Four Favorites: Wedge Sneakers

❊❊❊

wedgesneeks

Women everywhere are abandoning their heels and platforms for wedge sneakers. To be perfectly honest, I was not a fan of this trend when it began – it reminded me of high school girls basketball. However, if you have a chance – try them on. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but incredibly flattering. The concealed wedge lengthens your legs and gives the figure a ‘lift’.

The pair I tried on were the OG’s – Isabel Marant’s Bekkett. Marant attributes the design to her teenage years when she would put a cork sole in her trainers. “I wanted to keep the comfort of a sneaker while looking taker at the same time,” she says. Since Bekkett’s introduction three years ago, it’s not uncommon for the shoes to be sold out before they could even hit shelves. Now slews of wedged sneakers have now emerged from big names like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Chloé, and Stella McCartney to Sketchers, Steve Madden and even Nike; further propelling the trend of lux street fashion.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Isabel Marant ~ Bekkett: $640.00

Ash ~ Bea: $235.00

BDG ~ Quarter-Strap High-Top Wedge Sneaker: $79.00

Report ~ Cosette: $69.95
