Trend Report: High Top Sneakers

(images via Google)

The sneaker trend started by Isabel Marant seems to have spread all over the world. A colorful pair of sneakers is an awesome alternative to shoes like ballet flats or chunky boots, plus they add this sporty edge to an outfit and work great with skinny jeans, shorts or simple leggings (how hot does Miranda Kerr look in those leather leggings and Isabel Marant sneakers?). I love the playful color combos of Isabel Marant high tops but the fact that they retail for $600-$700 makes me look for more affordable alternatives (some of the sneakers below have a concealed wedge, so they still make you taller, looking like simple flats).
