Elites by Walking Cradles introduces flexibility in a platform wedge.

The platform wedge is the stylish and fashionable wedge, and almost all do not flex because of the platform. That's what makes our platform Flexwedge construction so good.

There’s a new shoe in town. St. Louis-based Walking Cradles, a leader in women’s footwear comfort, has announced the release of its innovative Flexwedge platform wedge sandal for the Spring/Summer 2011 season. Part of the Elites by Walking Cradles brand, the Flexwedge brings a whole new kind of construction to platform wedge sandals.

The Flexwedge, like all of the Elites by Walking Cradles line, is manufactured exclusively in Brazil using high quality leathers and natural cork. Stylish platform wedge sandals are rarely thought of as a “comfort” shoe. Walking Cradles saw a need for a platform wedge sandal that could be worn without causing pain or discomfort.

Enter the Flexwedge.

First and foremost, the bottom unit is made with dual zones rather than being solid and immobile like so many platform wedge sandals. This simple innovation allows the foot to move naturally and comfortably – in short, to flex. The poly base is lightweight and provides superior shock absorption, and the unit is wrapped with all-natural cork or Brazilian leather. According to Dennis Bergman, Director of Product Development for the Walking Cradles family of brands including Elites by Walking Cradles, Walking Cradles Sport Collection, and Walking Cradles Classics, “The platform wedge is the stylish and fashionable wedge, and almost all do not flex because of the platform. That's what makes our platform Flexwedge construction so good.”

Walking Cradles exclusive Tiny Pillow™ insole is used for the entire line of Flexwedge summer sandals, providing padding and support that complements the natural contours of the foot. Each foot bed is manufactured to fit precisely in the unit throughout the entire size range – and the size range is vast, one of the most diverse on the market. Elites by Walking Cradles is well known for combining comfort technology with fast trendiness and a wide variety of sizes, and the Flexwedge is no exception; the Flexwedge is manufactured in sizes 4 to 13, slim through extra wide.

The Walking Cradles family of brands includes Walking Cradles, Elites by Walking Cradles, Walking Cradles Sport Collection, and Walking Cradles Classics. Learn more about the Flexwedge and other Walking Cradles footwear at the brand’s website, WalkingCradles.com.
