The sneaker is undoubtedly having a moment. From the cult following of Isabel Marant’s Bekket to the running shoes walking down Raf Simons’ Fall 2012 Menswear show, fashion just got a little more comfortable. While we’re definitely not suggesting to say goodbye to the platform stunners gracing Chictopia’s front page, we are completely open and excited to welcome a variety of options to our fashionable footwear world. Here’s our how-to and style guide about welcoming a new year with some new, more effortlessly comfortable (read: lazy) shoe options to finish off an outfit!

The most high fashion of high tops, the hidden wedge sneaker heel has gained a cult following of editor-at-large-sized proportions seen running around fashion weeks all around the globe. While not the first of its kind, Isabel Marant’s shoe is obviously the star of the moment. From blogger to model to editor, the sneaker heel provides a bit of comfort, couple inches of height, and a whole lot of statement. Perfection for a model-off-duty look like Annabella’s.

→ A twig-leg silhouette works well with the chunky wedge, go for a skinny pant. 
→ Monochromatic outfits give the sportiness of the shoe a 90s feel.
→ Mix up the textures with leather, wool, and cotton; effortless dressing for a statement shoe.
