I'm not particularly trendy - I used to like fashion but have got into a bit of a rut since having DS. Am trying to get back on track a bit more lately so have started reading some fashion blogs.
Have seen a few people wearing wedge trainers, and I'm intrigued. Are they likely to be around for a while, or am I too late to the party with them? What else can I wear them with other than skinny jeans? Also, the ones I've seen were Fly, are there any cheap alternatives around?
I have been wanting a pair for ages but wondered if they would be a passing phase. However, I just recently bought two pairs (cheapish off of eBay and some kurt Geigers) and I love them! Make my feet look smaller, me look taller and they are so comfy and yet nice enough to wear a lot of the time. I will get a lot of wear out of them and will bridge the winter and summer seasons nicely
i used to have a pair of wedge trainers in the 70's, as a 10 year old they were my most favorite pair of shoes, they were blue with rainbow stripes on the heel. am quite taken with the wedge trainers around now, would like a pair for nostalgia sake, cannot afford ash though. i like wedges, am only short, and struggle with heels but can walk ok in wedges.
Love mine Ash Bowles plain black wear them with skinnys, tube maxi skirt, denim min with opaques under baby boot cuts ( can't see them then though) find them very comfortable, leg lengthening and versatile. They truly are a marmite item though. I would buy a pair try them on at home with a few outfits and decide that way.
