This isn’t your average 2010s wedge sneaker. In fact, it’s the 2010s wedge sneaker — the Isabel Marant Bekett sneaker, popularized by Beyonce in her music video for “Love on Top” and worn by the likes of Rihanna, Gisele Bündchen, Kendall Jenner, and other celebs throughout the decade. This shoe acted as a bridge, transitioning us away from towering platform pumps and into a decade of streetwear, sneaker obsessions, and athleisure. Isabel Marant is relaunching their iconic wedge sneaker 10 years later, now called the Balskee in its redesigned form.
If you don’t feel quite ready to jump back into the wedge sneakers you bought 10 years ago, this reimagined take on the shoe is for you. These new Isabel Marant sneakers will add an extra 10 centimeters (almost four inches) of height, half of which is in the chunky, textured sole for support that feels nothing like your average four-inch heel.
With a chunky, textured sole that hits the streetwear mark for cool-girl sneaker collectors and textured overstitched leather, Isabel Marant stays true to the original design of the beloved Bekett. The available colorways are updated with more primary tones (black, off-white, yellow, primary green, and red) rather than the originally available muted shades of olive green/taupe and ecru.
“I’ve never stopped wanting to wear them. The most comfortable things are the things you will always wear and that you are never fed up with,” says the designer herself.
And now, for some of our favorite 2010s celebs in wedge sneakers…
The new Balskee sneaker is available for purchase in Isabel Marant stores and isabelmarant.com in June 2021.
