I don't do high heels anymore. Two inches are about my limit. But, I have seen a pr of 3 in wedges, I am considering. I just wonder if  anyone here has a pr, and if they are comfortable? I am posting here because I think  it gets more traffic than the other forums

If you are accustomed to wearing 2 inch heels, l think 3 inch wedges would work for you if they have a 1 inch platform. Then they would feel like you’re wearing 2 inch heels.

Higher wedges is what I wear in the summer in lieu of high heels.  More comfortable and wearable if you like high heels.  Not as dressy as high heels, however.

I just want a suede pr for fall and winter. I really don't attend formal affairs ,where I need to be worried about dressy heels, just events that you would dress in nicer clothing

I personally wouldn't go up in heel height unless you have a front platform to take pressure off of your back.

@cherry  @ECBG   Definitely agree about needing a 3/4”-1” platform so it feels like a 2” heel.

I agree, if the front of the shoe has a platform that also adds comfort to the footbed, then a higher wedge can work but be careful that the shoe is stable if it's higher. You probably don't want a steeper incline which can affect the forward pitch and put pressure on the balls of your feet.

I love wedge shoes.  I do not however like any real platform on them.  I don't wear high heels often but wedges work for me.  Cole Haan makes some fabulous wedges.
