Wedge sneakers: Ash Italia
Yes, I finally caved in. These are not heels. I'm one of the most anti-casual/anti-sporty girl out there and I managed to pull these off for four days, last week. I can't walk in flats, be it balerina flats or oxfords. The back of my feet will hurt and I'd get blisters. But I can't wear heels all day long, I have to alternate. I used to walk in Valentino jelly thongs but I have always needed that extra height.
Then I came across these pair, called Ash Italia Bowie (USD195 from Shopbop), that are not as expensive as Isabel Marants to start with. What's even better is that they come in almond toes, I don't know the exact term for sneakers, but you know, they're less bulky, which I feel, would probably suit me more. And since Isabel Marant sneakers smallest size is 36, they will be huge on me.
So here are the different ways I wear them on the day! I would say if you are petite, don't worry about looking 'shorter' when wearing a pair of wedge sneaker. My trick is to choose a black colored pair, and wear them with black leggings to create longer legs silhouette.
Ash Bowie suede wedge sneakers are also available in nude, coral, turquoise and yellow (USD195).
