Isabel Marant Betty Sneaker Wedges, $680 via Net-a-Porter
I’ve never been a huge fan of this look, but the sheer number of people who find our site every day by typing the term “Isabel Marant sneakers” into Google would indicate that I’m in the minority when it comes to the Isabel Marant Sneaker Wedges. Not only that, but seems like half of the high-profile fashion industry has been photographed in a pair of Marant’s trainers, and although last season’s velcro-closured version is long gone from store shelves, the Isabel Marant Betty Sneakers are now available for those of us who know how to tie our shoes.
Word to the wise: If you want to pull off this look as “casual-sporty chic” instead of “nursing home orthopedic shoes,” you’re going to need a tan. That’s just how white sneakers work, particularly white leather sneakers. It’s been so long since they were cool that the mind automatically goes to one place, and that is not a stylish place. The contrast of tan skin and pale shoes would be a boon to the look, so keep your Mystic Tan budget in mind before you purchase. Price is $680 via Net-a-Porter.
