Sooo Not My Type… But I Love Wedge Sneakers

trend logo3Ladies, have you ever fallen for a man that was completely different from all the men you’ve liked in the past? Did you wonder what it was that drew you to him when he obviously wasn’t your “type”? You couldn’t put your finger on it; he just had a certain je ne sais quoi?

That’s how I feel about wedge sneakers. I’m not a sneakers girl AT ALL. If you had asked me what my least favourite shoe was, I would’ve said sneakers before you even finished asking the question.

But then wedge sneakers came into town, caught my eye and stole my heart… and I fell for them. Now I keep feeling that familiar urge to get my hands on them and I can almost already feel the thrill and satisfaction of making them mine.

You see, wedge sneakers are exciting (so many prints, colours and textures) but they seem dependable too (no sky-high heels of super skinny straps). If that’s not an attractive combination, I don’t know what is.

Initially I was looking for five or six shoes for this post but I got a little carried away and found a dozen I really liked. I promise I’ll be more controlled when I go to buy a pair and I won’t buy a dozen.

There are the more neutral ones:

Then the bright colours, camo, leopard, zebra and so on:

Let me know your favourite pair(s).

    I totally understand you, recently I’ve been fiending for a pair. My fave is the black and camouflage pair.
