I’ve never been a big sneaker fan. I own exactly one pair of running shoes, strictly for the possibility that I may be invited to do a team-building excercise on a ropes course somewhere, someday. You have to be prepared. I don’t own any Chuck Taylors. I never jumped on that grey New Balance train. Was that a “thing” at your school? I don’t even own any Sperrys. Yes, I know they’re boat shoes, but since they have rubber shoes and laces, they fall under the “sneaker” genus, to me.
But, I have to say, as crazy as it is, I’m very interested in this whole wedge sneaker trend. I know, I know. But, I actually think they look cute in a “Hey, I’m out there in fashion, yet want to be comfortable” -kinda way. Throw them on with a a pair of skinny jeans or leggings and a basic top and you’ve gone from blah to interesting. Still casual, yet super cool. They’ve also been looking pretty hip with shorts this summer. Hesitant? Go for a neutral taupe pair. A little braver? I highly recommend you snag up those leopard-print Rebecca Taylors. Just want to go for it? Add some color or print. See how cool they look on Sincerely, Jules?
What do you think? Would you wear wedge sneakers? It’s okay, not all trends are for everyone.
