Standing On The Wedge — Are You Up On The Wedge Sneaker Trend?
This season, even the sportiest, most casual footwear has been elevated to new heights — literally. The wedge sneaker trend that emerged in the 1980s has been resurrected, so that a wealth of suede, patent leather, nylon, and canvas styles have been given a style boost thanks to hidden or exposed wedge heels averaging 3″ to 4″ in height. Some of the season’s styles feature classic lace-up patterns while others are adorned with oversize velcro straps or thin buckled straps.
