it turns out, our Who What Wear team is overwhelmingly in favor of wedges, with all nine editors confirming they are indeed stylish, and none of the editors giving them a thumbs-down. Even though we work in close proximity to each other, our tastes naturally differ. For instance, one editor is anti-espadrille wedges while another is on board with this specific interpretation of the trend. (Kate Middleton is a fan of espadrille wedges, by the way.)
