The Battle of The Wedge Sneakers

Ok so I know I said I really had to write a paper but I just can't. I might be the world's biggest procrastinator but I may also just be deeply obsessed with all things dubbed chic...istan. Instead of writing a four pager, in French might I add, I've been debating back and forth between the two pairs of sneaker wedges below. Pathetic? Yes but that's not stopping me so you might as well join me. It'll be fun.
Contender numero uno on the left, a burgundy pair of suede sneakers from Ash, and on the left, the product of a dope collaboration between Nike and Liberty. I really love the Nike's, the wedge is more understated and the print is amazing whereas my main issue with the Ash's are that they are too much like Isabel's. And when they aren't Isabel Marant... well, they're just not Isabel Marant. Functionality wise though, I do see myself wearing burgundy sneakers more than purple and yellow printed ones. As you may or may not be able to tell, I've really been struggling with this for a while now, so when in doubt, I ask you: which ones would you buy? Tell me, tell me, TELL ME.

  1. Quite difficult Choice indeed ! But, I really do not like the Nike ones, (dislike liberty). I've got to say that the Ash are beautiful aren't they ? Althrouht too much seen every where...
    Well, good Luck ;)
