Sneakers for fashion are officially here to stay. While some say that wedge sneakers will soon lose their charm, we don’t see this happening soon. Hi-top (non-wedge) classics, our perennial favorites, will likely remain just as popular as well.
We actually find it hard to believe that high heel tennis shoes (especially wedge sneakers) will lose their popularity soon because celebrities are still making them happen.
Celebrities from London to Hollywood have made sporty footwear their go-to shoes for running errands, traveling, and whatnot. We’re not surprised, really. After all, sneakers are a lot like ballet flats — very comfortable — with the additional benefit of keeping your feet warm and protected.
Check out the following ladies sporting their kicks in the last two days. Maybe you should take this as your cue to take out your sneakers for a spin today.
1. Jessie J in Jimmy Choo

Jessie’s Panama sneakers come in several renditions. These shoes are crafted from suede, patent, and metallic leather.

They also feature 4.5-inch-tall wedge heels, lace-up closures, and classic rubber outer soles.

If you’re not fond of wedge heels, Farfetch currently offers the non-wedge hi-top versions of Panama on their site right now. They’re slightly cheaper than those at full retail price, so they might be worth considering.

2. Sarah Jessica Parker in Philippe Model
Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted taking her kids to school yesterday, sporting printed pants and a pair of olive green wedge sneakers from Philippe Model.

We can’t say that this outfit was her best, but she magically pulled it off.

Sarah’s Philippe Model sneakers are made of suede and leather and feature a combination of lace-up and Velcro fasteners.

The wedge heels are about 4 inches tall, so they’re pretty comfortable to walk in.

3. Cara Delevingne in Jimmy Choo
Party girl Cara Delevingne was spotted hanging out in North London with her girlfriends while suited up in a printed jacket and a pair of sleek black studded sneakers from Jimmy Choo — the “Tokyo.”

4. Kendall Jenner in Chunky Red Hi-Tops
Another lady we found sporting some hi-top sneakers while out and about in Hollywood was Kendall Jenner. The reality-TV-star-turned-model wore a pair of chunky poppy-coral-hued hi-tops with her very casual ensemble.

She rocked a pair of Nike Air Red October Yeezy 2 sneakers with jeans, a Junk Food T Rex Raglan tank, Celine Cl 41756/S Zz-Top sunglasses, and a Celine Nano bag.

If you want Kendall’s sneakers, you can steal the look with the following DC “Rebound” hi-tops instead. These shoes will only set you back a relatively manageable $80 on Zappos.
