Are Open Toe Wedge Sneakers The Next Big Thing Or Just A Big No-No?
April 12, 2013
I was recently walking the expansive shoe floor in Macy’s here in N.Y.C. when an unusual pair of shoes caught my eye: these Boutique 9 Nerine Leather Wedge Sneakers ($180). Full disclosure: I own two pairs of Isabel Marants, so I’m all about the wedge sneaker trend. I also happen to love colorblock, so you can understand why the kicks above had me intrigued.
After I saw the sneaks, I did what any undecided shopper does–I turned to social media. I posted a pic of the sneakers on Instagram and most of the SHEfinds fans downright hated them. Next, I went to Facebook and to my amazement the majority of fans there hated the shoes, too. Now either my shoe judgment is seriously impaired or some people just can’t see the potential in these cool kicks just yet. I like to believe it’s the latter because the more I see these sneakers, the more I like them. You, too? Glad I’m not alone.
