Staying Comfy in My Nike Sky-Hi



Cardigan: Hearts & Bows via ASOS | Shirt: Joe's Jeans | Pants: Paige Denim (similar here) | Wedge Sneakers: Nike

Just by looking at these high-tops, I'm sure it's hard to tell that they're actually hidden wedge sneakers! I've been loving the trend lately because I like the fact that you can get the look of elongated legs without looking too girly or dressed up in heels. 

I've been wanting to wear them out but hadn't found an appropriate time for it, so I decided to sport them out anyways on this rainy day. I really like that they're made of suede, my favorite kind of material for shoes, but it also means it's a little more high-maintenance than regular leather. I've been looking into buying one of those waterproofing sprays or suede protectants but haven't got around to actually purchasing them yet, any recommendations?

  2. Oooh I want them!! I have been looking for a pair that's subtle on the wedge part of the sneaker. I like these! :)

    I use the spray protectant from Nordstrom Rack for all my suede shoes esp for my Uggs. It is a grey can with a red label i think.. but yeah it works! Judging by how much it rains here in Seattle... I can see the raindrops rolling off. Haha.. I spray a few hours ahead so it can settle in and dry. Hope that helps!

  4. Those Nike wedges are sweet! Some of the sneaker wedges I've seen blatantly look like they have a wedge, but I like how discreet your Nikes are :) As for suede protectants, I haven't used any but I heard that ReviveX Nubuck works pretty well. You can find it on Amazon.

    Cheers,

  12. I have been following the sneaker wedge trend for forever, but I still haven't taken the plunge and bought a pair of my own. But I will! They always look so awesome on everyone <3
    And thank you for your kind comment girl. You have no idea how much it meant just reading those kind words. I'll be explaining more in my next post, but I'll be alright. :)

  13. I love your sneakers!! I've been in the market for a pair, but haven't bit the bullet yet, mostly because I can't decide on whether they are worth the price. These are fantastic, though!! You have such a terrific blog!
