If you are looking for the best pair of wedge sneakers that will make your legs look about 3 3/4 inches taller, I suggest these Ash Cool Ter wedge sneakers in the black leather with the white soles. These babies will add almost 4 inches to your height and if you wear black jeans, you will just have one long lean line and you will look like you are 5 foot 6 inches tall instead of 5 feet 2 inches on a good day. AND you look so relaxed and casual like you can take your kid to school or go to a Lakers Game without looking like you are trying too hard with a pair of platform heels, but not be shorter than everyone in the room.
If you are looking for something great to wear with your jeans for a great day out look – these Ash cool ter wedge sneakers are for you and are available for $294.95.

Lindsay Lohan was seen wearing these amazing Giuseppe Zanotti black platform ankle boots. These ankle boots boast a 6 inch heel with a 2 1/2 inch platform so the ankle boots only feel like 3 1/2 inch heels.
Lindsay was 6 inches taller in these ankle boots and who does not want to be taller? They looked really great on her and really elongated her legs. The elegance of Giuseppe Zanotti’s designs gives this an edgy but elegant look.

I had the pleasure of meeting Monika Chiang over a year ago when she first opened her Monika Chiang boutique on Robertson in Los Angeles and I knew from that first look that her collection was going to be a winner. What she does in her collection is gives the consumer the ability to buy pieces that they would otherwise find cost prohibitive in the marketplace. For example I own a pair of her leather pants with the side zips and the design and leather she used would have cost double from a different designer. The same goes for her Monika Chiang Neon Wedge Sneakers which are a must for winter. Similar quality and styling from a certain French designer Isabel Marant would cost $775 and that is if you can find the right color combo and size in stock since they are almost always sold out.
Monika Chiang has created a cool edgy neon wedge sneaker with just the right amount of color to give it that 80’s rapper cool with the thick laces and added the hidden 3 inch wedge to give you the height advantage you want even in a sneaker. Her sneakers are definitely very comfortable and you look so hip and stylish in them too. Celebrities have been seen wearing all color combinations and variations of these wedge sneakers and they are definitely here to stay. After all what girl does not want to be 3 inches taller without being too obvious?
For those of us who are petite rejoice in the fact that platforms are still in style. I am especially loving all of the Lanvin wedge platforms this season. Seen on Victoria Beckham in New York City this week are the Lanvin Crazy Wedge Oxford platforms that she wore with her Balenciaga dress. No doubt these wedges are crazy considering the fact that they are 5 1/2 inches tall. How does she carry her baby girl like that without fear of falling? I guess she has been wearing high platforms for so long she is used to it by now.
What I like about these Lanvin wedge platforms is the fact that they are in the newest Oxford style trend. The simple lace up design gives you the versatility to wear them with jeans, dresses, or pants. The wedges give you the height and the platforms give you the stability. If you are in the market for a pair of ankle boots, these may just do the trick.

Megan Fox was seen on her way to a Lakers Game with Brian Austin Green wearing a pair of Ash Cool Suede Lace Up Wedge Sneakers in Black and White.
This season Ash has many other colors including pink and light blue. I am loving the wedge sneakers trend because anyone who is petite can wear comfortable wedge sneakers now and gain 3 inches of height. So now you can still look long and lean in sneakers at any casual occasion.
Don’t say I did not warn you that these are gonna sell out. It is the end of July so all of Fall 2012 is coming out. This is the time to shop for your Fall 2012 must haves because by the time you want boots, leather jackets, and coats, everything that you wanted will be sold out. Check out these amazing Lanvin Patent-Leather Platform Ankle Boots.
They are gorgeous in their patent leather glory with their matching wooden platform wedge heel. These boots will give you height. The platform is 2 inches so you will feel like you are walking on 3.5 inches instead of 5.5 inches. So you will be comfortable and TALLER. Wear these with a pair of black opaque tights and a color block dress and you can channel your inner mod chic 1960’s diva like Audrey Hepburn.
For all of you petite gals, you can run in these, look gorgeous and chic, and be taller finally.
Well it is raining and pouring today…get your rain boots out or your platform ankle boots out…This season is all about the platform in shoes. I am loving the ankle boot look and especially love black platform ankle boots that are almost 5 1/2 inches in height.
When you wear the platform on these boots, you are comfortable and TALL. This season, you can tower over everyone and be comfortable on New Year’s Eve or at all those holiday parties or just out on the weekends.
Get black platform ankle boots here. I found these online from the UK so the great thing about these is that not many people will have them…
