Sneaker Freak

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are probably well aware that high top sneakers have been having a major moment . . . thanks to Isabel Marant‘s covetable sneaker wedges, of course. Though eBay might be the only place to score the original pair that inspired it all, we’ve rounded up some comparable kicks. What do you think? Are you on board with this season’s trend?

    I think if you have super long and slim legs, it can end up looking very cool (but honestly, what doesn’t when you have super long and slim legs). If your legs are more on the stocky side, this is just asking for trouble. Trust me, I’ve tried them on. Not a pleasant experience. That said, I do think that the models that Ash is churning out are somewhat more streamlined and flattering.

  17. Frothandcloth, no honey, you are not alone. I think they are hideous! But this is why we have chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. Confess I also think they are funny and fun, because seeing someone wearing them would make me chuckle – in a nice way. I just want to see how many of y’all are wearing them a year from now…

    I love them just because I have an obsession for sneakers. I mean heels are great too but theres something about sneakers that makes it so much cooler. Maybe that’s it, they’re just cool.

    I don’t understand these. Why do people want to wear shoes that effectively have high heels but look like flats, or worse, like the type of orthopedic shoes that are supposed to hide that the person wearing them has one leg shorter than the other?

    I love sneakers. I’m a shoe girl but I own some dope a** pairs of jordans. High-top kicks are all the rage where I’m from (been for quite a long time). I’m digging the wedge heel sneakers very adorable, sporty, and sexy at the same time. Chic! xo

    I LOVE this trend. MTNG and SixtySeven have less costly versions, and they are 100% Spanish Leather and made in Spain, so the quality is on par.
