On Center Stage: Wedge Sneakers. Getting One or Not?

by - Saturday, April 06, 2013

I adore wedge shoes and sneakers but having these two mixed in one shoe?  Uncertain, I am.

Wedge sneakers, as they are referred to, began taking center stage sometime in 2012.  As a typical shoe-aholic, I should have gotten myself a pair to feed my curiosity but I did not.  I don’t know.  I wasn’t that head over heels with the wedge sneaker craze.

Huge brands sell them – Nike, Puma, Reebok, Skechers, Guess, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Geox, Coach, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Aldo, Lacoste, Anne Klein, MICHAEL Michael Kors, French Connection --- and the list just goes on and on…  Name a shoe brand and you’ll most probably end up finding their own styles of wedge sneakers.

Anyway, as I visited my favorite shoe boutique downtown, I spotted this wedge sneaker corner and to my surprise, I found myself amazed and bedazzled.  The who used to be uncertain me got suddenly –-- Hmmm… they look cute! 
Despite the fact that I liked a few pairs, I went home with nothing.  Price-wise, they weren’t that expensive.  However, cute as they were,  I could not convince myself that getting one would be worth it.

Am I getting one or not?  A couple of weeks have come and gone since the day I have gotten a closer look at the wedge sneakers.  Up to this point, the desire level hasn’t yet gone up from “like” to “really really like”.  So we’ll see!

How about you?  Have you purchased a pair [or pairs] of wedge sneakers?  If yes, love ‘em, love ‘em not or so-so?  If you haven’t yet, are you planning on getting one soon or are you not at all interested?
