{Sneaker Envy}

Trend Alert!
The Wedge Sneaker

I haven't seen a footwear trend this polarizing since the gladiator sandal boot or gem encrusted Crocs.
Isabel Marant is credited with debuting them during her show last year and since then they have been seen all over Paris sidewalks and on the feet of supermodels dashing through airports.

For Wedge Sneaker detractors like Tory Hoen, they say the trend is the worst of both worlds: '...the sloppy look of a sneaker and the discomfort of a high heel...'  But for those (like myself) embracing the look they are just the ticket. A 3-inch hidden wedge packing a boost of height combined with an easy to maneuver-in athletic shoe. Usually hit with funky pops of color and manufactured from luxurious suedes and calfskin leathers they scream to be worn with skinny jeans or leggings. Add it all up and what's not to love? Sure they may be one of those items in your closet you look back on in 10 years and cringe at the thought of ever having worn but who cares? 

I love the Ash Wedge Bowie in Fuxia suede.
