When it comes to fashion-forward footwear, the things that are trendy aren't exactly practical, and let me tell you -- it's frustrating. Do you hear me, ladies? I mean, I want to wear every sneaker wedge on the market, but for heaven's sake, how can a woman A) look normal doing so without getting sideways glances and B) wear them for hours on end?
I guess that's how it all works, right? Weird things hit the market, we hate them for a while, then they catch on and we still pretend to hate them, and then somehow overnight WAM, you own four of the wonky item in every color available.
Just you wait and see, sneaker wedges are only the tip of the iceberg. Here, let's talk 4 wacky footwear trends (that we secretly love):
Are you a fan of any of these shoes?

Ohhhh, the sneaker wedge. From my experience you either love the look or absolutely despise it with a heated passion. Are they logical? Of course not. Sneakers are supposed to be for athletic activity, and no woman in her right mind would go run a quick lap around a track in a pair of wedged sneakers.
The verdict? I'm obsessed with mine. In fact, I just ordered another pair from Nike. This particular Candie's wedge ($31.99, kohls.com) is comfortable enough to walk around in for an entire afternoon, coming in at about 2 1/2 inches.
I'm sure your question is Emily, where the hell do I wear these? So far my answer is to a bar, to the movies, to brunch ... so I'm gonna go with most anywhere (except maybe your niece's bat mizvah).
