I’m not going to lie, I started off as a sceptic, but seeing my friend trying on and buying 2 pairs of stylish Adidas sneaker wedges on the weekend has converted me.
Combine your comfiest sneaker with the platform of a wedge heel and you have the perfect going out shoe to finish off any outfit that deserves a bit of street cred. It also really appeals to the Capetonian in me, as I don’t always feel like wearing heels but still want that extra height and shape. I’m assured that they’re comfy which is a bonus. I’m loving the stylish sneaker boot combos in subtle muted tones that add a more dressy style to this trend. Shape is also an important factor, with the streamlined lace up sneaker boot for a dressier option and the wedge sneakers with chunky bits and big velcro straps being the sportier streetwear option. Worn with skinny jeans, leggings or even shorts and skirts, these shoes will add an x factor to your outfit. Below are a few of the best that I’ve seen so far.
