From Gisele Bundchen and Miranda Kerr to Elle Fanning and Anne Hathaway, high top wedge sneakers were everywhere this summer.
Isabel Marant, fashion’s French laid-back cool kid, charmed these “Ugg-chic” babies into celeb’s closets somehow and now they’re in sky high demand. The fusion of high fashion and sporty street have been replicated by other brands now like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, and Chloé, but you can snag them for prices far lower than their $375–$450 price tag.
American Eagle carries an Aeo Hidden Wedge Sneaker in faux-suede black with three Velcro straps across the front and a cruved, quilted heel collar around back that’ll help you kick it in style all winter (spring and next summer) for $80. The color is a standard black and it’s quirky concept will help contrast any outfit, whether you want to dress up or down.
The BDG label at Urban Outfitters carries their own version of a high-top wedge sneak in faux leather for a competing $79 that has four front straps, while DSW flaunts something a little flashier in red and black from Heart Soul for $70.
