Wedge sneakers have been around for a while now, but they’re still a trend for Spring 2013. Isabel Marant may not like when other designers and retailers copy her designs, but it seems like just about everyone is selling their own version of the shoe. While sneakers in black and other dark colors have been popular during the winter months, there are plenty of lighter and brighter versions on the market for spring.

If you’re not sure how you feel about wearing wedge sneakers, why not try on a pair of embellished sneakers? Chanel recently released a high-top version covered in flowers, while other designers are covering their kicks in studs, snaps, sequins, buckles, and other notions.

Some sneakers fans are sticking to traditional trainers for spring. Céline designer Phoebe Philo has been wearing sneakers like these for years, but only now has everyone else in the industry realized that she was on to something. Stay comfortable in sneakers while also adding some color to your look with the new, bright styles for the season.
