Converse High Top Sneakers on Hot Chic. So there is a hot chic wearing a pair of cool Converse dove grey high top sneakers. It is about 80 degrees in Los Angeles today and everyone is showing some skin. If you have not thought about getting in shape for summer, now is the time to buy that Fitbit and start working out and eating right again because swimsuit season is about 3 months away for the rest of the country. For those of us who got to glimpse skin early because of our 80 degree temps today, we saw that there were plenty of people who were in shape and ready to look great when the weather is warm.
For instance this hot chic in her cut off denim shorts and her mid drift t shirt and her grey Converse high tops. Well, for those of you who like the Converse high tops, get them now in the newest 2 1/2 inch wedge platforms in the dove grey to lengthen those legs if you are not exactly in the same shape as this person.

Why are these Nike Dunk Sky hi wedge sneakers so awesome? Well – for one thing these are one of the pairs of wedge sneakers where you do not see the wedge. They are high tops and they are just cool. You don’t look like you are trying too hard with a pair of high heeled sneakers because you are wearing a pair of NIKE sneakers. If you want a SOLID pair of sneakers and a throwback funky 80’s on trend style, don’t hesitate or wait, these Nike sneakers sell out fast in black.
The sneakers have a 3 inch hidden wedge and a 3/4 inch platform. You will look great and taller to boot. You won’t need to wear heels to the basketball game anymore, just wear sneakers with skinny jeans and look casual and cool at the same time.
Lara Stone was seen wearing the black pair with the black laces that also come with these sneakers.
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.

The Y-3 Shoe collection is created by Yohji Yamamoto and worth a look. If you do not know about his Y-3 athletic collection take a look at these incredible leather wedge sneakers that are now on sale for 30% off. I happen to own an older version of these shoes and they are very comfortable, not bulky looking, and lace up like any other cool high top sneakers with an additional perk of a 3 inch hidden wedge heel. I have seen men wearing these shoes too.
I really like the new textile and leather version with the white soles. It gives the shoes an additional bit of light around the shoes that brings more attention to them than the pair I own. And the coolest part is that while you look like you are wearing sneakers, you have gained a 3 inch height advantage.
Y-3 Black Leather Wedge Sneakers are now 30% off.
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.

Easter and Passover are just around the corner and what better way to brighten up your Easter or Passover outfits than to bring a little lilac purple color into your ensemble. When I think of Â this season, I always think pastel pinks, mint greens, and lilac purples. Currently there is a slew of pieces out there in lilac from colored denim, leather watches to dresses. Join the pastel lilac party by getting a great pair of 5 inch wedges from Aldo. These have a rubber bottom and a 1 1/2 inch platform. If you love lilac this is the season to collect everything in lilac. Imagine these lilac wedges with a lilac top and black coated denim jeans.
