Bye Shoecide

I’m pretty sure that when Levi Strauss came up with the blue jean he didn’t imagine that the pants he had created to make it more comfortable for farm workers to work in their fields, would progress into a luxury item that every person would have in their closet. I assume the same of the people of Nike, Adidas, Reebok and other sneaker brands who probably never envisioned a sport shoe would become a status symbol as well.

But designers have proved us wrong once again. This season sneakers are not only in, but some of them contain heels and platforms so when they are worn they cause the same effect a stiletto would on a woman’s leg– minus the shoecide. And the prices of these shoes have catapulted way above than a pair of Louboutins would, making them not only trendy but a sort of anti-status symbol that any fashionista should include in her closet.

Here are a few examples of this season’s high end sneakers.

The whole ‘luxury sneakers’ frenzy began with Isabel Marant’s Willow sneakers. These include an inner platform that is not visibly apparent but the effect if causes on a girl’s leg is pretty much the same that a platform sandal would create. Endless amounts of celebrities, fashion bloggers, and trendy girls who can shed $770 for a pair of sneakers have been spotted wearing these Marant shoes.
