It’s undeniable that wedge sneakers are now everywhere just like wedge ankle boots. Store windows in different shopping malls are filled with sneakers that have this mysteriously hidden wedge heels. From being just boyish footwear that boasts everything about comfort, sneakers now come in extra feminine colors and details plus a height enhancing wedge. If you’re a girl who loves sneakers and wedge heels separately, how do you like this unlikely union? Do you go for it? Or just leave it alone for now?
On my way to work, I always see this gigantic billboard with a girl wearing a cute pink wedge sneakers and a huge text that says “Wedge makes you look taller”. I can’t agree more that wedge heels can make your legs appear longer and leaner. Aside from that, it is the safer and healthier alternative for stiletto shoes. But when it comes to sneakers, there is a lot of hesitation about adding a tall heel in supposedly comfortable footwear.
Another concern is how this fashion footwear can be priced as much as $600! Thankfully, more affordable brands like Bamboo shoes are also available in the market.

Wedge sneakers are being worn with edgy and ragged outfits by a lot of girls. They also wear it as a chic and fun addition to casual wear.
