Wedge Sneakers Available at Makemechic.com

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.

Why it is a hit

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. When asked what they love about this new trend, they say that it’s about the comfort of being able to wear heels without the strain on your legs. The padding on the sneakers provides more comfortable support on the ladies’ feet and allows more movement compared to other heeled shoes.

Pairing Bamboo wedge sneakers with miniskirts and loose tops is a good way to wear it. You can also put on skinny jeans in complementing colors with your sneakers plus little feminine accessories. Other way to wear it is by throwing in some varsity jacket for a more fashionable and sporty look.

  4. I really like these sneaker wedges but I would never wear them as I have nothing in my closet that fits with sneaker attire! I love seeing people wearing them but sadly it wouldn’t suit me at all!
