2012 has had some hits and misses but the hottest trend this year by far is, the Sneaker Wedge. Fashion industry folk are not known for their love of comfortable footwear. Actually, a few seasons ago it would have been completely unthinkable to wear your running shoes around during fashion week.
Nonetheless, celebs, fashionistas and catwalkers alike have made room in their closets to "Get Sneaky". Of course they’re not just regular old tennis shoes. They’ve got a little something extra - about three inches of hidden wedge, to be exact. And we have the doyenne of all things dope, Isabel Marant to thank for it: She kicked off the trend with her covetable Willow sneaker wedges, which retail for $760–that is if you’ve been lucky enough to snap them up already: The shoe has been so sought-after that your best bet for scoring the covetable kick is to start scouring eBay, where prices seem to hover at a cool grand.
No fear, we debuted and very compatible designer inspired version called the HILIGHT by Steve Madden that seems to have tonques wagging.
What's that? How do you ROCK Sneaker Wedges? No fear, here are a few familiar faces to show you!
