Wedge sneakers add the benefits of high heel shoes to the good looks of established sneaker silhouettes, and the look is spreading. It started with the Nike Dunk Sky High, and has recently reached further into the Nike Sportswear classic basketball catalog as well as other brands’ offerings. Now Three Stripes gets on board with the concealed lift look, debuting the adidas Originals Basket Profi Up in a snakeskin colorway that reflects another of 2013’s key footwear trends. If we count the Dunk and Revolution Sky High as well as the Vans Sk8-Hi Wedge and this Basket Profi Up, we now have two examples each in the cup sole and vulc-soled blucher categories; which looks best? Let us know your answer after you’ve seen more below, then grab a pair from Originals dealers like Wish.
