Trainers with a hidden wedge heel are the latest ‘thing’ in sports luxe fashion, now as a fashionista I do not really own or wear too many pairs of trainers. I do like Converse and also some slim style Nike’s but generally trainers are not my bag. So, when I saw these new high top style trainers with a hidden wedge heel, I thought brilliant as you can really make your casual outfits more chic. The hidden wedge heel gives you the posture of wearing some high heels, here’s a flavour:
I love the Isabel Marant version Miranda is wearing and as you can see from this image, the styles look great with casual wear, other celebrities seen in hidden heel trainers include Beyonce, Rhianna, Anne Hathaway, Ciara and Dakota Fanning:
First seen back on the catwalk both Isabel Marant and Marc Jacobs debuted hidden heel trainers for this season, here are the Isabel Marant versions (although quite costly between £400 – £500):
There are some more affordable versions of these trainer styles, personally I like to turn to Nike for sportswear as they seem to combine fashion and style into their products, check out their new version of the hidden heel wedge trainer:
£94.99 £84.99 £84.99
The red Liberty print Dunk Sky Hi are awesome! I love the red floral print and skinny laces which make them seem more like a wedge boot and they are quite slim line. I also really really like the grey Dunk Sky Hi Fastlove style as they are classic Nike style trainers – but with a heel! All of these styles are available from Office – www.office.co.uk .
The High Street are also taking part in this key trend for the season, check out the range at Topshop:
£48 £78 £48
All of these are available in store and on www.topshop.com
River Island are also doing their own hidden heel versions at £35.00 www.riverisland.com .
I really love this trend and am definitely going to invest in a pair of hidden heel sneakers, what’s your verdict step up or step down? XOXO
