The Mysterious Case of the Hidden Wedge Sneakers

By  | 


As you may have guessed by now, I likes to shop (yes, I said likes). I'm also a little cheap frugal fiscally vigilant. While this is absolutely true when it comes to most things, I do think that there are certain wardrobe pieces that one should shell out a little more dough on as an investment in themselves and a quality wardrobe. That is a post for another day.

Today, we're talking the mysterious case of the hidden wedge sneaker. Call me late, but where did these things come from? I mean, I'm excited to see such fashion forward wedge sneakers as the wedge sneakers of my younger days resembled this hideous-ness:

No. Just… no.


Today's iteration is much less FrankenFashion and more athletic meets funky. Celebs are rockin' them which means you can find them at prices that range from Beyonce to well… me. Check them out:


From L-R: River Island Concealed Wedge High Top Sneakers, $35 | Isabel Marant Bazil suede and snake-effect sneakers, $685 | Steve Madden 'Hilight' Wedge Sneaker, $67


What say you? Are you felling the trend or is it too 90's for you?

    I happen to LOVE the wedge sneaker trend! πŸ˜€ I’m glad it is making a comeback.

    Love them! As a former sneaker-head turned girlie heel diva, they are a great combination, esp for my short height, lol! I will be adding a pair, or 3, by Fall! πŸ˜‰

    I’m not a huge fan of them just because I don’t wear heels that often (nor do I need to lol). But if I had to choose, then they would be the River Island Shoe.

    I like what I see here, I need to see them in person. However, I love wedges so I will probably have to own a pair.
