Wedge Sneakers....Love 'em or Hate 'em?

I really got excited about this trend. I mean, wedge sneakers? How awesome! And while I am aware that this is SO different from what I normally go for......I really loved the idea of these sneakers for my casual Fall and Winter looks. 

And check out Gisele Bundchen. I could totally rock these with a short jacket or even an oversized sweater.

Or so I thought.......I couldn't believe when I actually found a pair! And in black! They were sold out practically everywhere but I found one pair left in my size. There wasn't even a shoe box for them! Luckily that got me a 15% discount on them. It never hurts to ask, right? The sales girl said she could probably do 10% off, I said I was hoping for 15% and she said okay. Yes!

Here's my thoughts, these shoes are super comfy and I love how they make my calves look (Although I don't really know how often I'd wear them with shorts).

 I love the look of this oversized knit sweater with the sneakers. But.....this is pretty much my only pair of skinny jeans; I just don't wear them that often. I feel like you have to wear skinnies with this type of sneaker to really showcase them so I just don't know how much use I'd really get out of them.

I guess I'm still on the fence about them. I kinda love them, but then again I think they are just a little too chunky for me in that they add unnecessary bulk to my feet. Maybe I'm just more of a boots girl.
