The Isabel Marant Boston sneakers

Isabel Marant Boston sneakers (still available here but probably not for long)


The inevitable happened. The oh-so-famous hidden-heel wedged Isabel Marant sneakers which I once despised got the best of me and I just received my first pair. But not just any pair, I chose the Boston sneakers, the slightly more low-key style from the Isabel Marant sneakers family*. Getting the latest snake-effect version somehow makes me believe that I don't own the exact same pair of shoes as everyone else (ok, I'm dreaming here). And let me tell you something. I adore these shoes. The sports vibe of these make me feel cool and young (well, I mean, cooler and younger because I'm obviously still cool and young). Plus they are comfortable and add a few extra inches which is never so bad when you're not on the tall side like moi.

If like me you are weak and finally are ready to give in into hidden-heel sneakers there are still some online shops where you can find them: Net-a-Porter, My Theresa (white Betty, very few sizes), La Garçonne. If you're not willing to pay the full price there are plenty of cool alternatives. To be honest, I was planning on ordering the Topshop ones just before I went crazy about the Boston (aargh, damn you NAP !).


From top left: black suede sneakers (ash), multi-colored sneakers (ash), silver and white sneakers

And now tell me truth, was I crazy to fall for this stupid trend ????

*: to the non-Isabel Marant obsessed (take this information with cauton, I'm not an expert either): there are two different styles of Isabel Marant sneakers; the austronaut-like Bekett/Willow named ones, which I'm still glad not to like, and the Betty/Bobby, the Boston are the snake-effect version of the latter.

  6. Are these as comfy as say, normal flat sneakers? Eg. would you go travelling overseas to go sightseeing all day in them? Just wondering if they're worth investing in them, I have both the Topshops in cream and black, and thought they were comfy, until I went travelling, just for a weekend, and my feet started getting quite sore after only a bit of walking (mostly rubbing on the inside, rather than the heel itself).

    I too like that these are the more 'tame' versions of the IM sneakers (even though I like the funky look of the other ones), as then they'd hopefully be more 'timeless'...

    Sorry about the long-winded comment!

    1. Not at all !!! It's so nice to read so complete comments :)) unfortunately I cannot really sau if these sneakers are as comfortable as they seem. I sure hope they are, but I have only tried them at home. I wanted to buy the topshop but was put off by the bad reviews that I read about them. I ll keep you posted xx

  8. I'd buy them too if I could afford them. I think the pair you have are the best incarnation of the three.

  9. I succumbed to the wedge sneakers trend too. It was inevitable after seeing so many ladies that look absolutely incredible in them. These Boston ones are gorgeous. I've always preferred Bobbys and Bettys and the Bostons are very similar. They're more low key than The Willow and Bekkets.

  10. I've got the willow sneaker ones from isabel marant! it's one of my latest trends and my all time favorite shoes! Maybe it's because it's my first pair of expensive shoes, but they have literally become my second skin! xx
