When Isabel Marant inspired the high top, hidden wedge trainer trend, I wasn't one of those people who rushed out to buy a pair. I mean being 5'2 high tops tend to cut my ankles off and end up making me look shorter than I am. However the other day I was in Topshop and I decided to try on a pair and was pleasantly surprised. For someone like myself who lives in Vans and Converse on a day to day basis these sneakers are casual, comfortable and most importantly the extra height from the hidden wedge makes me feel more ladylike! - is that weird? Nevertheless, what a god send! I opted for the black pair as they go with everything and let's face it most of my clothes are black. At first I thought this trend was going to last a split second, but I have already seen a lot of designers are continuing with chic sneakers for AW12.
These sneakers are really affordable at £48 and available HERE.
I just wrote a post about this trend on the Westfield blog, you can check that out HERE.
What do you guys think of these trainers? Would you wear them? These really remind me of the trainers that people used to wear in old school Aerobics videos haha!
Lots of Love
