    Oh, Belle! You almost had me. I wonder if Uggs makes a version of these lovely shoes 😉

    I know some people who actually consider these “athletic” shoes, including online “fashion” games, etc. Waiting for a rise in broken and sprained ankles in 5.4.3.2……

    Oh my gosh… before I read the other comments I was going to say “I just CANNOT get onboard with this trend” Happy April Fools indeed!

    You know, I’ve seen so many other fashion bloggers wear these that it took me a few minutes to figure you that these aren’t really your style, Belle…!

    *figure out. Although I still can’t figure out why someone would spent $670 on the Isabel Marants rather than get a really classy Choo or Louboutin on sale for that price!

    Every few years, people try to make these high heeled sneakers a thing. Why?

    That Corporette and Boardroom Belles both posted these are must haves makes this joke even sweeter.

      I’m kind of torn on them, even though they’re not my style, because I’ve seen a few bloggers really pull off the look. But it’s just not for me, I’d feel silly wearing them.

    I wish I could have seen my own under-caffeinated expression when I opened CHS this morning. I was 100% puzzled and just wondering if it was an off day. Thanks SO much.

    On the one hand, they are ugly. On the other hand, a coworker has a pair that are HOT pink and made by Ash. I hate to admit it but they didn’t look too bad. The ones you posted here, though, are fugly.
