Would You Wear: Wedge Sneakers?

Can I ask you a question? How do you feel about wedge sneakers?

When I first heard of this trend I have to admit, I laughed. I rolled my eyes. I brushed it off. “Who would ever wear that?” How could that look ever take off? It seemed especially ridiculous to me, and believe me, I’m quite likely to espouse most of the more ridiculous fashion trends out there.

I’m eating my hat these days, because I’ve started noticing them on the streets more and more, and every time I sort of stop myself and go, “Huh,” closely followed by, “those are kind of cute.”

Am I losing it? Or are these actually sort of amazing?

I’ve put together a slideshow a few wedge sneakers that available for purchase, as well as some of some of my favorite looks featuring said sneakwedge. Do tell me where you fall on this matter. It can be a little like group therapy! After the jump!
