Isabel Marant Bekket Sneakers, $725 via Net-a-Porter
At the moment, Isabel Marant is the reigning fashion person’s fashion brand. Marant’s signature brand of Parisian off-duty-model chic keeps editors and their acolytes coming back for more, and this season, the must-have is the Isabel marant Bekket Sneaker.
I didn’t like these shoes at first because I always prefer to look to a real sneaker brand for fashionable kicks, but I must admit they’ve grown on me after seeing them grace the feet of several particularly stylish women within the industry. And if the shape looks a little bulky to you, that’s like a result of a two-inch hidden wedge. Yes. In a pair of sneakers.
We all know that my feels on sneakers with heels are, shall we say, not positive, but if you’re addicted to heels and want a casual alternative, going with a hidden wedge over an exposed one is so much classier that I can’t even full explain it. I’m assuming you already understand.
As much as I love these kicks, though, I love them in a way that makes me want to search out the perfect pair of Nike Dunks. For once, my shoe lust for a pair of $700 shoes might turn out to be legitimately affordable. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $725.
