You’ve probably seen Beyoncé sporting a different type of shoe on her “Love on Top” music video. Instead of the usual classy pair of five inch heels with her leotard, she dons a pair of Isabel Marant Bekket high-top suede sneakers. But those aren’t just sneakers; it’s a fusion between sneakers and wedges.
Before these super casual heels became a popular trend amongst American celebrities and the runway, Korean pop star girl groups set the trend two years ago, sporting these comfy heels for their music videos and publicity events. Girls everywhere in Asia began sporting sneaker wedges for the fashionable cute casual look. While the trend is kicking up over here in the west, Kpop groups like SNSD (Girls’ Generation), 2NE1, Wonder Girls, F(X) and more still wear these fashionable sneakers even today.
Looks are not deceiving; these shoes are actually very comfortable. The arch support for these wedges reduces any foot or ankle pains. They are definitely much more comfortable than high heels. These shoes not only add up to three inches of height but they also make your legs look longer and slimmer, just like Beyoncé’s sexy legs. Wedges offer better support than stilettos and high heels. You are less likely to fall wearing wedges because it helps maintain your balance.
Make a fashion statement with your casual everyday outfit or wear a pair for a cute casual date. You don’t need to cash out hundreds of dollars for Isabel Marant Bekket sneaker wedges. There are different styles of sneaker wedges too. If you want to go for the urban hip-hop look, there are sneaker wedges that look almost like Air Force One’s. And for those who want their sneakers to have a more feminine charm, there are sneaker heels that are simple and less chunky with a cute girly flare.
