Sneaker Freaker: a peek at Isabel Marant s/s 2012

The Isabel Marant wedge sneaker is unmistakably thé musthave shoe of 2011. The shoes appeared all over the blogosphere and adorned the feet of many celebrities. They even became the stars of Beyoncé’s latest music video; ‘Love On Top‘. Unfortunately these beauties are sold out EVERYWHERE, so there’s nothing left to do than to sit and wait for the new batch; those of S/S 2012..

I did some digging around the internets and here’s what popped up: a complete new range of colorful sneakers for next spring.

I’m not as much as a fan as I was of the previous line that had more neutral colors (beige, grays, black..) and I’m kind of still hoping these are going to be in the permanent collection. I really feel like banging my head against the wall for not buying the beige ones when they were available at Net-a-Porter earlier this year. That is why I’ve decided to stop hesitating and get the beige/soft pink velcro ones (3rd pic) as soon as I get a phone call from one of the stores.

You can pre-order your pair at:

Icon (Brussels)
Glorybox (Brussels)
Graanmarkt 13 (Antwerp)
Step By Step (Antwerp)
First shipment expected in February.

Are you a fan of the (new) IM sneakers? Is your name on some waiting list?

    I’m not a big fan of the Isabel Marant sneakers (I dig the boots more 😉 ). But surprisingly I really like the dark ones with blue and burgundy..

    I hope you get yours soon! xo

      I’m not sure you’ll still be able to find them since most pairs are reserved for the people on the waiting lists. My advice is to contact every store in London (you can find a list here: ) to see whether or not they’re expecting a second delivery of sneakers. Also make sure to check, and on a daily basis to see when new pairs have arrived. Have yourself put on the waiting lists for next season while you’re at it, so you’ll be the first to receive the new ones when you’re all out of options for this season. I know it’s a bit of a hustle, but it’s definitely worth it! I hope you’ll find them! Good luck! 🙂
