At first sight, I was really feeling the sneaker wedge and I went on a hunt for them, which was very difficult. Either the shoe was way too much and/or sold out. But I found a version of the shoe from Macys for $64.
But as I was thinking more about this shoe, I began to talk myself out of buying it. Mainly because this shoe is way too trendy, I honestly don't see it being "in" for more than a couple of seasons....and that's being generous. I like to stay current with the trends but I want my pieces to be able to be "in style" for a while. The sneaker wedge reminds me of the Manolo Blahnik Timberland boot and the sneaker heels....a trend that didn't last long. If you ever owned a pair of those, I'm pretty sure you've thrown them out by now.
Either a sneaker is a sneaker or a wedge is a wedge, I don't think the two should marry. Even though I was initially on the band wagon, I think this is a shoe that I would look back on and say "what was I thinking?"
I would love to hear your thoughts, is the wedge sneaker, hot or not?
