So, yeah, turns out I like sneakerwedges. After giving girls like Afro and Stéphanie a hard time about them for MONTHS because they were with it from the get go while I am a loser who only likes trends after they've basically run their course, I'm convinced I actually DO need a pair of sneakerwedges.
I guess I just didn't want to like them for their trend-factor? I waited and waited until I was sure that sneaker wedges actually are a shoe that will contribute to your wardrobe with some longevity. A shoe that isn't just a statement, but a piece that will give an extra shine to the items you already own and love. I hate it when a garment sort of forces you to buy more stuff to be able to style it in a pleasing manner. I don't know about you, but I shop to find the PERFECT item to complete my PERFECT dream wardrobe, so creating even MORE of a demand feels very counter-intuitive.
SO. After looking around and browsing my options, I figured out I want
- a white sole (I don't like the tan sort of rubber sole a lot of the sneakerwedges have)
- a big, puffy shape rather than a more refined outline, cuz I like my sneakers to look BIG and OLDSKOOL
- a dark color all over, except for maybe some details and the sole. I really like the look of a dark, big, puffy sneaker wedge paired with a simple outfit, with skinnies or a skirt.
Here are some of the options I like.
First three pairs are all easily found in several Ebay shops if you search for 'black sneaker wedge', last pair is the ASOS Deny sneaker. What do you think? I'm still not sure which one to pick, or if I'm even going for one of these options. I'm very fussy when it comes to details you know. Not puffy enough, not a white sole, too triangular... ARG I'm so tiresome.

I like how they sort of make you look like you're wearing legwarmers :D And let me tell you, they are CRAZY comfortable. I just tried some on when I went shopping a while ago, and I seriously couldn't tell I was wearing a wedge most of the time. And my feet are super whiny, so that's saying something! How do you feel about sneaker wedges?
