Nike Dunk Sky Hi Suede Wedge Sneakers: A Team Player?

Could it be? Has the sneaker-wedge trend finally grown out of control? As far as I’m concerned, it’s been running rampant every since Isabel Marant started charging $700 for hers, but I do see the logic in a comfy, soft sneaker that offers a boost of height. It’s just not for me. If I’m wearing sneakers, I want them to be sneakers. Especially if they’re Nikes! I’m not surprised they’ve hopped on the bandwagon (hey, if Steve Madden can profit off of Marant knockoffs, then why shouldn’t an athletic brand revamp one of their originals?), but I’m not exactly thrilled either. For a pair of kicks, they are pretty cute. And I do like the color palettes they’ve elected, especially for the fall season. The trouble is: when I see that swoosh, I see a pair of shoes you should be able to hit the treadmill in, not a 2.5” heel, even if it is hidden. Which is why I’m going to have to leave these off the team. On Net-a-Porter for $120.
