Even I acknowledge that the idea of a high-heeled sneaker is just so incredibly ridiculous, and yet, I cannot turn away. Quite honestly, I've wanted a pair since my teens and even though I'm now in my 30s, I apparently haven't outgrown the idea. OK, I admit, I owned a pair of those stiletto converse versions from the late 90s-early 2000s. They were very similar to these with a more classic-shaped heel:

I likely (or hopefully?) won't purchase a pair of wedge sneakers knowing that it is probably a short-lived trend, but boy, am I tempted. I tried on a Steve Madden "knock-off" version in the mall yesterday and they were oh so cute, but true to Steve Madden form, oh so hurty.
Ash has several different pairs, but I'm partial to the Bowie style. They have hefty price of $225 (although they don't cost as much as Isabel Marant). They also come in several other colors:
Urbanoutfitters and Jildorshoes carries a few colors that are not yet sold out. Check it out here and here.
As a side note, my mom is staying with me for the next three weeks, so I'm not sure how much blogging I can do while she's here. Posts may be very sporadic until she's gone.
What do you think of wedge sneakers? I know that there are some strong opinions out there on these. Love 'em or hate 'em?
