I’ve wanted a pair of high-wedge sneakers for a long time. Last year, I tried on these happy-looking See by Chloe sneakers, but they didn’t fit.
I noticed this pair by Ash on Saks.com last weekend.
They don’t make my heart sing so much that I want to order them, but if I wandered by them in a store, I’d probably stop to try them on. Anyway, I’ve already made a “shoes that shouldn’t have heels” purchase this year. I’m looking forward to wearing my high-heel, over-the-knee Tommy Hilfiger duck boots soon.
While writing this post, I had a vague thought: “Isn’t there a song about high-heeled sneakers?” That turned out to be an understatement (underthought?)! Blues singer Tommy Tucker’s 1964 song Hi-Heel Sneakers has been recorded by over 200 artists, according to Wikipedia. Elvis, Janis Joplin, my almost-husband Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder are just a few examples. I’ve selected some from YouTube. Tell me you don’t want high-heeled sneakers after listening to this song repeatedly. It’s hypnotic. Forget the wedges … bring on the sneaker stilettos!
