Recurring Fashion Trend We'd Like to See Die: High Heel Sneakers

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Point of discussion: Inappropriately heeled shoes. Remember the high-heel work boot? Or the Spice Girls-era platform sneaker? Aren't we all glad that's over.

Just when you though it was safe to go outside again... Luxury Italian handbag, shoe, and RTW label Hogan may have gone a step too far this spring. Check out the company's (ironically named?) "Attractive" high-heel wedge sneaker. The satin-and-suede contraption is prominently featured in Hogan's spring 2010 ad campaign and costs about $480 in stores. Thoughts?
