Trend Alert! Fall 2019 Trend: Sneaker Wedges :: Effortlessly with Roxy
Sneaker wedges: yay or nay for you?

It’s no secret that Fall is my favorite shopping season! I love layering, the warm color tones and all the warm, comfy pieces. Each year I look for a few trendy pieces to add to my closet. 2019 looks to be a good year for Fall trends! Right now there are some trends I’m obsessed with!! What do you think of this Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges?

Personally, I love sneaker wedges (and wedge boots too!). Living in New York City heels are a daily fact of life. While the block heel trend has been a move in the right direction, heels are generally about building pain tolerance. On the other hand, sneaker wedges are often comfy from the box and have the same leg-sculpting benefits!

Style in general is moving in a more casual direction and so the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges makes a lot of sense. Here are 5 reasons why I love sneaker wedges plus styling inspiration and my top shopping picks!

1. Why I love the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges — They’re SO comfortable!

Boots can be hit or miss. Heels are an Advil stockholder’s delight. Even sneakers can be hit or miss in their comfort level. But by and large I’ve found most pairs of sneaker wedges I’ve tried on or purchased are super comfy right out of the box!

This saves so many headaches of needing to break in shoes before I wear them out of the apartment! With sneaker wedges I don’t have to worry about being on my feet all day. I don’t have to make sure I have my Lyft app ready to page a car when my feet start to hurt. My ankle doesn’t roll when my legs get tired in sneaker wedges. Being a city dweller this is a huge deal for me!

Most sneaker wedges have a good amount of padding in them, but that’s not the only factor in their comfort level. Sneaker wedges (by and large) hold our feet at a very natural angle. This makes them feel like we’re wearing comfy slippers or something equally nice on our feet! And unlike heels, our feet have room to spread out in sneaker wedges over the day. So no swollen feet come the evening!

Leopard or cheetah, solid or patterned. You can find sneaker wedges that fit your style perfectly.

2. Why I love the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges — You can wear them with ANYTHING.

I own close to 40 pairs of shoes. That seems like a lot. Ok it is a lot! Still, many of my shoes are for certain occasions. I have my dressy shoes and my weekend shoes. I have my work shoes and my commuting shoes.

But with the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges, I don’t have to sort sneaker wedges into one purpose or another. Sneaker wedges work with just about any outfit! I’ve seen them styled with athleisure. I’ve seen them with jeans. I’ve seen them with dresses. For very stylish people, sneaker wedges complete a going out look well!

Further down in this post, I’ve shared some style ideas for sneaker wedges. That outfit inspiration will surely help spark some more styling ideas for the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges in you too!

High top or low top, sneaker wedges are here to delight.

3. Why I love the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges — They come in a zillion different styles.

For awhile, it felt like I could only find sneaker wedges in a few select colors and styles. But no longer! Now that they are trendy, it’s much easier to find sneaker wedges in about a zillion variations. The Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges has brought high top and low top versions. There textured, printed and patterned versions. You can buy sneaker wedges in just about any color.

If you’ve tried sneaker wedges in the past and didn’t find them very comfortable I encourage you to give them another shot! Retailers have clearly worked hard to make sneaker wedges all-day wearable. They are much more padded now and many come with foam that molds to your foot shape.

For this post, I’ve focused in almost exclusively on continuous piece sneaker wedges. That said you can easily find lace-up, high-top style sneaker wedges or a million other variants with a simple search. If you’d like a recommendation for a certain sneaker wedge style, I’m here to help! Just ask me in the comments.

4. Why I love the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges — The trend has staying power.

Few things bother me more than when I embrace a clothing or shoe trend and it’s over by the next season. What a waste of money!! However, you needn’t worry with the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges. This is a trend sure to have staying power.

How do I know? A few ways. Firstly, even though jeans and pants are starting to move into boot and flare cuts, athleisure remains an incredibly popular style and this style nearly always has skinny leg pants. Straight cut jeans are growing in popularity too, and sneaker wedges look great with them! Leggings aren’t going anywhere either. So even if skinny jeans fall out of favor, you’ll still be able to rock sneaker wedges for years to come.

Summer, Winter, Spring or Fall: you can wear sneaker wedges through them all!

5. Why I love the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges — they are a year-round style!

As much as I love the wedge boot trend, you can’t really wear wedge boots in the Summer. At least not here in NYC. But the Fall 2019 trend: sneaker wedges are made to be worn year-round! They tend to be so much more breathable than boots so there’s no stank foot issue.

Sneaker wedges also look great with any bottom! Shorts? Yes! Jeans? You betcha! Dresses? It can be done! So year-round my feet are comfy while my legs look great thanks to sneaker wedges’ naturally toning angle.

So, are you convinced yet that sneaker wedges are worth a try? If not, maybe the styling ideas below will do the trick.

    I love sneaker wedges! I don't own a pair but I'm considering some for this fall.

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:27 am

      I'm already ordering pair #2.

