Isabel Marant Redesigns Her Wedge Sneakers for Winter

Just when it looked like the heyday of wedge sneakers was over, out comes the trend originator herself, Isabel Marant, with a new Fall/Winter 2013 redesign. Because it’s Isabel Marant, there’s no question that it will click.

In fact, we already spotted Rachel Bilson, a card-carrying member of the young Hollywood trendsetting set, grabbing the opportunity to test them out on a rare chilly day in LA.

The redesign fits and looks like the pioneering Isabel Marant “snedges,” but a closer inspection reveals that they’re actually more of a cross between wedge sneakers, snow boots, and … mukluks?

For those of you wishing that the wedge sneakers trend would just die already, it looks like it’s still going to be a long ride!
