Wedge sneakers have been pretty popular lately, but remember when heeled sneakers were all the rage back in the late 90s? I remember in 6th grade my friend Jenny had a pair of white sneakers with a block heel and I loved them so much that I asked my parents for a pair. After asking a few times my parents bought be a pair of light pink Skechers sneakers with a block heel. The heels were probably about 2 inches high. Those were a good pair of shoes and lasted me quite a while.
Well the dressy sneakers are back but in wedge form instead of heel. So back in the spring I saw a pair online that I immediately loved from Jennifer Lopez’s line at Kohl’s, but they didn’t have my size! I spent the next few weeks searching for a pair that I liked as much as those Jennifer Lopez ones I liked so much. Finally, I found a pair from Macy’s that I really liked.

These taupe high-top wedge sneakers from Thalia Sodi Azar are perfect. The color matches virtually everything and I love the velcro and gold zip details. To be honest, they do take a little getting used to balance wise, but they are super comfortable. The sneakers come with real laces but I decided to keep them tucked in so they wouldn’t block the velcro detail. I expect to get a lot of wear out of these babies this fall for low-key days out.
This pair is no longer available at Macy’s but I found a pair that is very similar on the site. They are ALDO, which means they are most likely incredibly comfortable because I’ve never worn an ALDO shoe that wasn’t comfortable. They are a little more expensive than the pair I have, but keep an eye out for any upcoming sales!
