High heels masquerading as high tops, these wedge sneakers are as inspired by hip-hop impresarios as they are by men's couture – Lanvin and Pierre Hardy were the first to show this look on the runway. To make a striking statement,don a bright colour-blocked pair or go one step further in wedge kicks with a gilded finish. Stability,comfort and the rarefied gait that a heel imparts –what better way to show that you've got game?
