Metallics – check; zippers – check; laces – check; wedges – check. Now these are some funky shoes. With fashionable sneakers and sneaker wedges becoming a rising trend this season, Guiseppe Zanotti’s Metallic Wedge Sneakers are edgy and dare I say even chic.
Resembling the look of a high-top sneakers with laces and rubber soles, from the front it is hard to tell that these are wedges. The metallic leather and the side and back zipper decoration are the perfect combination for that sporty fashionista.
What I love about these shoes are their comfort and versatility. These would definitely be my choice of running shoes. Ok, maybe you wouldn’t want to run a marathon in these, but you could probably walk all day in these and not break a sweat. Top your outfit off with jeans or leggings and a leather and you’re set. The only downfall to these sneaker wedges? They’re retailing for $695 – a bit much, don’t you think?
But, this week’s post is inspired by one woman’s shoe catastrophe. Last week, I received a frantic text from my Aunt MaryGrace saying: “OMG! You have to blog about the importance of sensible shoes at sporting events.” As it turns out, she went to the US Open and broke one of her sandal straps while walking to the stadium, which is a situation in itself. To make matters worse, while leaving the stadium at the end of the match, my aunt’s other strap broke. The long walk back to the car was like her own walk of shame, with two plastic bags on her feet as shoes! Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures, right? In a time like this, my Aunt could have used her own pair of Zanotti’s sneaker wedges. To ensure you have no catastrophes at your next sporting event, grab your pair of Zanotti’s at Shopbop.com
