Wedge Sneakers for Stylin’, not Sportin’

Every once in a while a weird trend takes the world by storm. (Remember back in 2002 when everyone was flashing bedazzled thongs? How strange. Yet a whole bunch of people participated, in what can only be described as a case of mass style hysteria.)

Wedge sneakers fall into this category. Although they seem like they are completely wrong and shouldn’t work, they absolutely do. And we want some immediately, if not sooner. How better to top off a fierce outfit in a way that won’t kill your feet? Just don’t try doing any athletics in these rockin’ kicks. 


Sole Boutique “Iona II” Sneaker



These are a budget-friendly dead ringer for the Isabel Marant wedges that kicked off the whole craze. The bold coors and sharp styling are more expensive-looking than actually expensive. ($96 at Karmaloop.com)


Topshop “Acrobatics – Dalmation” Sneaker



Dalmations make terrible pets. But they make adorable shoes! These aren't made of _actual_ dalmations, of course. That would be terrible. This is getting a little off-track, isn't it? ($90 at Nordstrom)


Ash Cool Wedge Sneaker



The delicate rosy pink color of these sneakers offsets the tough styling. Very '80s. ($250 at Ashfootwearusa.com)


Jeffrey Campbell “Teramo Spike” Sneaker



Comfy as well as a valuable self-defense tool. ($224.95 at Solestruck.com)


Steve Madden “Hilight” Sneakers



Bling, blang, blung. The only problem you'll have while wearing these is that you'll have to constantly keep stealing them back from Kanye West. (When you wear these shoes, you automatically become BFFs with Yeezy.) ($149.95 at Stevemadden.com)


ASOS “Deny” Studded Wedge High Top



The olive green color and tough hardware give these sneaks a military-esque edge. ($73.88 at Asos.com)


GoJane Suede Canvas Wedge Sneakers



These might just be our favorite of the bunch…cute, affordable, and they come in a dazzling array of colors including cobalt blue, hot pink, and sunny yellow. ($24.90 at Gojane.com)


Xhilaration “Sandra” Wedge High-Top



Sleek and greige, these are like your fancy sneakers. For fancy sneaker-wearing occasions. ($29.99 at Target)


Giuseppe Zanotti Wedge Zip Sneaker



If Kim Kardashian went kamping… These luxe wedges are like outdoorsy shoes for people whose only experience with the outdoors is walking from door to limo. Very 1-percent of you. ($595 at Barneys New York)
