When a pair of shoes is as sought-after as the Isabel Marant Sneaker Wedges, it’s only a matter of time until the copycats come out of the woodwork. In footwear, there are a number of brands that seemingly make their entire living on the coattails of more expensive brands, and in this case, Ash is one of those brands. The Ash Bowie Sneaker Wedges changed very little from their French inspiration.
To tell you the truth, I have a hard time getting riled up over designers copying one and other. High-end labels flock to trends just as much as their mid-range counterparts do, and in this case in particular, the Marant sneakers are more or less impossible to put your hands on. Even if you wanted to shell out for them, good luck finding an opportunity to do so. I just wish that Ash had put more of their own spin on the idea; a sneaker wedge could go in a lot of different ways. Buy through ShopBop for $225 in orange or green.
