Ever since Isabel Marant introduced her version of the hi-top sneakers with a concealed wedge, the hype for them has escalated to a near hysteria. Paparazzi shots of celebrities wearing them are beamed all over the world. Bloggers got in on the act as well. The names like Bekket, Betty, Bobby, Perkins and Willow became common knowledge. Just in case if I've confused you, these are the different versions of sneakers designed by Isabel Marant.
|John Lewis Balham Trainers £110|
The once sporty sneakers have become highly coveted and ultra expensive. I admit I've become rather obsessed with them lately. When I found out that Ms Marant had no plans of making these trainers in sizes smaller than a 36, I'd pretty much ditch the idea of ever finding a pair. I'm so pleased that many companies have now jumped on the bandwagon to satisfy the masses. The comfortable looking alternative from John Lewis or otherwise known as Balham (shown above) priced very reasonably at £110 is completely sold out everywhere.
