The Kooples Wedge Sneakers

I know I've harped on enough about finding a pair of wedge sneakers similar to the Isabel Marant Bekket that'll fit my pixie sized feet. A reader wrote in recently to inform me that she saw a pair of Isabel Marant sneakers in size 35 at a shop I used to frequent in Auckland. Yay! I guess there's hope after all for people like me.

As I strode down King's Road on my way to Ash Footwear, I caught a glimpse of the most divine pair of nude colored wedge sneakers at The Kooples. I stopped dead in my tracks to have another good look. I've often heard friends of mine exclaiming how comfortable their heels are. I wondered if I'd ever have a chance to say that.  As I slid into shoes and walked around, I was amazed that I could walk rather comfortably. They're certainly not cheap at £220 compared to the alternatives in my previous post.

So far I've trekked up Farley Mount, went for a walk in the countryside and ran down the street in a bid to get to Lil L's school on time in these sneakers. I can safely say that I can run in heels now. This is quite a feat for someone who can barely balance on a pair of 2 inch heels. The cushioned insole and padding ensure a comfortable fit. The wide soles give more stability to the wearer. Unfortunately, The Kooples do not ship outside of European Union at this point in time but Ash offers good alternatives as well (available here, here and here).

  7. Those are really cool and I'm loving the color. The neutral tone will pretty much go with everything. Happy that you finally found a pair of sneakers that you like! :)

  9. They look great! Glad you 'road' tested them so well :-) I managed to get hold of the ASOS Deny in light grey and white which was originally sold out so am happy too!

  11. Ooh great find!! They are perfect!! Wish we had The Kooples in the States. I am leaning towards getting the Ash Bowie but can't figure out which color I want. I have the opposite problem because I wear a size 39 so I always think my feet look enormous. I would love to have small feet :)

  12. they are quite cute. i can't believe you're a size 35! not a bad thing since i almost never see shoes in my size (38/39) available for long ;)

  13. I really like them! Super cool... You did so well to find them and the colour is perfect. Just what you were after. Isn't it amazing that the 2" wedge really doesn't feel like 2". Not that I would encourage you to run in them too much :)

    1. Trishie, yes, these ones have concealed heels. Every shortie's answer to looking tall :)

  15. They're lovely - I noticed them on the Kooples advert and thought they looked really lovely - I really like the side sip detail on them. We've just had a Kooples open here in Leeds and I walked past yesterday - I wish I'd gone in now not that I have £220 to spend on some trainers but I can still look and stroke them - that's free at least. I have a pair of beige suede hidden wedge style trainers which my youngest little boy drags out every day and clomps around in - for some reason they're his favourite but mine have become stained across the top from the blue of my jeans. Not a good look so I've semi-retired mine now :o(

  16. They´re super cool! I like them! I love my beige Prada sneakers and wear them all the time, so I think this is really a great find!
    I kinda stopped wearing the Willows because everyboddy is wearing them, sigh, and I saw so many "wannabe´s" everwhere...

  17. Absolutely love your Kooples wedge trainers/sneakers!

    They look fantastic!

  18. Great choice. Love the zipper detail. You bemoan your small feet but shoes really do look better on the foot when you're a small size!

  19. Love those!!! I can't get over that they have a hidden heel. Fab idea.
