A few utterly awful pairs of sneaker-wedges notwithstanding, I still adore the fact that a good pair of kicks is finally something that more fashionable women might be tempted to try. It’s about time a shoe trend tempted us with designs that are not only comfortable, but also not hazardous to the health of our ankles. These trends don’t come along every season, so I’m going to celebrate this one as long as I can. Perhaps I’ll do it with the Giuseppe Zanotti Python Print Sneakers on my feet!
Giuseppe was among the first to embrace the sneakers-for-ladies trend with a pair of teal snakeskin kicks last season, and this dark silver pair is a continuation of that style. For someone with a downtown look who doesn’t want to wear them same Alexander Wang shoes as every other girl on the Lower East Side, this embossed-snakeskin style is a great choice. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $650.
