Gettin' Hi with Nike

Photos shot by Patrick Baluyut


I've been a fan of wedge sneakers since I saw Beyonce rocking Isabel Marants in her Love on Top video. I knew I had to get a pair and when I finally got lucky one sunny afternoon at Barneys on Madison Avenue in NYC last summer, I was hooked. Not long after that, I had some fun styling outfits around the shoes.

Then I saw that Nike started making Dunks with a wedge heel inside. I've always been a fan of the Nike Dunk High style and now that there's a 2.5-inch heel inside, I've become a super fan. They run a tad large, so if you're going to get a pair, order your true size or half a size smaller. On most shoes, my feet are a size 7.5. But in these, the size 7s have a bit of space at the toes, enough for thick athletic socks.

Comfort-wise, I'd have to be honest and say that the Isabel Marants are comfier. I can feel where the high heel platform ends on the Sky Hi whereas on the Marants, the transition is smoother, without telltale signs of the concealed 3-inch wedge. But we obviously can't argue about the price--this is far more wallet-friendly than Marants, and besides, they're two totally different styles! I love them both equally.



I'm wearing: Zara top, J. Crew Matchstick Jeans (my fave!), Nike Dunk Sky Hi (I ordered them from here), Michael Kors watch, J. Crew bracelet, Ray-Ban Sunglasses.
