Trending in Fashion: The Hidden Wedge Sneaker
It seems to me like the hidden sneaker wedge just kind of came out of nowhere. I guess you could say that the trend really 'sneaked' up on me. Yikes, bad pun. I apologize.
In any case, the hidden sneaker wedge is officially the 'it' shoe of the summer, as seen on celebs and street style chicsters alike. The Isabel Marant 'Willow' wedge sneaker is probably the most often spotted style of this shoe. Check out celebs like Ashlee Simpson (1), Dakota Fanning (2) and Rashida Jones (3) all sporting it:
Even with these very style crush worthy ladies wearing the shoe, I can't say that I am fully on board. I just can't seem to wrap my head around such a crazy hybrid shoe. I just don't get the appeal. If I wanted to wear sneakers, I'd wear sneakers. If I wanted to wear wedges, I'd wear wedges. Never in my life have I ever thought to myself, 'gee, I wish I could wear both sneakers and wedges at the same time'.
But maybe that's just me? I guess I do kind of like the idea of a comfy shoe that offers some height. Though, I think I'd like any shoe I wore to be more stylish, less casual. I will admit that I do find the the whole hidden wedge thing kind of cool.

Every woman would look better in heels or wedge sandals than these - that's a given.
I love them! They'd be perfect to wear with jeans!
not something even on my style radar!
I love high top sneakers but these are just too much for me. They look nice but if I want to wear a wedge, I'll wear a wedge. lol.
Very CUTE, but just not me. :(
Sooo not into it. It reminds me of boy shoes, which isn't cute on girls!
I love these! I actually have a pair of wedge sneakers and they are so comfortable.
They're not my style but I did do a double take at no 4! Not gonna lie :p
