Isabel Marant Is Tired Of Wedge Sneakers. She Made This One Instead.
It seems like just yesterday we were frantically searching the Interwebs to get our paws on a pair of Isabel Marant’s must-have wedge sneaker. While she recently told WWD that the “Beketts” are still selling like hotcakes, we’ve moved our footwear obsession on to her newest “It” sneaker — this gorgeous cheetah-printed lace-up. It’s the definition of chic meets comfort. After all, isn’t that what’s important when it comes to a staple piece? "The most comfortable things are the things you will always wear and that you are never fed up with," Marant told WWD.
There isn’t anything too fancy about this sneaker, which is exactly why we’re in love with it. In place of the Bekett’s wedge and velcro straps, there is a simple, flat sole and white shoelaces. The bronze detailing in the back of the shoe the perfect amount of glam for a fashion sneaker. We’ve been seeing a lot of leopard-printed shoes as of late, so we’re excited to see Marant’s use of the also fashionable cheetah print. (Curious what the difference is? Here’s an easy explanation)
This sneaker is part of her pre-fall 2014 line, which sadly isn’t available yet. Until then, shop one of these equally amazing animal-printed pairs of sneakers from our collection.
