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)
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)
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)
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)
