Fashion Frenemy: The Sneaker Wedge

If you’re like me, the first time you saw a sneaker wedge you were disgusted. They were truly cringeworthy. But overtime, a secret crush started to develop. Any spoken words were of absolute hate, but your heart had a soft spot for them. Of course, you would never buy them because a) what would you even wear them with, and b) that would make your secret crush not so secret.
Until one day…
I walked into Target (it’s a blackhole, am I right?) and those awful yet wonderful sneaker wedges were on sale for $10. Suddenly my “it’s complicated” status turned into “in a relationship.” I stepped into that size 8 sneaker wedge and felt just like Cinderella (minus the fact that a handsome prince wasn’t putting my sneaker wedge on me)…and perfect fit. True story.
Don’t judge me just yet.
Everyone can pull off the sneaker wedge  – they look great with leggings, skinny jeans, and a personal favorite: the boyfriend jean. I’m also excited to try them out this spring with some casual dresses and cut-off shorts. And you clearly don’t have to break the bank for a pair. There are a ton of great options out there, but feel free to splurge on a pair from Michael Kors or Jeffrey Campbells (loving the burgundy).
So for all the sneaker wedge haters out there, I have one last thought for you: how can you beat a shoe that gives you the comfort of a sneaker PLUS the added benefit of a heel?
