the wedge sneaker: now those are some hot kicks…

Remember here when I said the nineties were making there way back in a new way? You remember those sneakers with the heel right? Everyone was wearing them back in the day (including my sister and I)- and yes, they were awful and to this day I wonder what we were thinking.  Now there is actually good-looking update. The wedge sneaker- shoes that look like trainers but have a hidden wedge inside.  It all started with the French accessory designer Isabel Marant. While Marant’s sneaks are impeccable, most of her styles are upwards of $600- who can afford that for a pair of sneakers?? (minus Kanye, of course)  So, I have complied a little cheat sheet of my favorite, more affordable options. I want every style in every color.  I mean, who doesn’t want to get away with wearing a cute pairs of kicks everyday? I could walk 5 miles in these shoes. Genius.
