Although sneakers never go out of style as they are a staple for almost every wardrobe, wedge sneakers are seeing their way. A staple of the fashion trends of the 2000s, wedge sneakers lost their appeal as few people sought to add more height to their tennis shoes. This controversial sneaker, even in its heyday, was known to spark strong opinions. Isabel Wilkinson, online editor of T Magazine, told Repeller in 2012: “I was told that wedge sneakers go longer on the leg; with the right skinny jeans, even flattering. But while I was filming in front of the mirror, it was decided: I looked like Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather entering the ring. They cut my calves in the worst possible place and made me look about a foot shorter than me, despite the internal elevator.
Despite the fashion resurgence of the 2000s, wedge sneakers were not the ones that made a comeback on the trend list. However, if you still fancy mixing up the height with your sneakers, the good news is that platform sneakers aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Instead of adding a heel only to the rear of the show, platform sneakers elevate the entire shoe and add more chic. One option for this type of look is the Superga 2790 sneaker. Constantly sold out, this shoe is a great way to bring the wedge sneaker into the modern era.
