Once and for all, I think we can finally put the sneaker wedge to bed. Every brand on Earth has done one by now, and I’m hoping that now that we’ve all got that out of our collective system, we can focus on something much cooler: regular sneakers. And while I’m always a proponent of picking up a pair of Nike Dunks instead of a pair of designer kicks, the latter has become very much a trend among the fashion set, so I’m here to talk about it.
Designer sneakers cost just as much as any designer shoe, and if you pick carefully, they provide just as much style. The hard part for most grown women, of course, is how you style them. If you’re going to go with any of the high-top styles we’ve featured below, I’d suggest going with something short – short shorts, a mini dress, anything to elongate the leg line. The bonus, of course, is that you’ll stay plenty cool (and plenty functional) for summer.
