How To Wear Wedge Sneakers (Warning: May Cause Spontaneous Jumping!)

Some trends come on the scene and almost everybody loves them immediately – peplums and cap-toes, for example.  Then there are those that have to grow on you over time.  And still there are others that are equally hated and loved by the masses no matter how much time you give it…like the wedge sneaker! They came on the scene earlier this year evoking mixed reactions from fashion enthusiasts everywhere.  And, even among those who love the trend, there are many who prefer to love them from afar.  You know how that goes — “I love them…on you! But, I’m not sure how I would wear those.”  I’m clearly not one of those people. Lol! When I love something, I just cannot let someone else have all the fun…I’ve gotta join in.

Xhileration Sweatshirt via Target (old, similar, $39) & short sleeve version, $29) | H&M Jeans ($20 in-store) | ShoeDazzle “Urge” Sneakers | ASOS Oversized Bowler | Necklace via AmericasMart | Lips: Certainly Red by Revlon

I bought this pair of bright orange “Urge” wedge sneakers from ShoeDazzle…it was love at first sight!  And actually, ShoeDazzle did a great job with styling their models with these shoes if you’re looking for a little inspiration. (I think these are sold out now, but you can definitely get on the waitlist.) So, the key to styling these shoes is to play up the sporty appeal. Tuck those skinny jeans or leggings in (solid colors and prints are equally cool), and opt for a graphic print tee, an oversized sweater, or a casual jacket on top.  They also look great with a nice pair of shorts – cutoffs work especially well.  Love these casual looks on Alessandra Ambrosio, Keri Hilson, and Rosie Huntington!

Now, I’ve also seen some celebs rocking their wedge sneakers with flowy dresses, skirts, and other less-than-sporty ensembles.  To be honest, I am not a fan of that look.  I think it looks a bit awkward.  But, you know me — I never say never.  Someone could probably convince me otherwise.

 Are you a fan of the wedge sneaker trend?

    I love the way you pulled this together… I myself am not fond of wedge sneakers maybe because I am a true sneaker head, give me some dunks and I'll rock em them til the wheels fall off! But for those who do not wear sneakers at all I think this is a great alternative. Love the red ones on you!!

    • Envy says:

      thats not true….a true sneaker head would embrace this style as this is a SNEAKER wedge…. if you love sneakers give it a try! it wont hurt, it wont look as good as a pair of jordans, but this just makes your sneakers a little more somthing, somthing! lol

  11. Lol, you are really loving these shoes!! I love the bright color.
    I like the idea of wedge sneakers, but on other people. I haven’t worn sneakers in a non-athletic way in years and don’t know if I can pull it off or want to invest the money in this trend.

  37. NikkiMorrill says:

    I own 2 pairs so far…have deff paired them with some boot cut jeans and all I had to do is tuck the front part of the jean behind the tongue and it still looks cute…I am a big girl and I don't like the pain of wearing heels but love the way these make me look longer and leaner and give me a boost of confidence to strut it like I'm wearing heels but the comfort of wearing sneakers!
