Trend to Try: Wedge Sneakers

“Equal parts confidence and nonchalance—that’s what makes this Gallic girl so enviable…” – Vogue

Native Parisian Isabel Marant (pictured above) has answered our shoe woe prayers. The designer has developed the perfect silhouette for the girl who used to be a crazy sneaker head and is now a woman who has refined her taste but still desires a pair of trainers. The Bekket high-top suede sneaker has literally flown off the shelves since its debut earlier this year. Marant has spurred a trend and suddenly Velcro-strapped wedge look-alike sneakers are popping up everywhere.

However the latter is not of the inferior kind, Marant has fierce competition offered here at Rime. Nike’s Fast Love Sky Hi Wedge Sneakers offer the same cool look in an around the way girl feel, the female who wears this is stylish and still appreciates a good classic Nike shoe. The latest drop includes the  Nike Dunk Sky Hi Liberty wedge in olive featuring Arthur Liberty fabric aesthetics throughout.

The explosive, Olympic inspired fall collection of Adidas Originals x Opening Ceremony includes two wedge sneakers. The Lace-Up BMX Cycling Wedge Sneaker in white features a floral print and padded ankle while the black features leather paneling and a cool green stripe along the bottom. Think Marant meets Nike.

Modern Vice’s Capri Wedge Sneaker on the other hand offers a more casual look with their multiple colorways and thick white sole. Great for running errands and shopping in style.

Comfort, height and posture of a traditional heel paired with a silhouette that can take right into the fall? Ladies, kiss your flats goodbye and Shop the looks!
