On second thought, sneaker wedges are completely growing on me. Maybe it's because they're in every editorial... dunno, but I love the chunky shoe silhouette ala the 1980s. I'm gonna find a pair of Marants!That's a promise.

haha I think I got the stockholm syndrome, I didn't like them when my best friend got some 5 years ago, didn't like them at first when I saw them on kate bosworth, but now I'm just dying to find some inexpensive ones!

I don't get these wedge sneakers, especially the hidden wedge sneakers. I have yet to see any pair of wedge sneakers I actually like among today's trendy wedge sneakers. Wedge sneakers are not on my "hate" list; just that there are very few wedge sneakers today that I like.

what do you guys think about these:

do you think they are hidden wedges? or is the wedge too obvious?

I understand the appeal of wedge sneakers, but I am just not sold on these hidden heel wedge sneakers. For the ones in Post #22, I'm on the "nay" side for those sneakers. I just don't like these all that much while most others are all in love with these hidden wedge sneakers. The colors of the sneakers or even the shoelaces that go with those.

Just can't get into these sneakers. Maybe if they were better styled and not styled like the typical '80s style or early '90s style bulls people like bringing back 'til death do us part, maybe I'd like them more.

I was reticent at first, but I have to say I like them in a more casual/less athletic variation. It's all about the styling, but really, I do not want to see this with floaty skirts like Kate B. wore. And, I must say, they are very very comfortable!

after about a year of debating, i got the ones in #22 in the olive suede and they do have a hidden wedge...
i like the fact that they look like sneakers, not some sort of space age moon boot...
and i really don't like the ones with velcro...

i'm thinking about getting these nike dunks as seen on candice. if i can find them (they may be sold out)


dailymail.co.uk

my isabel marant knockoffs by steve madden have a teensy tiny hole in the sole. they may be going bye-bye soon.

i actually like the velcro. it makes getting up and going fast. and my converse keep getting unlaced!

To me, the only nice looking pairs are from Isabel Marant. I think she did the trend the best. The shoe is elegant but casual and still feminine. Anything else I just see as a blatant rip off of hers.
