everyday, i see at least one girl wearing the same ones really well
and i so enjoy it. it's definitely the shoe of the times in new york,
and not just with the fashion crowd.

the Nike Sky Highs and the Marant Bekkets are the only ones which get it right.

tons of other brands do them, but they're essentially wedge boots, STYLED to make them look like sneakers.

the great thing about the Bekket was that the heel was really HIDDEN and well camouflaged.

laika- i am shocked!


but i like them...
they are so similar to the Y-3 ones from last season that i mentioned earlier...
i love all the different black textures and the white strip at the bottom...

can't say i've seen anyone wearing them though...

what are you wearing them with?

website says they run small...
do they run small or just small for sneakers?
ie- i usually size down 1/2 a size in sneakers but maybe just a normal size would work on these...

not that i have a clue how i would wear them...
...

laika, those were so good on you! probably the best of any that i have seen, much more understated than y-3 and marant. the slimness of the profile made your legs look super long.

thanks, lucky.

soft, i would say they are true to size. i am right in between a 6.5 and a 7 and I got a 7.
they actually felt a bit roomy at first, but with socks (i wear little cushy athletic socks with them) they are perfect.

i've been wearing them with a pair of baggy Y's pants and a cropped +J windbreaker
(i think you were with me when i bought this, actually).
also with leggings...they look best on me when a little skin shows at the ankle, so bottoms that hit above the ankle are ideal.
i'm going to wear them with my drkshdw pod shorts too, once the weather warms up.

the Y-3's
just for reference...:p
i freaking love them like a crazy person...

now i remember...
i would have gotten them but not so good for my small ankles...
so my friend got them instead...
it was really annoying...
i must have blocked that part out...
guess i'm not meant to wear this sort of thing...


i agree that a little skin showing looks nice...
probably makes them a bit more feminine...

^cute. they are sleeker than the nikes, for sure.
the dunks really look like old school high tops, which is why i like them so much.

i hope that friend of yours is wearing them! :p

sounds accurate---
if you wear them with the RO shorts, you'll look very much like a goth basketball player...
...

i hope she's wearing them too!

^i love them so much and want them too. but they are expensive which makes me overthink to purchase them again and again.

Wedges will always find a place in my heart. Wedge sneakers, however, not so much; and especially not like the famous ones like those "Bekket" sneakers from Isabel Marant. I have actually eased up a bit on wedge sneakers. There just aren't too many wedge sneakers I actually like even while most other femmes are (no pun intended) head-over-heels in love with wedge sneakers.
