So, we all know that I love a good pair of chuck converses (I even wrote about it here). They are practical, classic, and cute. It's a safe go to, for sure. But apart from those (and the Adio skater shoes from highschool, which I have since removed from my wardrobe) I am not a sneaker person. I tend to lean more towards brogues or flats when I am looking for comfort.

This past year, the trend of wedge/hidden heeled sneakers have sprouted (thanks to designer Isabel Marant). I have decided not to participate in the trend because it is much too difficult to pull off. Seriously, I have seen people not pull it off, it's distatsteful. Julie from Sincerely Jules absolutely nails the wedge sneakers, every time. Effortlessly cool, your eye doesn't automatically zoom in at her feet, she makes it all flow naturally. Again, good luck trying this if you aren't this girl!

Though I have respectfully declined the healed sneaker, I stumbled across this on Pinterest and FELL IN LOVE. I think I showed this picture to Chad 3 different times and in a stern voice said "I want these shoes". Unfortunately, I can't find these retro looking Nikes anywhere. At least not in that beloved maroon color. *Drool*. I would call this style a "City Sneaker". It's a fitting name, I'd say.

I would also wear these sneakers. So cool.
