Style Stealer: Jessica Alba Shows How To Rock Wedge Sneakers

About six months ago, I made a somewhat ill-advised purchase of an expensive pair of wedge sneakers. I wore them a couple times and then they’ve been sitting in my closet ever since, even as wedge sneakers have become more ubiquitous. I just didn’t quite know how to wear them in a way that was casual and yet feminine. Seeing how Jessica Alba is wearing hers — with a menswear-inspired double-breasted coat, skinny jeans, and lots of cream — I think I finally get it. Check out how to get the look yourself, after the jump! Best of all, these sneaks are less than $40! Keep reading »

Chart: The Evolution of the Lady Sneaker

Ever since plimsoll first arrived in the 1830s, we’ve been working to constantly improve our athletic footwear. One unfortunate recent evolution — probably originating from the high platforms worn by ravers in the ’80s and ’90s — is the emergence of the high-heel sneaker. You might have had a pair in the late ’90s. Beyonce certainly did. Now the latest thing? Isabel Marant platform wedge sneakers, that sneakily hide the heel inside the shoe so no one has to know that you’ve got an extra little booty push. They’re great if you’ve got an extra $760 to spare. But if not, do what Amelia did, and get a less expensive but still totally cool version of these made by Ash.
