Wedge Trainers – Would You?

A trend which has been puzzling me recently is that of the wedge trainer. I sort of understood when we were all wearing heeled plimsolls a year or 2 ago but these trainers with their hidden wedges are just something I can’t get my head around.

Topshop Wedge Trainer – £48

The above trainer can be found here.

What I don’t get is why we are concealing the wedges and making it look like we have giant heels – a huge Achilles of these shoes, if you will!

What I also fail to understand is why we want heeled trainers. In my opinion, trainers normally ruin any outfit; even the most casual outfit with the most stylish trainers and they should only be worn when comfort is the primary concern. Why then, would we want wedged or heeled trainers???

Topshop aren’t alone in selling these, they seem to be popping up all over the place but I’m not sure who’s buying them, so far I have only spotted one trend setter on my local high street rocking these bad boys. What about you, will you be wearing them? x
