Wedge sneaker trend

I have been trying for months to get my hands on a pair of wedge sneakers since seeing the Isabel Marant sneakers debut last year. I finally found a pair locally, I have had such bad luck with customs recently and my international purchases getting ‘lost’, that I was not willing to take a chance on these babies. I had spotted them on the Asos site, and Steve Madden also recently stocked them. The prices were a bit steep for a trend I could not wear for work and only on weekends, and I happily found them on Zando at a fraction of the cost.

When I received them, I was a bit uncertain. I was not sure if I quite liked them, and thought I would have to style them to get the feel of wedge sneakers. I am a traditional converse or gym sneakers kind of girl, but this version of street style is a definite do :-)

Here’s my look post, my pair was inspired by the Forever 21 and Bowie wedge sneakers. It would be great  to hear your thoughts on this trend.
