trendy or tacky? [wedge sneakers]


Wedge sneakers have taken over runways and streets around the world and I want to know what the big hype is. When have tennis shoes ever been considered a fashion statement unless you are in the 90's and/or a hip hop artist? Someone put a wedge in these sneakers and suddenly it's a trend?
I think there must have been an outbreak in models with sore feet because I hear these babies are super comfy- and I'm all about comfort.
Now don't get me wrong, the trend is weird enough that some people can rock it. And by some people, I do not mean myself.

What do you think of this new trend? Hot or not? Either way, I wouldn't invest too much in these. It's a trend that I don't see lasting long (I hope!).

definitely tacky in my books..I'm not a fan of those shoes whether there's a wedge in them or not haha.

Kim @ wanderlustee.com said...

well, the ones in the pics just by themselves: tacky

but the ones that the models are wearing...i dont know, they didn't look like wedge sneakers to me? i live in nyc and taught in the bronx for 5 years so wearing sneakers like that is just totally normal to me ... but again, NOT with the wedge!

I vote for tacky!

I don't like them, but I get it. The point of them is to make your legs look longer and your feet look smaller, without making it look too dressed up.

I wouldn't choose to wear them, but I understand why other people like it.

I've seen the first few in person and some people can really pull them off. Definitely not something I'd go out of my way to purchase but if given to me they might be fun to rock to go shopping or some place casual like that.

Not so cute. The first time I saw them was on a reality show I was watching and I was horrified. Gotsta go.

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I actually don't mind that first pair BUT I am not a fan personally either. I'd manage to break my ankle I'm sure lol!

Amanda said...

Horrible. I mean tacky duhhh :) I feel strongly that if you have to ask it's never good lol

Michelle said...

The first pair isn't bad, but I wouldn't wear them.

Nikki Mitchell said...

I actually like them...but I havent tried any own for myself so I guess it would depend on how they look on my feet.

My sneaker of choice has always been chucks so I think I may stick with those :)

Tack-Y!

THE mom said...

I'm on the fence with this trend...all one color seems cool if dressed up well. I did the whole sneaker heel trend back in the day. Think high top with a stiletto heel.

I´m definitely not a fan of those sneaker wedges!! And I don´t know why people are buying them ?! But this is about taste and tastes luckily differ! =)

I´m new to the blogger world and Í would be happy if you would like to visit my blog. Share your opinion, how you like it, give me some advice =) And maybe follow =)

Take care !

I say tacky!

Mallory said...

Yikes, you definitely won't see me in a pair of those! But it takes all kinds so more power to the people who wear them:)

Breenah said...

They remind me of the high heeled Timberlands. And I don't like those either.

smk053078 said...

xo,
Shanna

Sarah @ Family Darr said...

Rachael Ray was wearing the black ones on her Monday show!. I think those are cute!

Mimi said...
