Now that every high street shoe merchant has done a copy, every street style blogger has been snapped, standing pigeon-toed, in a pair, I’m glad I couldn’t afford to splurge £400 on Isabel Marant’s hidden wedge hi-tops. Ubiquitous and unattractive, these boots are not fooling anyone. The wedge isn’t really hidden. No one has ankles shaped like that, unless they suffer from heel spurs, or elephantitis. I like a wedge heel, I’m fond of sportswear, but surely in modern day
fashion terminology, the combination of wedge + sneaker = weaker.

Hidden wedges are the new Uggs  – and there’s only one place for them…
