WHAT’S WITH THE WEDGES?
Enough with the heels and on with the sneakers. But wait, these sneakers are not your ordinary high top sneakers. They have secret hidden wedges at the back of the heels. Clever? Tell me about it!
Still want to look like you have long legs but stilettos are starting to kill your feet and back? The feeling is mutual.
Luckily, Isabel Marant, a native Parisian and uber famous designer that launched her label back in 1994, came up with such a cool chic idea. She told Fashionista about the inspiration behind her ‘loved by all celebs’ wedge sneakers, called Bekett, Bazil and Willow, “It’s something I did since I was a teenager. I would cut up cork and put pieces of cork into my sneakers because I wanted to look taller. And I always thought about this, what I was doing when I was young, and I thought I should really achieve something around this idea. Sneakers are so comfortable but at the same time it’s not very elegant. To have a little heel in it makes a difference, it gives you legs-I mean, I know women, I am a woman, so I know what we are searching for!"
Well ladies, good luck of finding these sneakers, because they become such a best seller and continued to sell out despite its almost US$600 price tag.
