Current Obsession: Liberty Print Dunks

You guys! How come no one told me these Liberty x Nike trainers existed? I’m in LURVE!

I’ve been skeptical about the whole wedge-sneaker thing since Isabel Marant started the trend (will we just look back on these with shame, the way I look at the platform Skechers I had to have after seeing Mya’s Moving On video back in the day?) but my mind is now CHANGED. My obsession with them is bordering on the obsession I had with the Nike Air Diamond 1s (aka Deion Sanders) circa 1993, and for the past week I’ve been picturing them with everything from cutoffs to mini dresses.

What do y’all think? Are they too much or just-right-for-now?

    I also hated the Marant wedges when they first came out–thought they were absolutely hideous. Cut to a year and a half later and I just bought my first pair, in blue and white. I’m so in love with them that I’m trying to figure out how to wear them with everything, from maxi skirts to sundresses! I’m also seriously contemplating a black pair. Talk about Lurve!!!

    Woah!!! You just brought me back. I think the Marant ones take themselves too seriously with the simple colors. The liberty print celebrates what is a fun shoe anyway!

    Way cuter than those platform Sketchers, might fall into the “not cool anymore but i love them so much I’m keeping them for when they come back around” pile. The Liberty print definitely helps.

    I’ve got a sweet pair of platform sandals I think are coming back to my feet this summer.

    Wow you threw me back mentioning Mya’s Movin’ On…! Where is she now?
    My fav platform sneaks are the nine west gold and taupe.

    I don’t know…they just look like high-top sneakers to me. I might have to see them on.
