Have You Jumped on the Wedge Sneaker Trend Yet? Maybe Isabel Marant Can Convince You

December 9, 2012 • By Robert

If there is one constant in fashion, it’s that it is always changing and ever evolving. One trend that really burned up the street scene this past spring was the wedge sneaker.

Up until very recently, women’s sneakers were limited to similar adaptations from popular men’s styles. Ladies, I think it’s safe to say, you now have something completely all your own!

A stylish cross between a platform wedge boot and a tennis sneaker, Isabel Marant’s offering achieved a cultlike following amongst A-list celebs and all-around fashion followers the world over. Her vision was clear — maintain the comfort of a tennis sneaker while keeping the chic sophistication of a wedge boot. The result? Sheer brilliance.

Anne Hathaway kept it stylishly simple by combining her Isabel Marant with a brown trench and medium-washed fitted denims. She also threw in some chic accessories — a pair of aviator sunglasses and a printed scarf to finish.

Available in a myriad of color combinations, these wedge sneakers can easily be worn in just about any casual outfit. Try this look for optimum comfort with some urban street edge. To combine with your Isabel Marant sneakers, go for a muted color sweatshirt, either a puffer or denim vest, and a pair of dark-colored leggings. Complete your look with a snapback baseball cap for that 90s-inspired sports-luxe appeal.
