River Island Hidden Wedge Hi Top Trainers – Which to keep??

by Lina on April 12, 2012

After searching high and low for the perfect pair of high street concealed/hidden wedge hi top trainers, I discovered these beauties from River Island. They’re basically the same trainer but with slight material variation and colour. Typically, I couldn’t choose a favourite so ordered both thinking I’d know once they’d arrive which I prefer. Well, they’re here and, erm, I don’t.The navy are more flattering to my legs (these things matter!) and go with pretty much everything. They work well with tights – which is a necessity for rainy old England. The red leather(ette?) look cuter on the actual foot (makes ‘em look small and dinky), are more statement and old school, look AMAZING with certain outfits but generally go with a lot less. So it’s a toss up between the one that you could literally wear everyday and look good in, to the one you can only wear every now and again and look really cool in..And then Nike are also set to release their wedge trainer, the Dunk Sky High. You see, if I hadn’t seen how gorgeous the Nike ones were I could easily have talked myself in to keeping both of the River Island ones, but knowing that the Nikes are only a few months away I’m not sure I can rationalise owning three pairs of wedge trainers for one season? Can I?! Oh, yeah, and not forgetting THIS pair that I bought a few months ago which I’ve never even worn (I decided it’s all about the wedge being CONCEALED, however I had formed this opinion after buying them, oh well..) (should really sell them on Ebay – anyone want them?). And then I think if I had just saved all the money I had spent on all these pairs of trainers I could have just bought the goddam Marc by Marc Jacob ones that are my ultimate pair of concealed wedge trainers! Oh. Deep breath. Sigh.

For me this summer is gonna be all about bodycon dresses with hi top trainers, I’m pretty much gonna channel Neneh Cherry circa 1991. Oh yeaaaah. But first, before I can channel – which pair should I keep?Oh, and, I’ve bought fat laces but in white, not cream – will this still work?? Cream are so hard to come by…
