Kickin’ It

So this may be a slightly controversial post, because today, I will be talking about – wedge sneakers.

When I first heard about the concept I was horrified, and like most fashion trends I come around to them.  Granted I started out with a $20 pair from Target, but I really like these (although my mom and sisters are currently trying to talk me out of them – thoughts?!).

I find these to be the most COMFORTABLE shoes, and while I’m not all aboard the “wear your Nike Frees with your brunch outfit movement,” I am working on introducing them to somewhat classic outfits – because it is very ideal to run your weekend errands in these (not gonna lie).

I have a few personal “rules” when it comes to wearing these shoes:

  1. Do not pull your wedge sneakers out from the 90’s – you know… this and this pair? It’s ALL about the HIDDEN wedge.
  2. Dressing is all about proportion (general rule) – but because the sneaker can be a bit bulky on your foot, leggings or skinny jeans are a must.  A large sweatshirt, or longer jacket on top helps to balance out the look.
  3. Use this look for errand running/sporting events.  Do not rock wedge sneakers at work, dinners out (unless you are ordering your meal from a counter) or anywhere you don’t want to deal with people commenting on said sneakers (it’s going to happen).
