Sneaker Wedges. Ugly or Awesome? Discuss.

Marc Jacobs (sorry, marc by) made it hot. Jeffrey Campbell ran with it. Isabel Marant is on board, and so is Guiseppe ZanottiSolestruck has only heels in their “sneaker” category, and The Daily Beast calls it the “Ugliest Shoe of the Summer,” but do we trust their opinions? Though we’re naturally inclined to throw a heel on most things, the sneaker wedge is a little confusing. On the version that’s become the true “It” shoe, the heel is hidden. It kind of just looks like a high top, only you get taller in it. So… are we just condoning… sneakers? Look at the options, and discuss. 

The sneaker wedge was hot enough for Tommy Ton to snap during Fashion Week. (This blogger was ahead of the sneaker game, clearly).

Now see what other wedges are hiding up these sneakers’ heels.
