Zara Wedge High Top Sneaker, £69.99.
Controversial they certainly are. I have friends who have told me I'm ridiculous for buying a pair of wedge trainers. I know Marant did them years ago but they've finally filtered down into every high street store going.
The Zara Wedge High Top Sneakers in black are my new favourite wardrobe item, without a shadow of a doubt. I have to physically force myself to pick up a different pair of shoes some mornings just so I've not worn the same pair all week. When you live in London, there's a lot of walking to be done and these have quite a heel hidden in there.. but they're still insanely comfortable.
I really struggled to find a pair of wedge trainers that weren't a hideous colour or with loads of studs on or with not quite a high enough heel. Aldo, for example, has about ten different variations and none of them were quite right.
I can't recommend Zara's version enough. They're narrow on the foot so you still feel feminine and the all-black look means they're very easy to pair with any outfit.
What are your thoughts on wedge trainers? Love them? Hate them?!
