Even though I am well aware that these are most likely to end up as just another fad (anyone remember those platform sneakers favoured by the spice girls? yeah, I’m thinking that kinda thing); I’d love to get peoples thoughts on this ‘so-hot-right-now’ trend = sneakers with built-in wedges.
Now, these aren’t exactly a new concept, the do look more comfy than your average wedge and allow you get the benefit of looking casual while enjoying the benefits that a pair of heels can provide (hello bum lift, toned legs etc.) and there are some designers who are doing them very well;
Take these Isabel Marant Perkins Suede & Leather Wedge Sneakers, (currently on sale for approx AU$250 through net-a-porter.com)
and Ash Footwear have been producing a couple of variations on the concept for little while now which range between US$150-$250
but if you just want to experiment with the look you can pick up a pretty neat pair for around AU$50 from Rubi Shoes
