This week, FN’s In Her Shoes columnist Stacey Griffith — senior master instructor at SoulCycle — goes for a sporty but stylish pair of Louis Vuitton Wedge sneakers. See her thoughts on the style below:
“Way to go LV with the street culture bang this season—lookin’ good here with the homage to Air Jordan! I spotted these shoes (and the LV pool slides featured) while on vacation in St. Tropez and I couldn’t resist!
The thing that got me was the subtle LV Damier pattern on the tongue, and the low hanging Velcro strap with the embossed LV across the top (you know I love this ). These are a super soft leather, mixed with mesh, and have a solid rubber two-tone outsole. When a shoe combines invention with function, timeless design, and a great simple color combination (a la the bright yellow touch on the inside of the shoe lining) it gives your feet the feeling creative stability. Call it a shoegasm, call it sneaker guru lingo, call it what you will— It will make sense to you if you are a couture sneaker head, as these shoes will set you back $995, AKA these will be on the top shelf/celeb row on my sneaker wall.”
