A couple weeks ago, I posted my reasoning on the logic behind wedged sneakers. I had observed the purposeful design of the shoe and had devised a theory behind these recently hyped about modern sneaks. Given that it is in my nature to volunteer myself as the test bunny to all my fashion theories, I was eager to purchase my first pair to prove even to myself that these high-fashion sneakers serve a purpose in assisting the illusion of an instant elongation of the legs (as its most famous counterpart, “the high heel” has done since it kicked the kitten heel to the curb).
What I love about my new purchase? The contrast of textures from the shiny, black patent material to the studded detailing wrapped along both sides of the ankles!
I do loathe those moments when everything I throw on seems to not feel quite so right. You know, those “off days” when you wish you could just roll out in a brown paper bag. Oh, the paper bag urge — the epitome of simplicity yet quite inappropriate enough for the public eye to set its sight upon. After rummaging through my closet, I end up throwing on the “casual-of-the-casual”. Everything seems fine until I am about to run out of the door and hit the last concern I wish to think about: THE SHOES.
Then comes the avalanche of concerning questions. Heels do not seem appropriate enough to pair along — almost an awkward combination to imagine, like eating filet mignon with a glass of milk. Lucky for me, my catastrophe can now be avoided with these new kicks that just seem to be sporty enough to mesh well with the casual vibe of my day’s look without having to jeopardize my height. I hope I have proven myself to be a woman of my word. As you can see, I choose to put my money where my mouth is. I won’t believe it until I see it. The verdict? A must buy. I repeat, a must buy!
