Today, I wanted to talk to you guys about the infamous wedge sneakers. I know, I know, this trend has been around for a while, since like last year, but it's still around, so why not talk about it, right?
To me, this is a very love or hate thing - you either love it to pieces or hate its guts (not that it has any, but you get my point). At first, I thought it was just an atrocious trend. I've never liked those huge clunky sneakers and how they were now transformed in a manner to make them fashionable just did not sit well with me at all. So I ignored Fashion's (Fashion with a capital "F" just means in my mind the fashion magazines, bloggers, and any important people) fascination and obsession with them.
Unfortunately, I didn't have any luck finding anything. But everything happens for a reason, so I remained hopeful. Two days ago, a few weeks later, a Target opened up at a mall close by and I got myself a pair there (you can get them here if you're American)! I was literally so excited when I saw them on the shelf because a good chunk of the shoe department was sold out in my size on the day of the grand opening, so I was pretty lucky to get my hands on a pair.
I tried them on and they fit like a dream, which is one of the things that I love so much about these shoes. You get the best of both worlds with these sneakers - the comfort of a sneaker, and the height of a wedge. What more could you ask for?
I'll be doing a "3 Ways to Wear" post very soon on how I like to style them, if you're interested, so be on the lookout for that. I've been prancing around the house in these shoes for the past few days. I'm simple obsessed with them.
What about you? What do you think of these sneakers - love 'em or hate 'em? Let me know in a comment down below!
Thanks for reading!
