I have just bought these from our local discount shop for £20:

They are khaki green and you can't really see the wedge. I tried them on with my skinnies and thought they looked quite cool. You can't tell they have a wedge.

I am still not quite sure and can take them back if I need to.

What do you think?

I think they are adorable!

I don't understand why you'd take a sports shoe and add a heel. Seems crazy to me. But if you like them then buy them.

I'm a trainer collector..Hence my name.
If you like them then go for it.
For me it would be a no.

I wear Nike sky highs every day and also have a few pairs of hidden wedge Converse. I love them!

Mandmdirect sell various other styles really cheaply. If your jeans pretty much cover them then I don't see the problem though I wear wedge trainers with skirts/dresses too.

They're a bit dated.
Whether that bothers you or not is up to you.

Is the wedge flat or is there a slope? I’m asking because I have a foot problem and am always on the look out for flatform style.

If you like them, wear them! If they suit your silhouette and you feel good in them then that's important.

If you are asking if they are fashionable then no, they're about 5 years out of date.
