Well it all started a few years back.. when those WHO COULD rushed out to grab the hidden wedge classics offered by Isabel Marant... these shoes could be seen on the well heeled feet of everyone from Gwen Stefani to Beyonce‘ ( Love on Top video)… They are quite the find.. and IZZY’S (Isabel Marants) are not cheap.
These joints start at about $650 per pair. We knew here at Bamboobanga that something this simple would SURELY be duplicated.. and BAM.. in steps Nike, Puma, Giuseppe Zanotti, and EVERYBODY with a wedge sneaker at varied price points.. I feared that we would leave this shoe in 2012 but alas it is very much alive and still kicking and I believe they are brilliant.. This sneaker has the same impact that the Manolo Blahnik “TIMS” did several years back. A masculine shoe was recrafted for our delicate B-girl feet .. hahaha .. and ladies from the runways to the ghettos are jumping onboard.
NIKE has even created a re working for the CLASSIC DUNK .. with the hidden wedge heel.. EXCELLENT..
You can find the Nike joints priced anywhere between 120.00 and 150.00
Nike and Puma version after the JUMP!! Continue reading
