I have a really hard time being casual. Mostly because being casual doesn’t generally involve heels, and I lack casual clothes, so I’m always excited when I see something casual that seems to fit my lifestyle. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw wedge sneakers. Or maybe it was trepidation. Disgust? Confusion? Fascination? It was all those things. It was one of those times when my brain was screaming no and yet there was a part of me saying, “But they’re wedges.” Why did this ever seem like a good idea? Yeah. They’re also sneakers, and ones that are totally non-functional at the one thing I think sneakers should be used for; working out. Most of them also have Velcro, which put me off (see previously mentioned feelings on Velcro) enough so I didn’t run out and buy them, figuring I’d probably look stupid and awkward in them, just like I look stupid and awkward in anything casual. Sure, this sounds paranoid, but it’s also totally true. You should see me in shorts.