    I don't think I've ever tried sneaker wedges but I think you have convinced me to try. I'm not tall at all and I always wanted to add some height to a casual outfit and wearing heels always makes an outfit look dressy. And that fact that these are comfortable, I'm sold!

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:27 am

      Love it Rach!! I am tall but I still love the comfort and shaping factor. I can't wait to see your outfits with them!!

  3. September 16, 2019 / 10:02 am

    These are so cute!! Love how all of these ladies styled these shoes!

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:28 am

      Yes they did an amazing job!! If you visit the Pinterest board you can shop their posts directly.

    I have yet to find some that I love, but that first pair has me reconsidering!

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:28 am

      That Matisse pair is so chic.

    I love the leopard print! Such a fun trend!

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:30 am

      Leopard print is everywhere!! I do love the print on those sneaker wedges too, good spacing and size.

  6. September 16, 2019 / 12:06 pm

    I need to grab me a pair! I have seen these in all kinds of styles. You can also wear these in many ways. Cant wait to rock these this fall.

    That’s an interesting trend. I have not seen it around but now I am curious.

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:30 am

      I could see you totally rocking these Tanvi!

  8. September 16, 2019 / 2:42 pm

    It looks so comfy and a great way to appear taller!

    I love my sneaker wedges! I have a black pair with studs on the back, but I'm planning to add another pair to the collection!

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:31 am

      Those sound so fun Emily! I love the Dolce Vita pair in my boutique above that has snakeskin down the back, what an unexpected fun detail.

    Not sure how I feel about them! Maybe I am just too old!!!! LOL

    September 17, 2019 / 5:19 am

    Ooh, I certainly am intrigued by these shoes! I don't think I've seen them before, but I'm already a huge fan of wedges so I'll have to keep my eyes out for a pair of these 🙌

  14. September 17, 2019 / 9:45 am

    I think I remember when these were popular a few years back! I never did get a pair, but I think the leopard print ones here are super cute!

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:32 am

      I guess trends are coming around faster! I missed out on these a few years ago.

  15. September 17, 2019 / 10:21 am

    I feel like sneaker wedges was a thing a couple years ago. They look cute but haven't tried them out yet.

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:32 am

      Really? I don't remember that at all?? But I'm glad they are here now. 🙂

    September 17, 2019 / 11:15 am

    I love how you can dress them up or down! They look so comfy

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:33 am

      Me too! It's a rare shoe that works with everything.

  17. lauryn
    September 17, 2019 / 12:16 pm

    Sneaker wedges look so comfortable! I would totally get the leopard print or black ones.

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:33 am

      Yes, I think it would be fun to get a black pair with some texture to it.

  18. September 17, 2019 / 1:43 pm

    I don’t own any sneaker wedges, but I’m adding them to my fall wishlist. They’re perfect for a mom-on-the-run like me! These are all really cute choices.

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:34 am

      Yes great for moms! Stylish and supportive. I recently had a minor foot injury from wearing flip flops and sandals all Summer, turns out my feet need a little more support than that!

    I've always been on the fence about sneaker wedges but those leopard ones are cuteeeeeeee!

    • September 18, 2019 / 7:34 am

      Aren't they adorable? And under $50!!

  21. September 18, 2019 / 8:43 am

    I have a pair of black sneaker wedges and I am OBSESSED with them.

    • September 24, 2019 / 10:55 am

      They are possibly the best shoe ever!

  22. Louella Reese
    September 18, 2019 / 9:21 am

    Have to be honest this is not a trend of me but these gals rock them so well!

    • September 24, 2019 / 10:55 am

      That's cool, not every trend is going to be our cup of tea.

  23. September 18, 2019 / 10:25 am

    These are super cute and they look so comfy! I need to get a pair.

    • September 24, 2019 / 10:55 am

      I'm already on my second pair, lol.

    I LOVE sneaker wedges! I actually bought my very first pair years ago when I was on vacation in Paris! They are still some of my favorites to this day!

    • September 24, 2019 / 10:56 am

      Love that they've lasted you so long!

  26. September 18, 2019 / 2:12 pm

    I remember when this was a popular trend a few years back, I'm glad it's coming around full circle again!

    September 18, 2019 / 5:15 pm

    These are so cute! I almost bought a pair a couple of seasons ago, but I never could pull the trigger. I might have to get a pair this year!

  28. September 18, 2019 / 9:47 pm

    I'm a sneaker junkie and really need to get myself a brown and black pair of wedged sneakers. They'd be so perfect for fall!

    • September 24, 2019 / 10:59 am

      They really would be! I just need the temperatures here to drop like 15 or 20 degrees!

  29. Jennifer Prince
    September 19, 2019 / 9:33 am

    Ok, I totally wasn't a fan of these until I saw this post! I had no idea there were SO many styles of them out there. So cute!!

    • September 24, 2019 / 10:59 am

  32. September 20, 2019 / 10:39 am

    I LOVE the wedge sneaker trend. It’s so perfect for Fall!
