This spring one of the hottest looks to hit the runway was the sneaker wedge. When Isabel Marant debuted her Spring 2012 collection the shoe immediately sold out, leaving every designer under the sun scrambling to create their own version of the trendiest sneaker out. Instantly the style became one of the hottest trends to be seen with this summer and is sure to make an impression right into Fall 2012.
In no time these sneakers became a must have for celebrities like Rihanna, Lindsey Lohan and Ciara and quickly trickled down to mainstream women everywhere. You can’t help but love a shoe that provides the best of both worlds. With the sneaker wedge you get an ultra-comfy sneaker, while still maintaining the sexy height we love from heels minus the agonizing pain. Besides the added height and comfort these unique sneaks give, they also provide an effortless edge to any ensemble.
Spikes, chains and buckles with multiple straps will blur the line between a sneaker and the sneaker wedge. The prices range anywhere from $25.99 for the budget conscious diva to the indulgently pricer designer brands that can peak to $1,000 dollar mark.
So how will the ultra-CHIC rock this look for the upcoming fall season? Some of the best ways to make a head turning statement can be with leather leggings, a baggy silk shirt and printed scarf loosely wrapped around your neck, or pairing your favorite skinny jeans with a chic leather jacket and tons of chunky jewelry.
No matter how you wear them, this is sure to be this fall’s secret weapon to looking casually cool while staying fashion forward effortlessly.
