Sneaky Trend to Shop Now: Sneaker Wedges

Fashion industry folk are not known for their love of comfortable footwear. Actually, a few seasons ago it would have been unthinkable to wear your running shoes around during fashion week (unless you're Taylor Tomasi Hill and then you may proceed). But this season, every editor and fashion industry insider is running around wearing *gasp* sneakers. Of course they're not just regular old gym shoes. They've got a little something extra. About three inches of hidden wedge, to be exact. And we have the doyenne of all things cool, Isabel Marant to thank for it: She kicked off the trend with her covetable Willow sneaker wedges. Sigh, only Marant could get a bunch of stiletto addicts to ditch their sky-high heels for a bunch of comfy sneaks. Click through for our favorite sneaker wedges, in stores now.

But this season, every editor and fashion industry insider is running around wearing *gasp* sneakers. Of course they're not just regular old gym shoes. They've got a little something extra. About three inches of hidden wedge, to be exact. And we have the doyenne of all things cool, Isabel Marant to thank for it: She kicked off the trend with her covetable Willow sneaker wedges, which retail for $760--that is if you've been lucky enough to snap them up already: The shoe has been so sought-after that your best bet for scoring the covetable kick is to start scouring eBay, where prices seem to hover at a cool grand.
