Trend Alert: Lace-up Suede Wedge Sandals | Yes or Not?

Splurge vs Save

Gladiator style is very trendy this season and is a big source of inspiration on footwear mostly. Many brands have showcased knee high flat sandals with a strappy design in their S/S collections and, even though they aren't my kind, I'm tempted to experiment an outfit, as for me they are very nice with mini skirts, shorts or rompers. But there is a particular model that caught my eye and seems to be so popular at the moment: those lace-up suede wedge sandals, first seen at the recent Chloé S/S15 runway. 
Well, to be honest I dislike them, even if they look pretty versatile and comfy, they aren't feminine at all. The tan suede is a bit appealing though, would be lovely with a short white lace dress and a panama :)

Do you agree? Tell me your thoughts, yay or nay?

xoxo

Non so, sono combattuta, diciamo che trovo che è un genere di scarpa che sta bene solo a pochissime!!
Baci! F.

Wedge sandals are my favourite during summer but not so much for lace up. Although the lace sandals are so instyle right now. I prefer the Topshop version more than the Chloe. The platform will really make it look good.

I am not so crazy about this style, I prefer more classic shoe fashion. But like Civetta says some people look great in them.

Hello my lovely Lilli!! I hope you are well, it is so sunny here today, so these shoes would come in handy!! I quite love the cheaper pair actually and that is because of the toe part, there is more of a level, instead of the more expensive ones are closer to the ground, like I feel my toes would scrap on the ground with the expensive ones and the cheaper version they will lifted away from the ground (I hope this makes sense!?!) Plus, with the spare money from the cheaper version, I could buy a dress or something to go with them, haha!! Have a sweet day my dear, hope it is sunny. Lots of hugs xox

Diana said...

A me piacciono un sacco! :)

Un abbraccio cara Lilli! :)

Confesso di averle provate per curiosità ma non è proprio il mio genere come pensavo, sembro un elefante con ai piedi delle zattere, ti assicuro che farei ridere pure i polli. XP

Ciao Lilli. Questo è il classico trend che mi piace ammirare sulle altre ma che non vedo proprio bene su di me. Peccato perché i sandali di Chloé sono davvero carini.
Un bacio e buona giornata

Although, I do love Chloe, the inexpensive pair look just as great to me. Great picks Lilli. Hope you are doing well. xx <3

Sometimes I see people rocking out a pair of gladiator sandals but personally they don't appeal to me as they seem a little too trendy and I wouldn't want to bother with all those laces not to mention the funky tan lines. Maybe I'm just too boring ;p

Hmm.. I'm not sure about this trend. 30 years ago I had some gladiator sandals like these. But now, it's no trend for me. And I think these shoes shorten the legs. Your selection looks pretty and I understand if young women like to wear gladiator Sandals. It's a new trend for all these girls. ;)
Dear Lilli, wish you a wonderful evening. Big kiss, Cla

Che belli sandali! Un bacione.

Shireen L. Platt said...

I like gladiator sandals but am not a fan of these laced up flatforms. It just looks so bulky, heavy and not feminine at all. But maybe it's because I am old so I don't understand this trend. LOL!

I don't know... I think is complicated wear this model, I am prefer sandals more versatile un summer, kisses hun.

Colleen Campbell said...

Well you'll know I own a pair of the knee length flat gladiator sandals which I love but I must say i'm not so keen on the wedge version. This style of wedge is definitely very much on trend right now and I do think it suits some people but I know they definitely would not suit my feet as i have quite flat feel already. I prefer the style of the chloe because they dont have a wedge all the way round but of course your choice is much cheaper and my favourite is the tan variety. Hope you're having a great week x

Ciao Lilli, sono molto carini con il suede, solo che avevo un paio di scarpe così aperte e all'atto pratico di camminare mi hanno "cotto" i piedi, mi bruciava la pelle, ahahahah...spero non succeda anche con queste, LOL ! Sicuramente le trovo più belle di quelle modello gladiator classico. Un bacione bellezza

ciao tesoro! per me è un big no! a te piacciono?
probabilmente dovrei anche vederle indosso, ma di sicuro non è il genere di scarpa che mi fa impazzire! scusa la sincerità! :D
un bacione e buonanotte <3 <3

Dear Lilli, I must say I'm not fond of the wedge version. This style of wedge is surely very much on trend right now. I know some ladies love this style, but I think it's not for me. I have a pair of wedge similar of this style, but I don't like that on my feet. Nice post dear1 Hope you have a fantastic day! Many kisses and hugs <3

mmm devo dirti la verità, a me non convincono proprio. L'unica versione che mi può piacere è quella con i sandali bassissimi e molto minimali, ma io non li comprerei. Non mi piacciono sulle modelle, figuriamoci nella vita reale :).
ti auguro un favoloso venerdì, tesor
