I was asked if I would like to try out a pair of Upere Wedge Sneakers. Being in the UK I had not heard of or seen wedged sneakers before. When they arrived I was impressed, each sneaker was packed in their own bag and put together in a box. There were also two small canvas bags in the box so you can store the sneakers in them.
Looking at the Upere wedge sneakers I though they looked really nice, they looked very stylish and something I would definitely wear. They look sporty and do not look like they are wedges at all.
They feature black upper made of suede material, black tongue, oval toe cap with three velcro straps. There is a 50mm/2 inch hidden heel and the sole is anti-slip.
I love the fact that the wedge is actually hidden. I am only 5ft 4 and a little bit of height is a great thing for me and people do not even know that they are wedges. I think if the wedges were visible that the appeal for the sneakers wouldn’t be the same.
Upon wearing the Upere wedge sneakers I found that they were very comfortable, even on the first time of wearing which is unusual for me as I usually end up with achy feet when I wear new footwear for the first few times. I didn’t have any of that.
The tongues of the sneakers were padded well and there was no rubbing in that area. Plus having velcro is a bonus as it means no tying laces up.
The only thing I was a little put off with was the colour of the sole, it looked a bit cheap compared with the rest of the sneakers.
All in all though I think these are fantastic footwear that are very comfortable and really nice to wear. As people have not seen these in the UK, well who know me anyway they were asking where they were from and how much they were as they looked new and different.
For those that asked you can purchase Upere Wedge Sneakers at Upere priced at around $169.78
